    Is there any chance of Spurs putting up a fight tomorrow? Feels like they've already declared victory and will mail it in tomorrow.

    Actually might wake up for the early game tomorrow. Going back to bed if Pochettino plays a weakened side as he apparently suggested in his press conference.

    I have to wake up at 6 AM every morning to take medication, so if the score is close I'll stick around to watch the end of the match. Hopefully it's close.

    It would be really disappointing if they mailed it in, but that would be par for the course of what teams have done against City this year.

    Despite the emotional dump from the CL Spurs can't really afford to mail it in against City as they are in a pretty tight race for top 4.

    The 3/4 spots are going to get interesting. ManU, Spurs, and Arsenal all have 2 games and most are against top 6 or dangerous mid-table clubs.

    I fully expect Chelsea to drop points against Burnley by playing passive Sarri-ball and letting them park the bus and just burn the clock against us.

    I can't see Spurs winning, they should send out a lot of depth players.

    Why should they? The team they are playing is literally in the same situation they are, Spurs are fighting for to solidify a European place and Spurs know they can hang with them.

    With all the injuries, I just wouldn't be surprised. Plus another match on Tuesday.

    I can't see Spurs winning.

    My biggest hope is that they wear City out so City have less energy for the derby on Wedensday

    I think they can get a point.

    As for United...

    Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and David De Gea demand rise to offset threat of pay cut

    They are going to give absolutely everything to beat City, make no mistake about that. Taking a wage cut would not remotely be in my plans.

    City will rotate and Spurs will rotate. So hopefully Savant isn´t getting up.

    Spurs can´t play the same 11 for the remaining matches so.... and if they win the four other they will certainly be top 4 come end of season. Brighton is more important to me than City. Doesn´t matter if Spurs end up with a heroic point today if they fail to get three points against Brighton. And having fresh legs the week after is far more important than trying to get something from City.

    City can bring on Sane, Fernandinho, Mahrez etc. Spurs can bring on Davies and young players like Skipp and Walker-Peters. I like Skipp and KWP, but obviously the depth City got Spurs are not even close to matching. Having a lot more injuries than City doesn´t help either of course.

    City's 22 are as good as anyone else's 11.

    That's why they're City.

    That is why they are City? You make it sound like City are this historical team that are somewhat "destined" to have a fantastic team.

    But yes. When you spend more than anyone else you do tend to get better depth than teams not spending a penny. Being City or not.

    Good to see Dier back. Not expecting much from him as he has been oh so poor this season, but we need any kind of depth available in midfield these days.

    So random not playing a RB when KWP is available, but OK.

    Not too bad. Still pretty tired though. Try to at least get a draw

    4 CB's? That's odd.

    Foyth as a wingback?

    Spurs should have at least a goal. Do they even want to win this game?

    KdB injured again. He's not had any luck this year.

    Spurs have had 3 or 4 really great chances. Just haven’t been clinical.
