This isn't a match that Tottenham Hotspur is supposed to win. One of the teams that was supposed to challenge Chelsea for the EPL title, Manchester City is a side soaked in oil and loaded with talent, but a side that has strangely underachieved under coach Manuel Pellegrini this season. The Citizens are fourth in the table, fairly assured of a Champions League position, but now firmly out of the title race. That said, you don't over look the talent that City possesses, and Spurs have felt the brunt of City's talent the past few years, losing the last three matches by a combined 15-2.
Tottenham are coming into this home fixture list with a somewhat makeshift defensive line, but will play a City that is off the boil and without Yaya Toure, who is injured. Will this plus the home pitch advantage give them a shot to get a result?
