Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to put Champions League frustration behind them on Monday evening as we go into an incredibly tough match against Manchester City.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side are only two points off Pep Guardiola’s reigning Premier League Champions and both sides have seven wins from nine, the difference is obviously our two defeats where they picked up draws.
The main difference between the sides when it comes to form is they have scored ten additional goals so far in 2018/19 and conceded four fewer goals than we have and given we aren’t quite on top form when it comes to performances and lapses in concentration, this is a game that could go very wrong indeed.
But why be pessimistic?
As we’re not firing on all cylinders just yet, an optimist would say eventually we will truly click this season and hammer somebody, and whilst I’m not for a second suggesting that will happen on Monday night, there’s enough about the squad to not consider a draw as being either beyond us or an unexpected achievement.
It is, however, potentially a fantastic match to work through PSV disappointments.
