Nathan Ake has said that Manchester City expect a tough game on Sunday despite the fact that Tottenham are missing many of their key players due to injuries.
While three back-to-back defeats would usually be a crisis, there were several major mitigating substances, including the fact that the Lilywhites are missing almost an entire team of players due to injuries and suspensions.
Additionally, Ange Postecoglou’s men gave a very good account of themselves against Chelsea despite being down to nine men, held the lead against Wolves right until injury time and were unlucky against Villa, having three goals ruled out for offside and hitting the woodwork twice.

Tottenham will be hoping that their luck turns at the Etihad Stadium and Ake insisted that the Premier League champions will certainly not take their opponents lightly.
The Dutchman told Premier League Productions (25/11/23 at 2:50 pm) about Sunday’s game: “It will be difficult again. We have some very tough fixtures in a row. We play at home. We are always confident here.

There are no expectations on Spurs heading into this game, given their injuries and recent results. So, Ange Postecoglou’s men can play without any pressure and look to hurt their opponents, which they certainly have the firepower to do.
