Charlie Nicholas is tipping Manchester City to ease to a thumping 4-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at The Etihad in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime.

The Citizens are preparing to welcome Spurs to their home ground as they look to make it two wins from two in their first Premier League games of the campaign.

Manchester City secured a 5-0 win over West Ham United in their Premier League opener away from home last weekend as Pep Guardiola’s side ran riot away from home.

Tottenham, meanwhile, beat Aston Villa 3-1 in front of their home fans to get their campaign off to a positive start under Maurizio Pochettino.

And former Arsenal star Nicholas is tipping Manchester City to claim all three points and seal a convincing win when they take on Spurs in front of their home fans on Saturday lunchtime.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “It’s a cracking game again. I loved the Manchester United game against Chelsea, the way the game unfolded and how expansive it was. This is one of those games.

“There is a spark in my brain that questions where Mauricio Pochettino thinks he is? It is a judgement of where his team is at. What team will Pep Guardiola pick?

“Christian Eriksen came off the bench last week and helped, but do they change the system or format? I think there are issues at Tottenham, but it is not the manager’s making.

“It’s between the players and owners, but I see problems here for Tottenham. Man City, with Sterling having scored a hat-trick away from home, are mind-blowing.”

Manchester City are aiming to secure the Premier League title for the third season running this term after their first two triumph under Guardiola.

The Citizens won the Premier League last season by a single point as they managed to keep ahead of Liverpool FC and retain the trophy.
