Premier League Match Preview: Tottenham vs Manchester City

Tottenham’s hopes of progressing to the next round of the Champions League hang in the balance after they were held to a 2-2 draw with PSV in midweek. In the Premier League, they have won seven of nine games and are enjoying their best ever start to a top-flight campaign.

Manchester City top the table having too won seven of nine league matches so far, but are one of three teams yet to lose. Confidence will be high for Pep Guardiola’s side after their comfortable 3-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night.

Like with Spurs, the fixtures are starting to pile up for City, but with an extra day’s rest, they should capitalise with a repeat of last season’s 3-1 win at Wembley on the cards.
