Tottenham Hotspur player Mousa Dembélé has urged his teammates to remain focused during Monday night’s Premier League game against Manchester City.

The top of the table clash is set to define the fate of both teams this season according to Dembele.

Man City have continued from where they left off last year as they remain unbeaten going into the game at Wembley, having only dropped points against Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

And Moussa Dembele sees Monday’s clash as being of great importance for both sides.

“Obviously it’s an important game – everyone knows how important it is,” he told the club website.

“For us, we know it’s just as vital as any other game, so we need to be focused to try to get the win.

“Everyone will be very motivated to play against them and I think this could be an important game for both teams’ seasons.”

“I think we are doing well this season in the Premier League, but we have to finish games off much more quickly,” the Belgian international admitted.

“I think in the Premier League we are winning games and we need to continue in that spirit.”
