Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspurs: Lineups and LIVE updates

Premier League Manchester City Tottenham

After being handed a major defeat by city rivals Manchester United, City’s title defense has taken a massive turn. Pep Guardiola’s men are seeded in the second spot behind Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, as the gap between the two clubs has risen up to 8 points.

The Premier League giants would look to return to their winning form against their North London rival. A win against Tottenham would help the Sky Blues restore their lost form and pride considering they have been knocked out of the EFL Cup and have fallen behind in the title race.

Although history lies in Spurs' favoravour, it's not the first time that a Pep Guardiola-managed team is facing adversity that can't be overturned. Man City has all the arsenal in their game that could help them defeat Conte's men, especially in their own backyard.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspurs have themselves had a rollercoaster ride in the Premier League this summer. The team has brushed aside their opponents on some days but has been handed major heartbreaks on others.

Although the recent history between the two teams would serve as the silver lining for the Italian manager. Conte has gotten his opposite manager’s number in the recently conducted encounters between the two teams.

And being just a spot away from the Champions League section, the Lillywhites will leave no stone unturned at the Etihad.
