Tottenham fans fume at 21y/o for first-half display v Man City

The Englishman sustained the problem after playing 90 minutes against Stoke, though his absence is not expected to be lengthy.

Manchester City have looked uncertain and nervy at the back in recent months.

Ahead of this game, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino told the club's official website that his side's mentality will be tested in the final few weeks of the season.

Steve Wilson: "Let's get this straight, Manchester City have been fantastic this season - unbelievable. They're an incredible team with incredible players all over the pitch, but we're going to try to play our football as we always do". They have been the most consistent team with fantastic players, fantastic coaching staff and a fantastic manager.

"City - nearly unplayable for much of the campaign - have now lost half of their last 10 games. They'll be very confident that they are".

He said: "It is not about one result that we are going to show that we are ready or not ready".

"We have already shown we are ready to compete".

After finding his feet once again in the Premier League, Salah has gone on to score 29 goals so far this season at a rate of 1.05 per 90 minutes. "We need to show ourselves that we can compete".

I don't think many would have predicted the campaign Salah is having, and his heroics for Liverpool has Kane singing his praises.

Bournemouth are on the verge of breaking into the top 10, and they could do just that with a win coupled with a Newcastle slip up. The same can be said about Danny Rose, who had mentioned prior to the start of the season that he wanted a new contract with better wages.

Spurs struggled to gain a foothold in the match, and it was no surprise when Gabriel Jesus put City in front in the 22nd minute. Pochettino's side have won 11 and drawn three since losing to the Blues - their best top flight run since 1967.

Victory would see Spurs become the eighth club to win 900 top-flight home matches.

It's still five games to go.

Chelsea are realistically the only side who could yet catch Tottenham.

However, with one more game than Salah remaining, Kane is still predicted to score 4.83 goals before the season is up, taking his final tally just shy of 30. "You cannot underestimate clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, different clubs, big clubs that can win every game", he added.

It would appear that the England striker has been stung by some of the criticism and mockery of his determination to demonstrate that he got a touch on the Eriksen's shot, despite the vindication of the Premier League.

"The Premier League is almost over but for me we can say that Manchester City was the most consistent team".

Probability of away win: 31%.
