Harry Redknapp predicts Manchester City won't keep a clean sheet against Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur are set to travel to Manchester City at the weekend.

Harry Redknapp has told the London Evening Standard that he doesn’t believe Manchester City will be able to cope with Tottenham Hotspur’s attacking quality.

Spurs have played some wonderful, flowing football this campaign - with the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli both in sparkling form.

City, meanwhile, have been shown up defensively on occasions - and they were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City in their most recent outing.

And Redknapp believes that Manuel Pellegrini’s side have no chance of shutting Spurs out, when the two sides meet at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

“How are they going to cope with Tottenham,” Redknapp questioned. “Okay, Spurs don’t have someone with Vardy’s pace but you can’t see City keeping a clean sheet for love nor money at the moment.

“Spurs must look at the title race and think they have a real chance. They are in three competitions which complicates things but the League is the most important.”

If Tottenham were to win at the Etihad, it would put a serious dent in City’s Premier League winning ambitions, while strengthening their own claim.

With Leicester set to take on Arsenal, one of Tottenham’s fellow title-chasers will take points off each other, providing Mauricio Pochettino’s side with a great opportunity.

Tottenham are currently in second place in the top-flight standings, and they travel to City unbeaten in their last 11 away league matches.
