Former Premier League midfielder Robbie Savage has backed Tottenham to pick up all three points in a thrilling encounter against Manchester City on Saturday.

The north London side are currently preparing to travel to the Etihad Stadium for the weekend encounter.

It will be the second time that the two sides have faced each other this campaign, having previously met in October at White Hart Lane.

An own goal from Aleksandar Kolarov alongside a Dele Alli strike ensured all three points remained at home and BT pundit Savage has tipped the same outcome.

The outspoken former Wales international also predicted on his personal Twitter account that City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo would save a penalty with both teams scoring in an entertaining clash.

Tottenham have a poor recent record against City in Manchester, winning one and losing five of their previous six meetings.

However, with seven victories from their last seven matches in all competitions Spurs will be eager to keep their impressive run going.

Additionally, with seven points separating Mauricio Pochettino’s side from league leaders Chelsea they will be aware that they can’t afford to drop many more points.

But, Pep Guardiola’s side are coming off the back of a 4-0 thumping suffered at the hands of Everton and they will be looking for a positive response.
