Last chance. Spurs are nearly dead in the top-4 race, and anything short of run of winning form will mean yet another season with no Champions League. Tottenham find themselves short of defenders, as Ben Davies and Kyle Walker are both out for the season. The new makeshift Spurs defense will find a tough task hosting a City side that has torn their defense asunder in recent matches.
City arrives to White Hart Lane in second place, boosted by two consecutive league wins as its competition has dropped points. City will be having their own absences though, as Kompany, Jovetic, and Yaya Toure are unavailable to play with injury. City want to make sure that they stay out of fourth place, can they return to London and deal Spurs more pain in their home stadium?
As for the Prediction League, only Skipjack foresaw Spurs drawing Southampton. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League -- one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:
|Dustin Gerber Martin||13|
This week's predictions:
Dustin Gerber Martin: A back line of Chiriches, Dier, Fazio, and Vertonghen? NOPE. 3-1 City
Kevin: City sucks, 3-0 Spurs
Mechanick: Miraculously, we don't let Aguero score a haul against us. 1-1 Draw
Bryan A.: 5-2 Spurs. Because nothing would be more Spurs than winning this and losing everything else.
Salmon Chase: 4-0 City, and finally the fire the manager brigade HAS COME BACK TO TOTTENHAM
Ben Daniels: 3-1 City. There is no joy in Mudville.
Dominic Wood: 5-1 City. All is Lost.
Michael Caley: 2-1 City. Two non-Vertonghen center backs trying to contain Aguero? No.
Skipjack: 3-1 Spurs, clinched with a glorious finish from Bale
Brett Rainbow: 3-1 Spurs. Kane overtakes Aguero to become the Premier League's top scorer.
