All eyes might be on Liverpool and Manchester because of the two horse nature of the Premier League title race but the also-rans from London could yet prove pivotal to the outcome.
Spurs have already done their bit.
Different competition, of course, but their deserved first leg Champions League victory will have shaken Pep Guardiola and his team, not just because these serial winners are so unaccustomed to finding themselves behind at the final whistle but also because it was a rare occasion when the intensity of Tottenham’s approach meant City were almost unrecognisable at times as the side which regularly slices and dices the opposition.
London can have an even more direct say tomorrow, and not just at Anfield, with Manchester City having to travel to Crystal Palace in the early game, the result of which will be known before Liverpool kick off against Chelsea.
