Tottenham Hotspur take on Manchester City this weekend in the Premier League, and former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp does not fancy their chances against the champions.
A ten-game unbeaten run at the start of the season had Spurs on top of the league, but three straight defeats now have the Lilywhites down to fifth in the table after the loss against Aston Villa last weekend.
With key players such as James Maddison and Micky van de Ven ruled out, and Cristian Romero suspended, the situation does not appear to be about to improve any time soon – at least, not with a visit to Manchester City on the horizon.
Redknapp predicts Man City win over Spurs
City are currently second in the Premier League, three points ahead of Postecoglou’s men. And, Harry Redknapp cannot see his former side getting anything from the Etihad this weekend.
He told BetVictor: “Here we go, the big one! Pep was probably annoyed to not get the win against Liverpool last week, they let that one slip. That was a great comeback from them during the week against Leipzig though, they probably feel unbeatable at home.

“That’s three defeats in a row for Spurs, Ange has to be concerned. The injuries keep mounting up for his side as well, it’s a really difficult spell for them. They’ve still been creating chances though and with the likes of Son and Kulusevski still in the side, they’ll always be a threat.
“I can see Spurs scoring but I can only see a City win. Doku looks like such a threat and with him on one side, Foden on the other, City will be such a hard side to stop.”
Prediction: Man City 3-1 Spurs.

Unfortunately, I just cannot see us winning this one. City are a tough side to play at the best of times, never mind when half the squad are out injured. I think it will be fairly comfortable for City this one, I’ll go for a 2-0 home win.
