Premier League week 34preview Spurs battle the Citizens

Over the past three games, a season full of defensive solidity has seen City's defensive stalwarts collapse and concedes eight goals - with the majority coming from personnel errors.

Pochettino's side have been nothing short of fascinating for much of this campaign, taking their progressive approach into the Champions League and performing admirably against some of Europe's contemporary greats. It is not just me wanting to build some sort of image about us.

"We have the quality, the right spirit and the experience in the Premier League", said captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Mauricio Pochettino insists that Tottenham's second goal at Stoke last weekend being awarded to Harry Kane is "not a big issue".

The England striker was adamant he had to get the credit for the strike and managed to get the Premier League's goal accreditation appeals panel to award it in his favour.

The two Premier League giants go head-to-head this evening at Wembley in an intriguing clash.

City boss Pep Guardiola added: "We have to try to be who we were during the season".


City beat Spurs 4-1 in December but that is their only win in their last five league games against them (D1, L3).

That is certainly an achievement that can not be overlooked, but the club's European failures in the last two weeks will pose questions about City's outlook on the continent next season.

It took his tally to 25 goals for the season, four behind Liverpool's Salah who, along with a number of other players, immediately appeared to question the decision on Twitter.

Sergio Aguero could be a big miss for City as they are one of his favoured opponent. Having had all week to prepare they should arrive in a far better state, both physically and mentally, compared to the City players who will need to recover from three painful defeats in the last 10 days.

Two assists also came in a 3-0 win for the Blues, making the game Salah's best performance for Chelsea. One of the successes we have had is when we drop points, we have then win, win, win win.

Left-back Rose picked up the minor problem after playing 90 minutes against Stoke, though his absence is not expected to be lengthy.
