Tottenham Hotspur better than Manchester City, says – EPL News 
Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Luka Modric, has stated that his side has more quality than high spending Manchester City.
Spurs are currently placed fifth in the English Premier League table, having accumulated 49 points from 29 fixtures in the 2010/11 season. The London based club are challenging Manchester City for the fourth spot in the table; the last of UEFA Champions
League qualification slots.
Manchester City have a four-point advantage over Spurs after having collected 53 points from 30 games. However, Modric is adamant that his side has what it takes to overturn the deficit.
Last season, the two teams were neck and neck in their battle for the Champions League spot, and a decisive 1-0 victory for Spurs over City enabled them to win a berth in Europe’s Premier club competition.
It can be a similar story this time around as Spurs have a crucial tie against City on 10th May, 2011. Modric and his team will be looking to overhaul City and repeat their heroics from last season.  
The Croatian said, "It is going to be tougher than last year but I think we have a lot of quality in the team and can do it again. It is going to be hard but I think we are better than them and we still have one game against them. I think that game will
again be decisive for who finishes fourth and fifth."
Spurs also have a chance to make up ground as they have a game in hand; a Home fixture against bitter rivals Arsenal on 20th April, 2011. Earlier in the season, Spurs won the derby bragging rights when they defeated the Gunners 3-2 in their own
backyard, and Modric believes that that his side can repeat their heroics.
He said, “We have already beaten them at home and I don't see any reason why we cannot beat them again, especially in front of our fans where we are playing really well. It is going to be a good game for us and for everyone”.
Harry Redknapp’s men, at present, are in the quarter-finals of the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League where they face Spanish giants Real Madrid over two legs.
