Joe Cole fancies Jose Mourinho to bring Manchester City’s epic winning run to an end and guide his Tottenham side to a point this weekend.

City have won their last 15 matches in all competitions and lost just once since 27 September.

Pep Guardiola’s team have been absolutely flying and are now clear at the top of the Premier League table and remain on course in the FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League as well.

However, their last defeat came against Tottenham, when they were beaten 2-0 in the Premier League in November and Cole thinks Spurs can pinch some points from them again.

City host Tottenham on Saturday afternoon and Cole can see a draw at the Etihad as the two teams prepare to meet in the League Cup final in April.

‘I’m going to go draw, dress rehearsal for the cup final, I still fancy Jose can get a draw up there, so I’m going to go draw,’ Cole told All to Play For from Joe and Coral.

One of the most appealing contests of the weekend sees Arsenal host Leeds on Sunday afternoon with the Yorkshire club 10th in the table, one place and one point ahead of the Gunners.

Cole finds Leeds hard to predict and has plumped for the Gunners in this one, despite Mikel Arteta’s men losing their last two Premier League matches against Aston Villa and Wolves.

‘Leeds is the hardest team to back, you just don’t know what you’re going to get,’ said Cole. ‘I’m going to go Arsenal.’

Third meets fourth in a big game on Saturday afternoon as Leicester City host Liverpool as the champions are looking to leapfrog the Foxes with a victory.

Cole reckons they will get what they want at the King Power, backing Jurgen Klopp’s side, although he didn’t go into any detail as to why.

Asked to name his pick for the game, the former England star just said: ‘Liverpool.’
