Man City one win from Premier League title after winning at Tottenham

"I think we've improved that mentality in the season, always wanting more, focusing on the next game".

Manchester City has won only once in the last five meetings against Spurs.

In head-to-head statistics, these two sides have met on 134 occasions, with Spurs claiming 52 wins compared to City's 51, while 31 matches have ended in stalemates.

If City score a victory over Spurs, then Manchester United will have to beat Newcastle to delay the celebrations for at least another week.

Manchester City (87pts) will clinch the title with one more win from their last five games, or defeat for Manchester United (71) against West Brom or Bournemouth. Liverpool (70) and Tottenham (67) look set to finish in the top four with Chelsea seven points behind in fifth.

Harry Kane will be heading into the contest hoping to further his challenge against Mohamed Salah for the Premier League's Golden Boot, a battle that has been kept interesting after Kane was awarded Tottenham's second goal at Stoke after an appeal.

Pep Guardiola's men have lost their last three games, going out of the Champions League while also missing the chance to wrap up the Premier League title by throwing away a 2-0 lead to go down 3-2 to Manchester United.

Sergio Aguero is also a doubt following a knee complaint after the Liverpool clash this week, meaning Gabriel Jesus could, as expected start up front.

Pochettino has hinted that Toby Alderweireld will continue on the sidelines despite being fully fit so Davinson Sanchez should start alongside Vertonghen in the middle of the back four. But counter-attacking speed might be more important here.

Another target United are said to me monitoring is Tottenham's Danny Rose, and should United sign the Englishman, this would free up space at Spurs.

Chelsea are realistically the only side who could yet catch Tottenham. Our guide reveals all you need to know to watch Tottenham vs Man City online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.

"We need to keep pushing, winning games and this is a massive three points against Manchester City".

The Tottenham striker has won the accolade in both of the last two seasons and could be on course to make it a hat-trick if he can close the gap on the Egyptian, who now leads him by four goals on 29.

I will be backing the Tottenham/Over 2.5 goals double, but won't take anything less than [3.9].

Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it's a bit of excitement.
