Having just signed a two-year contract extension, Pep Guardiola will be hosted by old rival Jose Mourinho, in a clash which could shape the outcome of the season.
Tottenham, who sit second in the league, have the chance to take top spot with just a draw, with first placed Leicester playing on Sunday. However, Leicester travel to third placed, and current champions, Liverpool, which gives Spurs a huge chance to get out in front by the end of the game-week, especially if they can beat Man City. No easy task.
Having just pledged his future to the club, Pep Guardiola will be hoping to make a statement to the league, with his side currently 10th, although with a game in hand, he’ll want them to show that they are still strong contenders, despite the rocky start, managing only two wins in their last five league games.
The game this weekend also marks the start of a tough run of league fixtures for Spurs, who play Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Leicester in their next six games, and so will be hoping to gather some momentum into their tough period.
Having produced 14 goals in just the last four meetings between the two sides, and with the added spice of a Mourinho-Guardiola battle, the match looks certain to entertain.
