The Tottenham Hotspur fans have been in fine spirits in the Transfer Tavern of late due to their side’s brilliant form in 2018.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side took a while to find their rhythm this season, but it’s better late than never, as they look destined to finish inside the top-four for the fourth consecutive season. The Lilywhites victory over Chelsea a fortnight ago was followed up by a gutsy away performance at Stoke City and, the combination of results has enabled them to move 10-points clear of Chelsea with just 6 fixtures left to play.
It would take an almighty collapse for Spurs to finish outside the top-four at this stage, but Chelsea will be hoping that their opponents tomorrow, namely Manchester City, will be do them a huge favour by taking all three-points away from Wembley.
Unfortunately for Chelsea supporters, City arrive in North-London following three of their most intense matches of the season in which they lost all three, so there is a possibility that Guardiola’s players will be feeling physically and mentally drained tomorrow afternoon.
With that to consider, Tottenham’s attacking talents should capitalise on this by taking the game to the Citizens in the early stages. One player who could certainly cause City plenty of problems with his direct style of dribbling and electric pace is Heung-Min Son (valued at £31.5 million by Transfermarkt).
Son has been in brilliant form for the Lilywhites this season with 18 goals and 9 assists to show for his efforts from 46 appearances across all-competitions. His end-product is clearly top drawer, but his ability to create space for his teammates through a combination of trickery, neat interplay and intelligent movement could be Tottenham’s most valuable weapon against City tomorrow.
The likes of Nicolas Otamendi and the former Spurs talent Kyle Walker have had their defensive frailties exposed in recent weeks, so Son should take note of this and establish a plan to exploit City’s weaknesses tomorrow.
Tottenham would effectively secure their place in the top-four with a victory over Man City and, if Son bring his a-game to Wembley then the Lilywhites faithful will be set for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
