Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has given his prediction ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League match between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
The dust will just have settled on a dramatic night of Champions League football when the sides will once again take to the field in the early afternoon kick off.
Spurs may have the Champions League bragging rights over Pep Guardiola’s side, but they need to be focused to try and get a positive result from the match to keep their hopes of finishing in the top four on track.
Despite the highs of Wednesday night, Tottenham have lost each of their last four away league games, conceding two goals each time. They last lost more in row on the road in the top-flight between March-May 2004 under David Pleat (6).
Owen, who tipped City to progress past Spurs in Europe has once again backed them to take all three points.
He told BetVictor: “No quadruple for Manchester City this season after Spurs won an epic Champions League quarter-final on away goals at the Etihad midweek. City may count themselves unlucky, but they must dust themselves down and prepare for two tumultuous PL games over the next week given they travel to Old Trafford midweek for the rearranged Manchester Derby.
“City have won their last three PL games against Spurs and, let’s not forget, they did win the second leg tie on Wednesday. Spurs have much to play for themselves as they chase a top four finish – they cannot afford to just concentrate on the Champions League although they will be favourites against Ajax in the semi-final.
“Spurs will always be a threat on the break, but I feel City will take all three points and set up what promises to be an Old Trafford showdown on Wednesday.”
