Man City vs Tottenham 17/12/2017
It might be worth to note that Tottenham ended Man City’s fine start of six straight wins last season. The 2-0 win at White Hart Lane also marked Pep Guardiola’s first ever EPL defeat.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last four matches with City, including the fightback from 2-0 down to draw at the Etihad in the return fixture.
Fast forward to today, and Guardiola’s side have won a record 15 EPL matches on the spin, bettering Tottenham’s own record-setting start in the 1960/61 season.
Spurs are stretched at the back with Toby Alderweireld injured and Davinson Sanchez serving the last of his three-match ban.
Eric Dier and partnering Vertonghen in the middle of the defence, while Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier will likely return at full back at the expense of Danny Rose and Serge Aurier.
Kyle Walker will make his first competitive appearance against Spurs since his transfer last summer.
He will play on the right-side of a back four that will once again be without captain Vincent Kompany and John Stones, as Eliaquim Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi form the central partnership. Fabian Delph is expected to keep his place at left back.
Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane are expected to start up front, with Gabriel Jesus on the bench.
