go for the throat Spurs must look to kill off Man City in second leg, insists Redknapp
Md Tarikul Molla|April. 10, 2019
Harry Redknapp has urged Tottenham to push hard for an away goal in their second leg against Manchester City – rather than sit back and protect their one-goal advantage.
Spurs travel to the Etihad with a slender lead after last night’s 1-0 victory , in which they crucially stopped City from registering an away goal.
It means Spurs can give City a true mountain to climb by scoring at the Etihad, although they may be tempted to protect what they have.
Redknapp, the former Tottenham manager, told talkSPORT: “You look to get a goal. Don’t just sit back and hang on.
“If Tottenham can score then City have an uphill climb, so I make Tottenham slight favourites at the moment, even without Harry Kane.
“They’ll be dangerous on the break knowing that one goal makes it difficult for Man City. They’re in good shape.
“I’d be very happy if I was [Mauricio] Pochettino this morning.
