Tottenham vs Manchester City Preview

Chelsea’s Danny Drinkwater has struggled to secure a first-team place

Tottenham haven't conceded a goal in their last four home games in Premier League.

Salah is locked in a battle with Tottenham's Harry Kane for the Premier League's Golden Boot, and he claims his centre-forward rivals have it "easier" - despite his four-goal advantage. "I don't believe it!"

"Harry's a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation".

"I promise it's not a big deal".

That expertly edited footage, which shows a goal-scoring Roma player with Kane's head, of course comes with a reference to Liverpool's Mohamed Salah - a former Roma player.

He [Salah] has done great, he has had an awesome season and has gone ahead, so we will see [if I can catch him]. It is not just me wanting to build some sort of image about us.

And it's the latter who's leading the charts with 29 goals to his name.

United, on a high after their derby win, which was their fifth straight league victory, will expect to pick up another three points at Old Trafford against a West Brom side that looks doomed for the drop and has caretaker manager Darren Moore in charge for the second time. I wasn't involved in this decision.

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

A potential conflict between Russian Federation and the United States in Syria may turn the tide in the entire Middle East region. France is already involved in the US -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the Islamic State militant group in Syria and Iraq.

Pochettino, though, insists it is "not a big deal" and the events have not been discussed since the match.

Kevin De Bruyne hailed Manchester City's mental strength after the Premier League leaders put a torrid week behind them to move within a win of the title by beating Tottenham 3-1.

After the goal, Pep Guardiola's men suddenly looked brittle, just as they had in the second half against Manchester United the previous weekend. Three points against City would be critical for that plight.

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

Spurs are unbeaten in 14 games since the 4-1 defeat to City last December. "We need to show ourselves that we can compete".

"Teams in the bottom half still want to hurt you and they have a lot of quality, but they are always more likely to sit deep and close the gaps between the lines".

As for Manchester City, despite an almost-unassailable lead at the summit of the table, still need a positive result against a Tottenham Hotspur side who are chasing a top three finish.

The Reds face Roma in the Champions League semi-finals in two weeks' time, but the showing of solidarity was enough for one Liverpool fan to even suggest they would be happy to see the Italians win. However, Danny Rose will miss the game after picking up a minor calf strain but is expected to return in time for Tuesday's trip to Brighton.
