Manchester City vs Spurs – Match Preview – Premier League leaders Manchester City play host to Spurs this Saturday evening in a huge clash in the Premier League.
The hosts are absolutely flying at the top of the table, 11 points ahead of second place Manchester United. After their midweek victory over Swansea City, Pep Guardiola’s side have now broken the record for the most points achieved in Premier League history in the first 17 matches.
The visitors are looking to catch up with Chelsea in the league standings. They enter the fixture in decent form, having won their last three matches in all competitions.
Manchester City have been a delight to watch so far this season. Their ability on the ball is almost untouchable, with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva opening up defences with their eyes shut. They have already managed to score 52 goals in their 17 matches this season and have only conceded 11 in the process. They are a frightening opponent for any side to face; Sergio Aguero being the main fear as he has already bagged 10 goals with three assists. Spurs may have their work cut out at the Etihad Stadium.

Spurs are currently 4th in the Premier League having attained 31 points from 17 matches so far. They haven’t quite been the picture of consistency that they have shown in the previous seasons, with uncharacteristic slip-ups from time to time. However, their recent form suggests they are ready for battle on Saturday, with prolific talisman Harry Kane spearheading the Londoners attack. The Englishman has scored 12 goals with one assist this season as he is looking to defend his golden boot accolade.
