Tottenham will once again make the journey up to Manchester tomorrow, to face Manchester City again. This game comes just days after their thrilling Champions League tie, and the neutrals watching on will be hoping to see another seven goal thriller between these two. Spurs would love nothing more than getting the double over their Premier League rivals, while City will come out desperate for revenge after what happened on Wednesday. 

City won the game on the night on Wednesday 4-3, but that was not enough to them to qualify for the next round. The aggregate score was 4-4 across the two legs, with Tottenham going through thanks to the three away goals they scored at the Etihad. Tottenham set up as though they knew they would have to score in the game, and let's hope they set up in exactly the same way for this one, to give us another open game. 

The tie is absolutely vital for Manchester City in their title bid against Liverpool, while Spurs also need points for their top four battle. City are in control of the title race, but only by a fine margin. If they win all their games remaining then they win the league, but one slip up could let Liverpool in. Spurs are third right now, although just one point clear of moving outside of the top four, so every point counts for them too. 

Despite huge disappointment on Wednesday night, City are strong favourites to take all three points from this second meeting of the two teams. They are priced up at 27/100 to win on Saturday while Tottenham can be backed at a huge 10/1 and the draw is available at 5/1
