    Premier League: Tottenham v Manchester City LIVE!

    Probable Lineups:

    Tottenham Hotspur (4-4-2): Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Chiriches, Rose, Lennon, Sandro, Dembélé, Eriksen, Soldado, Adebayor

    Spurs can be buoyed by the news that Jan Vertonghen, Sandro, Kaboul, and Paulinho have returned to training after injury layoffs.  They will, however, be eased into the action rather than forced too early into the lineup… with the more defensive minded Sandro most likely to play and contain the Manchester City attack.

    Manchester City (4-4-2): Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Kompany, Kolarov, Navas, Yaya Touré, Fernandinho, Silva, Negredo, Aguero

    With Arsenal succumbing to a 2-2 draw at the hands of Southampton, a win for the Blue Half of Manchester will propel them to the top of the Premier League.  Having already scored six goals past Spurs in their 6-0 win over them this season, City will hold nothing back in their pursuit for the title.  Sergio Aguero is also in devastating form, scoring a hat-trick against Watford in the FA Cup.

    The past few weeks have seen the rebirth of Emmanuel Adebayor (who missed almost all of 2013), but in his last six games has grabbed five goals as well as 3 assists.  He will be absolutely gunning to score against his old club tonight.

    Some stats to get your head around…

    Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City: An Alternative Preview

    Tottenham have won seven and lost just one of their last 10 Barclays Premier League home games against Man City.

    Sergio Aguero has scored 13 goals in his last 12 Barclays Premier League apps and has four in four against Spurs.

    In the reverse fixture back in November, Spurs fired in 13 shots to Man City’s 15, but lost 0-6 at the Etihad Stadium.

    Manchester City have scored with 21.2% of their shots this season, the best chance conversion rate in the Barclays Premier League this season.

    If the league had started after Tim Sherwood took charge of Spurs, Manchester City would be top with 18 points and the Londoners would be second with 16.

    Spurs have conceded just one headed goal this season, fewer than any other team in the top flight.

    Edin Dzeko has scored in three of his last four Premier League appearances and has five in five against Tottenham – more than against any other club.

    Man City have won five and lost just one of the last seven Premier League games against Tottenham Hotspur.

    19 different Spurs players have been shown a yellow card this season, more than any other club in the top flight.

    With five goals, Emmanuel Adebayor has matched his Premier League goals total from last season (in seven games this season compared to 25 in 2012-13).
