Premier League

Saturday’s Premier League action concludes at Wembley Stadium where Tottenham Hotspur take on leader Manchester City.

The hosts are unbeaten in fourteen league games, with their last defeat coming at the hands of this weekend’s opponents four months ago.

Six straight wins have put them on the brink of Champions League qualification for next season with fifth place Chelsea ten points shy of them going into the weekend.

Another victory here will see them move to within a point of second place Manchester United, who host bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Danny Rose will miss the game after picking up a calf injury following last weekend’s win at Stoke City with Harry Winks and Kyle Walker-Peters long term absentees.

Harry Kane is favourite to open the scoring at 4.33 (10/3) with a number of firms, with Christian Eriksen a 10.0 (9/1) chance with Unibet.

The home win can be backed at 2.75 (7/4) with Bet Victor, with the visitors available at 2.7 (17/10) with several bookmakers. The draw is widely available at 3.6 (13/5).

Pep Guardiola’s side missed the chance to clinch the Premier League title in last week’s Manchester derby with his side squandering a 2-0 half-time lead – eventually losing by three goals to two.

They followed that disappointment with defeat to Liverpool in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final tie, losing 5-1 on aggregate.

They cannot secure the championship on Saturday, and will only be confirmed as Champions this weekend if they win and Manchester United are beaten on Sunday.

Fernandinho misses out through suspension after picking up ten yellow cards while John Stones and Sergio Aguero both miss out through injury.

Gabriel Jesus is 6.1 (51/10) to get the first goal with Unibet of the game ahead of 9.0 (8/1) shot Leroy Sane.

City ran out 4-1 winners in the reverse fixture back in December – the sixth time in eight meetings where both teams have scored.

You can back that to be the case here at 1.57 (4/7) with Betfair while the same firm offer 1.7 (7/10) for there to be three or more goals in the game.
