Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern are gearing up for a make or break game against Tottenham this weekend and, as per The Guardian, they’ve been given a potentially very welcome boost.
The Citizens have not had the season they would have liked so far with their defensive incapabilities catching them out on a number of occasions.
Indeed, it’s really put their title chances in the balance with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and this weekend’s opponents Spurs all beginning to break free.
A win against the Lilywhites this weekend is a must, then, and it appears that the long awaited first appearance of Gabriel Jesus could be around the corner.
A decision about the striker’s eligibility to play for the club is expected today after he linked up with the squad from Palmeiras a few weeks ago.
He just needs the clearance to be able to run out at the Etihad and, whilst he’s not a defender, fresh impetus up top might not be such a bad thing either.
Our landlord reckons if City lose at the weekend then the best they can hope for in the league is the top four – it’s as simple as that.
