English Premier League: Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Preview
Manchester City kicked off the English Premier League 2016-17 in thebest way possible. With the passage of time, they started losing their shape and suddenly looking out of the title race. It can be stated that they are out of the championship race because they are currently 10 points behind league leaders Chelsea. For Manchester City to win the league, Chelsea need to lose at least four matches, and City need to win all those matches, which seems an improbability because in the 21 matches that have been played they have lost only 3. So for Chelsea to lose 4 matches in the remaining 17, something drastically bad needs to happen. Otherwise, it could well be over for Manchester City this season. So the upcoming home encounter against Tottenham Hotspur is a crucial one for Pep Guardiola and his boys because they simply cannot afford to lose out on yet another match for that will further worsen the situation.
On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur are in a much better position and are looking good to becoming the potential contender for the English Premier League 2016-17 title. They are currently sitting at the second spot on the league table and are 7 points behind Chelsea. A win in the upcoming Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur encounter will see them keeping up the pressure on Chelsea. Also, that will put some real pressure on Liverpool as well who are currently placed at the third spot on the table with thesame number of points, only to be placed below Spurs due to a lower goal difference.
In the first encounter this season, Tottenham Hotspur got better of the Blue half of Manchester with a 2-0 scoreline. Alexander Kolarov scored an own goal while Delle Alli doubled the lead later on to inflict the first defeat of the season on Pep Guardiola’s men. Manchester City will be eager to take revenge for that defeat, but it will be really difficult a task for them if we go by the current form. Manchester City slumped to a shocking 4-0 defeat at Goodison Park last week while Tottenham Hotspur thumped West Bromwich Albion 4-0 on their home soil. Harry Kane scored a hat-trick and showed signs of reaching his peak just at the right time. So it will be really interesting to see how Manchester City defence which has failed to impress this season cope up with the pressure from the Tottenham Hotspur.
English Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City Team News
Both teams have some problems regarding the fitness issue of the players. Manchester City will be without the service of Ilkay Gundogan who has suffered a serious injury and is not expected to take the field anytime soon. But other than that, Pep hasn’t got much to worry about as far as injuries in his team are concerned.
Mauricio Pochettino did not have much to worry about as he has managed to set up a stable playing eleven. However, Vertonghen will be missed badly by his team. He has been ruled out of action for 10 weeks which is quite a blow for the London club as Vertonghen has played a crucial role in the defence for Tottenham Hotspur in this season. But except that Pochettino will have the regular players fit to play in the upcoming Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur encounter in the English Premier League 2016-17.

Tottenham Hotspurs (probable line-up): Lloris, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele, Wanyama, Son, Eriksen, Delle Alli, and Harry Kane
English Premier League: Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Match Prediction
