With the title race heating up and now down to the wire, Tim Sherwood has warned Manchester City that they need a win against Tottenham Hotspur.
“He [Pep Guardiola] knows they need to win this football match. They can’t slip up,” Sherwood said on The Debate. “Liverpool are right on their heels, they cannot slip up and I don’t believe they will. I think they’ll win this game tomorrow, but it’s going to be a tough one because Tottenham can beat anyone on their day, as they’ve proved, and it is equally as important for Tottenham because they cannot finish outside the top four this season.
“Both managers know one way to play – going toe-to-toe – and they both back their players. I think we will see a different Man City team, they have got more in their squad to be able to shuffle the pack and I’m not sure Tottenham have got that luxury. It’s very important for both teams, hugely important. The Champions League has gone now for Man City, they will want to win this back-to-back Premier League, which they’re capable of doing and believe they will.”
