Preview

Manchester City go into the match in fantastic form, having amassed a 15th successive victory on Wednesday night against Swansea City in the FA Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s men sit five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand on second-placed Manchester United.

Tottenham were the last side to defeat City, so the visitors take confidence from that result back in November when visit Manchester.

Jose Mourinho’s side currently sit eighth in the table, as they undergo some patchy stretches in the last couple of months.

A fantastic match is in store for us as Pep v Mourinho is a prime time battle and their squads are sure to entertain.

Which team will come out in front?

Team News

Pep Guardiola’s side will have several absences as Kevin De Bruyne, Nathan Ake and Fernandinho will all miss the game. Sergio Aguero will be a match time decision.

Prediction

Manchester City 3-0 Spurs
