Former Tottenham midfielder Michael Brown says Spurs will have gained confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash with Manchester City after watching Pep Guardiola’s side lose three matches in a row.

City have already won the EFL Cup this season, and it would take a collapse of unrealistic proportions for them to miss out on the Premier League title at this stage.

But the champions-elect have lost their last three games, falling to defeat in both legs of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Liverpool either side of the Manchester derby.

The Premier League leaders head to Wembley to take on Tottenham on Saturday evening, and Brown thinks Spurs will believe they can beat City to strengthen their position in the top four.

“They are [vulnerable]. Tottenham are playing so well at the moment, and at Wembley they are a fantastic footballing side,” Brown told Sky Sports.

“They will be looking forward to the game. If they have ever been given confidence it is now after the week that Manchester City have had.

“You look at the Liverpool game. No goal given, Pep [Guardiola] has got sent off. It all adds to the confidence. Spurs will be looking at that, they’ll have the belief.

“It is going to be a really entertaining game.”

It’s very rare top sides lose three games in a row, so the chances of City falling to a fourth straight defeat are, in theory, unlikely.

That said, Tottenham have been excellent at Wembley all season and will take the game to City regardless of their obvious quality. It’s almost certain to be a thrilling contest.
