Mauricio Pochettino’s troops will believe they can inflict more pain on Manchester City this weekend after seeing Liverpool triumph at the Etihad, says former midfielder Michael Brown.

We face City at Wembley on Saturday and we will be hoping to inflict a fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions on Pep Guardiola’s men following their Champions League exit at the hands of the Liverpool

And Brown believes Spurs will have gained confidence from watching the runaway league leaders lose to Manchester United and Liverpool twice in the space of the last week.

Speaking to Sky Sports he said
“They are [vulnerable], Tottenham are playing so well at the moment, and at Wembley they are a fantastic footballing side.They will be looking forward to the game. If they have ever been given confidence it is now after the week that Manchester City have had.

Brown added: “You look at the Liverpool game. No goal given, Pep [Guardiola] has got sent off. It all adds to the confidence. Spurs will be looking at that, they’ll have the belief.It is going to be a really entertaining game.”

Are we facing City at the right time? Or will it be a case of facing a wounded animal ready to bite back. Let us know your thoughts below

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. As a Spurs fan my main concern going into the game against Manchester City this weekend is that there is perhaps a false perception that City will be somehow compromised and weakened by their recent losses. Psychologically I think it may well prove to be the exact opposite, and Tottenham could well rue their approach if they do not look at this fixture with an element of caution. At this point I see Man City a bit like a wounded animal, more dangerous than ever and with a point to prove and a title inevitably to wrap up sooner rather than later. So in this respect I hope that Spurs are at their very best and guarded against this very possibility despite the obvious notion that they go in prepared fresher than their Mancunian counterparts. One thing is certain the next two fixtures are season defining to an almost certain degree and I look forward to that with great anticipation.

  2. Yes I agree although we don’t know what the exertions of last night has taken out of City, Spurs have had a full week to prepare. Also, Fernandhino has been crucial for them this season protecting the back four, and he’s absent through suspension. I’m quietly confident no more.
