Manchester City’s clash with Tottenham looms as a season defining moment

Manchester City’s clash with Tottenham tonight has the potential to be season defining for the world champions. Pep Guardiola’s side holds the destiny of their chase for a fourth consecutive Premier League title in their hands. But a draw or worse tonight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will see them lose their grip on the steering wheel. A season defining moment awaits the world champions in just a few hours’ time.

Tonight’s equation isn’t anything new to Pep Guardiola and the Manchester City squad. It is a scenario they have faced many times in season’s past. Across City’s run of 5 Premier League title wins in 6 seasons, they have faced many must win games with massive consequences. It is their success in these type of matches that define them. It is this trait that sees the City squad staring at an opportunity that may never come again.

A chance to win a record-breaking fourth consecutive Premier League title is within touching distance for Pep Guardiola and his men. But they must win tonight to keep their destiny in their own hands on Sunday against West Ham. While tonight’s match won’t determine the winner of the Premier League title, it has the potential to define City’s season. If they hand the initiative to Arsenal tonight, they may not get it back on Sunday. That is what is at stake for the world champions in a few hours’ time.

Ange Postecoglou’s side will be waiting for the champions tonight. They sit 5th on the Premier League table and, if they are on their game, they could pose a tricky test for the world champions. Pep Guardiola said as much during his pre-game press conference yesterday. He told the media: “I would say it’s not the easiest opponent to play tomorrow. But it is what it is, and we go for it.”

Manchester City’s clash with Tottenham tonight could define City’s season and their chase for their place in history. It is a moment the City squad and their manager have stared down many times before. If they can do it again tonight, they will be staring face to face with history before Sunday’s match against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium.
