Champions Manchester City host Spurs in a game they must win to keep up the pressure on early title favourites Chelsea. The Sky Blues have endured a stuttering start to the season so far, but will be buoyed by the sheer number of goals they put past today’s opponents last season. City ran out 11-1 winners on aggregate in 2013/14, with the Lilywhites often having struggled against big name sides.
Tottenham themselves have been through a mixed start to the campaign, but have shown signs of positivity under Maurico Pochettino so far this term.
TEAM NEWS @MCFC: Hart, Clichy, Demichelis, Kompany (C), Sagna, Milner, Lampard, Fernando, Navas, Silva, Aguero
