Michael Owen has backed Manchester City to pick up all three points against Tottenham Hotspur away from home in London this weekend.

Tottenham will take on City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Spurs are second in the league table at the moment with 17 points from eight matches, a point behind leaders Leicester City.

Jose Mourinho’s side will head into the match against the Citizens on the back of a 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns in the league before the two-week international break.

Meanwhile, City currently find themselves 10th in the Premier League table with 12 points from seven matches.

Pep Guardiola’s team played out a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium in their last league match.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen believes that City will beat Tottenham on Saturday.

While predicting a 2-1 win for City, Owen said: “I’m really looking forward to this one. A lot of people fancy Tottenham to go well this season. They have cover in every position with players of international quality and in a season where squads of both depth and quality are most definitely needed, it could well work in Spurs favour.

“I’m still trying to work out Manchester City. I’ve watched Pep Guardiola in a few post-match interviews recently, and I can’t help but feel if there is something missing there.

“I’m not quite sure if that translates to the players but either way, I think this will be a tight game and a difficult one to call. However, if City can find their best form, I think they’ll be taking all three points back to Manchester.”
