Tuesday clash: Ruthless Man City look set to beat Tottenham

Manchester City should move to within one win of clinching another Premier League title with a victory at Tottenham on Tuesday.

City have been relentless again during the run-in and now look set to claim a fourth top-flight crown in a row.

Pep Guardiola’s side’s ruthless demolition of Fulham, when they won 4-0 at a canter on Saturday, means a trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will not hold too many fears for Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and co.

Spurs came from behind to edge out Burnley at the weekend and will likely offer some resistance in the big clash initially as they still harbour hopes of a top-four finish.

However, Ange Postecoglou’s side do not look ready to do local rivals Arsenal a big favour in the title race and an away win looks on the cards.

Spurs forward Richarlison has a calf injury and has been ruled out for the hosts, who have Timo Werner, Ben Davies, Destiny Udogie, Fraser Forster and Ryan Sessegnon all still unavailable.

Yves Bissouma will miss the final two games of the campaign after he suffered a knee injury against Burnley.

City defender Nathan Ake is a doubt after he was substituted in the first half at the weekend with a foot injury but Jack Grealish is available after he missed the win over Fulham due to illness.

City have won their last seven league games, conceding just five goals in that run.

Ten of City’s 26 top-flight wins this season have been by a two-goal margin.

Tottenham ended a sequence of four straight league defeats with a 2-1 home victory over Burnley on Saturday.
