De Jong admits Spurs fixture is “crunch” game


Champions League Trophy - Header

Manchester City midfielder Nigel De Jong admits that the game against Tottenham on May 5th at Eastlands looks as if it could decide who finishes fourth in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently two points ahead of City in the race for the final Champions League spot.

“The Tottenham game looks more and more like the crunch,” said De Jong.

“But we have Arsenal and Villa before that, so they are pretty big games, especially Villa because they are direct opponents for fourth place.

“People are forgetting about Liverpool but they are still out there as well, so we need points, or one of the other teams will get them and take fourth themselves.”
