Harry Redknapp tells talkSPORT: Tottenham will be Manchester City’s toughest test of the season
Tottenham play Manchester City this weekend
Thursday, December 14, 2017
Harry Redknapp believes Tottenham will provide Manchester City with their toughest test of the season.
City followed up their victory over bitter rivals Manchester United last weekend by thrashing Swansea on Wednesday night to make it a record 15 consecutive wins in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s side have dropped only two points all season, but Redknapp reckons Spurs have a real chance of halting the runaway leaders’ charge.
“Spurs is going to be a big test for Man City,” the north London club’s former manager told talkSPORT.
“Tottenham will be their biggest test.
“If Tottenham are firing on all cylinders, they can certainly give Man City a real game at the weekend.”
While Redknapp would not be surprised to see Spurs end City’s unbeaten run, he admits he cannot see Guardiola’s side being overhauled.
City go into Saturday’s clash at the Etihad 11 points clear of second-placed United and Redknapp said: “They are all playing for second.
“There is only going to be one winner now and everybody else is playing for the Champions League positions.”
