Manchester City will be hoping Wednesday’s slip against Celtic was just that as they head to London for a top of the table clash on Saturday. Just six games in and the Premier league is opening up with the Blue half of Manchester leading the pack.
They are yet to drop a single point so far in the league but Spurs only tail by four points with a win for them at White Hart Lane closing the gap to just one. The last time the two teams met Spurs won 2-1 as well as thrashing them 4-1 also in the same season but the Citizens had won eight of their previous nine against them.
Sergio Agüero is the striker on everyone’s lips so far this season with the Argentine in scintillating form. The 28-year-old has scored 28 goals in his last 27 Premier League appearances.
History could beckon for Pep Guardiola as he could become the first manager to win his first seven Premier League matches.
Spurs have quietly gone about their start to the season, winning four games and only dropping points to Everton and Liverpool. It remains to be seen whether their long journey to Moscow will affect Mauricio Pochettino’s men as Man City only had to make the relatively short journey to Glasgow.
Spurs are dealing with several injuries including their most recent transfer signing, Moussa Sissoko, who is suffering from concussion as well as Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele both having minor cramp. But there’s a chance one of Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose could feature as they step up their return from hamstring injuries.
City are also dealing with some injuries as Fabian Delph will not be returning due to a clash and the captain Vincent Company is once again in the physio room. Nolito serves the final game of a three-match ban.
