Spurs have won their last five home games against Manchester City across all competitions, last losing against them on their own patch in October 2018.

Man City ‘enjoying’ pressure of title race

If any of Manchester City’s players struggled under the weight of their close title battle with Arsenal, they didn’t show it at the weekend. Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off away at Fulham felt, at times, more like a Sunday morning stroll in the park, with Pep Guardiola’s men outshooting their hosts 16-1, generating a massive 3.25 Expected Goals compared to just 0.12 from Fulham. A 4-0 defeat arguably flattered the Cottagers.

City have their title destiny in their own hands and know two more wins will see them over the line, regardless of what Arsenal do. Guardiola is thankful for that but also pleased to see his players handle the pressure. They’ve actively thrived on it, having won their last seven Premier League matches.

“Since they (Arsenal) lost against Aston Villa the destiny is in our hands,” Guardiola said in his post-match press conference. “In the last game (of the season) against West Ham the destiny is in our hands and that is what we want. It will be difficult but we are ready for the challenge.

“My players like to play with pressure, they are used to it. The players enjoy this feeling. This season is the same, don’t think about anything other than the next game. Focus on winning the next game and then we will see what happens. We go to London and try to win.”

Given the contrasting form of the two sides, it’s no surprise to see Man City the strong favourites as they chase a fourth straight title. However, Pep Guardiola will be all too aware of his side’s recent record against the Lilywhites.
