Can José Mourinho do what no manager has since Slaven Bilic with West Brom and lead Tottenham to halt the Manchester City juggernaut? The draw on 15 December is the last time Pep Guardiola’s side failed to win, having since reeled off 15 successive victories, reported The Guardian. Yet what is also true is the last team to beat City were Spurs in November so Mourinho can draw on this as inspiration for his players on Saturday.
Tottenham Hotspur must play the "perfect match" if they are to stop a rampant Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday, according to their manager Jose Mourinho. Man City have stormed to the top of the league and have won 15 successive matches in all competitions.
The last time Pep Guardiola's side suffered a defeat was a 2-0 Premier League loss at Tottenham on Nov. 21, since when they are unbeaten in 22 games.
Tottenham's form has deteriorated alarmingly since then and they have lost three of their last four league matches to drop to eighth and bowed out of the FA Cup in a nine-goal thriller that went to extra time at Everton on Wednesday.
"We beat them because we played so, so, so well in that match and that is the only way any team can beat Man City, you have to play very, very well," Mourinho told reporters.
Tottenham vs Man City Goals
At home in the English Premier League this season, Manchester City have played 11, won 8, drawn 2 and lost 1. They have scored 22 goals (24.39 xGF) and have conceded 7 (8.27 xGA). The top scorer for Manchester City is Ilkay Gündogan with 9 goals (6.30 xG), reported InforGol.
In matches away from home this season, Tottenham Hotspur have played 9, won 4, drawn 3 and lost 2. They have scored 19 goals (13.46 xGF) and have conceded 9 (13.05 xGA). The top scorers for Tottenham Hotspur with 13 goals are Harry Kane (10.68 xG) and Son Heung-Min (7.62 xG).
Tottenham vs Man City: Head to Head (H2H)
Man City lead the head to head record between these two clubs. City have won 56, drawn 32, and lost 54 of their last 142 games against Tottenham, Football Whispers cites. However, the Spurs took 4pts from their games against Guardiola's men last season, winning 2-0 at home and drawing 2-2 at the Etihad. Spurs have also won their last two home games against Man City and will be confident they can upset the odds once again this weekend.

02 February 2020: Tottenham 2-0 Man City (Premier League)
17 August 2019: Man City 2-2 Tottenham (Premier League)
20 April 2019: Man City 1-0 Tottenham (Premier League)
17 April 2019: Man City 4-3 Tottenham (Champions League)
09 April 2019: Tottenham 1-0 Man City (Champions League)
Over the years, games between Man City and Tottenham have been pretty even, with the two sides often trading wins. Man City currently have the edge with 63 victories to Tottenham’s 62, but recent form is on the hosts’ side.
As well as winning at home in the league last season, Tottenham also beat Man City 1-0 in the 2019 Champions League quarter-final first leg, giving them a 100% record against this weekend’s opponents at their new stadium, Squakwa cites.
Tottenham vs Man City: Predictions
Pep Guardiola’s side started the season with the aim of getting their title back from Liverpool but have been underwhelming, currently sitting 10th. The Citizens have won three of their opening seven games, drawing three and losing one, but the defeat came against league leaders Leicester who shocked everyone with a 5-2 victory at the Etihad.
It certainly has been a strange season so far, but a Man City win could see them rise as high as fifth in the table if other results go their way, along with a goal difference swing.
But Tottenham will have something to say about that. After opening the campaign in defeat to Everton, Jose Mourinho’s side have bounced back and are currently second, just a point behind Leicester. That run includes their 6-1 win over Man Utd at Old Trafford.
After a rocky start to life in North London, Tottenham and Mourinho have certainly found their feet and will want another big statement win to prove they are title contenders.
