Eden Hazard talks exclusively to Sky Sports ahead of Chelsea's game with Southampton

Harry Kane has been in tremendous form, scoring 24 goals in 31 matches, and will look to capture the season's Golden Boot.

That left City's mesmerising front five to pick them off resulting in a heavy 4-1 defeat.

When Mendy ruptured a cruciate ligament in only his fifth game, Guardiola was forced to use midfielder Fabian Delph, winger Oleksandr Zinchenko and, latterly, new £57m central defender Aymeric Laporte at left-back. Averaging 4.42 shots per 90, the Egyptian has a conversion rate of 23.77% so far meaning his scoring a couple of times every full game he plays.

Midfielder Dele Alli, who scored in his side's 2-0 win over City in the same fixture last season, felt the matches against the top six sides in the League offers more space for him to exploit.

Spurs host champions-elect Manchester City to Wembley on Saturday (tomorrow) hoping to further delay City's title triumph by inflicting a fourth straight defeat on Pep Guardiola's men in all competitions.

City have injury concerns heading into tomorrow with Sergio Aguero ruled out, John Stones missing again, and Benjamin Mendy still not ready.

"Because we are battling against Liverpool for the top four as well it's a bit of excitement".

Why? Rafa Benitez has done a tremendous job of making his Newcastle side a tough nut to crack, something highlighted by just one defeat in their past seven games. A win will see the Terriers climb up the table while the Hornets will hit the 40 point mark if they get all three points.

"We need to accept that people have different opinions".

City proved too hot to handle for Spurs on a freezing cold night in Manchester.

Spurs have won six in a row and are unbeaten at home in the league since their opening game at Wembley this season as suggestions that they'd struggle in their temporary home were greatly overstated.

By then, Liverpool will have played Bournemouth at Anfield, and Kane will know if Salah has added to his 29 goals.

Hugo Lloris is certain to keep his place between the sticks despite his error against Stoke City last weekend while Jan Vertonghen will also retain his place in defence. They have been playing great with a lot of success in the last two, three season and are in the semi-final of the FA Cup this season.
