Owen: This impressive streak will end in Tottenham clash v Manchester City
Former Liverpool and England striker Michael Owen has said that he is expecting Tottenham’s unbeaten streak against Manchester City to come to an end when the two sides face off on Saturday.
Spurs have not lost against City since May 2015, with three wins and a draw coming in their last four matches, including a 2-2 result when the two sides met back in January of this year.
However, with Pep Guardiola’s men in imperious form this season, having not tasted defeat in any of their 17 top flight games so far, Owen says that the Lilywhites’ impressive run could well come to an end at the Etihad Stadium, despite expecting Mauricio Pochettino’s men to grab a goal.
Predicting a 3-1 defeat for Spurs, Owen wrote on his blog for Metro: “Manchester City are without a win in their last four Premier League games against Spurs and, surprisingly perhaps, the north London outfit have won more away games against City (10) than they have at any other Premier League club.
“That said City have been irresistible so far this season and their record-breaking 15 successive Premier League wins shows no sign of stopping.
“Pep Guardiola won 19 Bundesliga games in a row between October 2013 and March 2014 when in charge of Bayern Munich and I would expect him to be challenging his City side to break that extraordinary record.

“Spurs could easily score at the Etihad but I expect City to score more.”
City broke the Football League record for most successive wins on Wednesday, with their 4-0 thrashing of Swansea City their 15th consecutive victory.
Their form has earned them an 11 point gap at the top of the table, while they are already 18 points off Spurs, who are sitting in fourth place after a recent wobble in form.
However they come into the clash off the back of two successive wins, the 5-1 humiliation of Stoke City followed by a 2-0 win over Brighton in midweek.
