Man City to win by two goals

Manchester City should move to within one win of clinching another Premier League title with a victory at Tottenham on Tuesday.

City have been relentless again during the run-in and now look set to claim a fourth top-flight crown in a row.

Pep Guardiola's side's ruthless demolition of Fulham, when they won 4-0 at a canter on Saturday, means a trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will not hold too many fears for Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and co.

Spurs came from behind to edge out Burnley at the weekend and will likely offer some resistance in the big clash initially as they still harbour hopes of a top-four finish.

However, Ange Postecoglou's side do not look ready to do local rivals Arsenal a big favour in the title race and an away win looks on the cards.

Team news

Spurs forward Richarlison has a calf injury and has been ruled out for the hosts, who have Timo Werner, Ben Davies, Destiny Udogie, Fraser Forster and Ryan Sessegnon all still unavailable.

Yves Bissouma will miss the final two games of the campaign after he suffered a knee injury against Burnley.

City defender Nathan Ake is a doubt after he was substituted in the first half at the weekend with a foot injury but Jack Grealish is available after he missed the win over Fulham due to illness.

The stats

City have won their last seven league games, conceding just five goals in that run.

Ten of City's 26 top-flight wins this season have been by a two-goal margin.

Tottenham ended a sequence of four straight league defeats with a 2-1 home victory over Burnley on Saturday.

Spurs have seen off City in five of the last six meetings between the clubs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

City, however, edged out Tottenham 1-0 away in the FA Cup fourth round in January.


Arsenal's narrow win at Manchester United on Sunday means the title race is going down to the final week but reigning champions City still have it in their own hands with two games to play.

City have been on yet another remarkable end-of-season winning spree, clocking up seven victories in a row thanks to a straightforward 4-0 success at Craven Cottage.

Even though Spurs look like having more to play for than Marco Silva's men, this should also eventually be another routine away win for the title-chasers.

Tottenham have had a habit of causing City problems in recent seasons, winning five of the last 10 meetings between the sides, while they were City's bogey team when hosting them at this magnificent new stadium for several years.

However, City did secure victory on their most recent trip to this part of north London, winning their FA Cup fourth round tie 1-0 at the end of January.

Overall, considering how effortlessly good they have been over the past month, and aligning that with Spurs' recent poor form, there looks to be only one winner.

The visitors can come away with a comfortable victory by two goals to leave them on the brink of the title.
