Preview

Manchester City are coming off a much needed break. That added with some positive results in the league makes for a great match.

Spurs meanwhile, have had a great season and sit second in the table.

We are sure to be in for a great game.

Team News

Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are back in training ahead of Manchester City’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur, but Nathan Ake and Fernandinho are not ready to return.

Aguero and Fernandinho have been missing since October after suffering injuries against West Ham United and Porto respectively, whilst Sterling and Ake both picked up problems during the international break.

Spurs are out four players as Erik Lamela, Harry Winks, Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty look set to miss.

Prediction

A classic Pep v Mou match that should feature a heavy possession based attack by City and Spurs looking to counter. I do think City’s quality in midfield will be the difference. Pep will know what Mourinho is thinking and that should help.

Manchester City 2-0 Spurs
