In a highly anticipated Premier League clash, Tottenham Hotspur will host Manchester City on Tuesday.

This match is arguably one of the most intriguing of the season, with a Spurs win potentially helping their North London rivals Arsenal win the title, but also giving them a shot at getting top 4 and Champions League football next season. So, will they roll over for City to stop the Gunners? Let's dive into our prediction for this vital match in the title and top 4 races.

Current Form and Recent Performances

Tottenham

Tottenham, currently fifth in the league, recently ended a four-match losing streak with a comeback win against Burnley.

Despite their struggles, Spurs have proven that they're able to make a comeback on a pretty regular basis, rescuing 25 points from losing positions this season.

Manager Ange Postecoglou’s debut season has seen Tottenham set a club record in the Premier League era, something that they will hope to build on with a shot at Champions League football still there after Aston Villa drew with Liverpool last night.

Manchester City

Manchester City, meanwhile, have been on a dominant run, winning their last seven league games.

Their recent 4-0 victory over Fulham, with goals from Josko Gvardiol, Phil Foden, and Julian Alvarez, highlights their incredible attacking threat going forward from all fronts.

City briefly topped the league but were overtaken by Arsenal, maintaining a one-point gap, so this game in hand is pivotal in deciding the title race ahead of the last games of the season on Sunday.

Team News and Lineups

Tottenham will be missing several key players, including Richarlison (calf), Timo Werner (hamstring), Ben Davies (calf), Manor Solomon (knee), Ryan Sessegnon (thigh), Fraser Forster (ankle), and Destiny Udogie (thigh).

Yves Bissouma is also out with a knee problem. This leaves Postecoglou with a tough task in assembling a competitive lineup.

City’s injury list is shorter, with Nathan Ake doubtful after a recent knock and Jack Grealish expected to return from illness.

Pep Guardiola has the luxury of depth, potentially bringing in Kyle Walker and shifting Manuel Akanji or John Stones to cover any defensive gaps.

Prediction

Given Tottenham’s defensive issues and City’s strong form, our prediction leans towards a Manchester City victory.

Tottenham are likely to struggle against City’s relentless attack, leading to our predicted scoreline being 3-1 in favour of Manchester City.
