Tottenham have won just one of their last nine Premier League matches, drawing six times in that sequence and as a result, not only have Harry Redknapp’s men given themselves a mountain to climb in terms of qualifying for the Champions League, they are also running the risk of failing to even finish fifth.
Defeat at Manchester City would end any hopes of Spurs clinching fourth and indeed even a draw would effectively rule them out too given the superior goal difference of Roberto Mancini’s charges.
Only a win, priced at 10/3 by , will do for Redknapp’s troops at Eastlands then but on current form it’s hard to see them getting it, especially now they are without PFA Player of the Year, Gareth Bale.
City, for their part, are 19/20 at William Hill and that’s a price worth considering despite the fact that they went down 2-1 at Everton on Saturday and have the FA Cup Final to think about this weekend.
Mancini’s side are strong on home soil, where they have lost just twice this season and there’s just a sense that Tottenham are running out of steam after a long, gruelling campaign.
