Manchester City Vs Spurs - predictions

I think there is a sense of ambiguity towards city at the moment. I dont think there is much confidence in a win tomorrow against a vastly improving spurs side, rejuvenated by 'arry' Rednapp. There is certainly confidence in our attacking ability, we have scored more goals at home in the league than any other team, yet away we have conceded the highest amount of goals along with Blackburn rovers, hughes former club. After Thursday nights defensive display it's clear we have a lot to worry about tomorrow. With Kompany missing out through suspension our midfield looks really light weight, gelson struggled against an average FC Twente, how would he cope with Huddlestone. Didi Hamann has looked off the pace recently and I'm not convinced he can really cut it now at this level. We should go all out to beat off advances from spurs for lassana diarra and get him in quick. Richard Dunne has to be sorted out, he isn't leading the team very well with some inept performances and others around him are suffering now as a result. Tomorrow we have to be back to our best, i have no idea what Hughes is going to do, to combat the situation. We can't lose, hughes can't lose or he may well be on is way out. We can't afford to drop points at home with our away record being as shambolic as it is. If spurs were to win, they would only be 1 point behind us in the table.

It is really up to our attacking players to put pressure on the spurs back line, which still isn't great, i would encourage the likes of elano and robinho to get plenty of shots on Gomes as he seems a quite unstable character. Benjani and Jo will hopefully start scoring goals for us upfront. We need our talisman Robinho to continue his form.

I really can't predict, but i will go for a home win.
