Another Tough Test for Manchester City

Manchester City have endured a tough week and it doesn’t get any easier on Saturday. The league leaders could have clinched the title against Manchester United last time out in the Premier League but let slip a two-goal lead and crashed to defeat.
Guardiola’s men were then knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Liverpool on Tuesday and need a response to avoid their season, which promised so much, fizzling out altogether.
The team still has a healthy 13 point lead at the top of the table and will surely be crowned champions. However, their poor form will affect confidence and there’s a real sense they have lost their fear factor.
Mark Ogden at ESPN FC highlighted how Kevin De Bruyne’s lack of form has had an impact:

City have also lost five of their last ten games, so KDB’s loss of form shows how important he is to them.
Spurs will look to take advantage and have a good record against the top sides in 2018. They have beaten Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United and drew 2-2 against Liverpool at Anfield.
A win for Tottenham will also give the club confidence they can seriously challenge City for the title next season and should make for an intriguing game at the Etihad Stadium.
Will Paul Pogba Shine Again for Manchester United?

Manchester United, meanwhile, will be on a high after their comeback win over City which was inspired by midfielder Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman has been dropped at times by Jose Mourinho in 2018 after some poor performances and produced another below-par showing in the first half.
However, he turned on the style after the break to score twice before Chris Smalling headed the winner. Pogba was not the only impressive player as Alexis Sanchez shrugged off some indifferent form to grab two assists.
Samuel Luckhurst at the Manchester Evening News was impressed with the Chilean.

Pogba’s goals completely overshadowed him but Sanchez had an exceptional second-half yesterday. Those dinks caused #mufc so much grief at Arsenal in December but they’ve been rare since January.
Manchester United will hope the game can be a turning point for both players, and they may be relishing the visit of West Brom who are six points adrift at the bottom of the table.
Caretaker manager Darren Moore oversaw a 1-1 draw with Swansea City last time out, but any kind of result at Old Trafford against a buoyant United would be a huge surprise.
