Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou has affirmed his team’s determination to challenge Manchester City in their upcoming match, despite the potential repercussions for the Premier League title race. 

The fixture carries significant weight as a victory for Tottenham could bolster Arsenal’s chances of clinching the title.

Manchester City’s 4-0 win over Fulham moved them to the top of the table, placing them within touching distance of a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title. However, Arsenal remain hot on their heels, poised to reclaim the lead if they secure a win against Manchester United.

With City having a game in hand against Tottenham, Postecoglou acknowledged the dual significance of the match for his team. While a win would keep Tottenham’s Champions League aspirations alive, it could also provide a significant boost to Arsenal’s title aspirations.

”We’ve still got six points to play for, that’s the key thing for us,” he said. “We’ve got a big game on Tuesday night against Man City, that’ll be a great test for us. Then we’ve got Sheffield United away so let’s see where we can get to and where we end up playing our football.”


Postecoglou expressed confidence in his team’s ability to compete against the reigning champions, emphasising the importance of seizing opportunities and playing their style of football. Despite acknowledging the gap in points between Tottenham and the league leaders, he remained optimistic about his team’s chances.

“They’re an outstanding them. Them and Arsenal are the benchmark [in the Premier League] right now, they’re 20-odd points ahead of us so we’ve got some ground to make up. But it’s at our place, it’s 95 minutes of football and we’re going to have a crack.”

Tottenham’s performance under Postecoglou’s leadership has been commendable, although a recent string of defeats has jeopardised their Champions League ambitions. 

Arsenal will hope to put more pressure on Manchester City when they travel to the red half of the city on Sunday to take on Manchester United.
