Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 16th December 2017

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Manchester City moved closer to winning the league title by recording a 0-4 win at Swansea last time out but it was their 1-2 win at Old Trafford before that may have won them the title.

They face another tough task of beating Tottenham at home and a win here would mean they have successfully won over the top six teams except Everton.

They now have an 11 point advantage over their closest rivals in the league table and dropped just two points all season.

They lost to Tottenham last season but Guardiola will be hoping his players have learnt and can show an improved performance.

Manchester City have won two, lost three and drawn one of their last six matches against Tottenham.

Tottenham have edged closer to their first Premier League title over the past few seasons but that won’t be at the back of their mind when they visit City in this game as they are trailing their host by 17 points already.

They come into this game with some good form as they have won their last three games on the bounce however overall they have just two wins, two draws and the same number of loses in their last six matches.

Against the top teams, they don’t have the most impressive record as they have won over Liverpool while losing to Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal.

Although they started well away from home, they have now failed to win their last four away games losing three of those matches.
