John Barnes is expecting to see Manchester City haul themselves back into the title race by beating Tottenham 2-1 at The Etihad on Sunday.

Spurs head up north in fine form and fresh from their 1-0 win over Watford at White Hart Lane last weekend.

The north London side have underlined their status as genuine contenders for the Premier League title this season with their consistent form in recent weeks.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men are currently second in the table and five points behind leaders Leicester City but are set for a stern test of their title credentials against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

And former Liverpool star Barnes is backing City to return to winning ways against Spurs on Sunday afternoon.

Barnes wrote in his blog for Titanbet: “Man City have to win after last weekend to keep pace with Leicester.

“Spurs are a decent side and are also in the title race, but I think home advantage will tell here. Goal-scorers – Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane.”
