Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspurs (Spurs) takes place on Sunday in the English Premier League with City looking to keep up the pressure on rivals Manchester United at the top of the table. The game is scheduled to start at 8.30 a.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link below.
City are currently third in the table with 22 points from their opening 10 games. United won on Saturday to extend their lead at the top of the table. Man Utd are now 27 points from 11 games.
It would have been frustrating viewing for City's fans on Saturday, having watched Aston Villa go 2-0 up against Manchester United the City fans must have been cheering. However, a Javier Hernandez inspired comeback saw United claim a 3-2 win in the final minutes.
A win today would close that gap between the two Manchester teams to just 2 points again. However, Spurs are no pushovers and City will have their work cut out.
City should have David Silva back following a month out with an injured hamstring. Micah Richards, Jack Rodwell and James Milner are all out though.
For Spurs Mousa Dembele, Scott Parker, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul are all out injured and will not feature for Tottenham.
Despite only being in third place City are the only unbeaten side left in the English Premier League at the moment. However, they are a team with two faces right now - a domestic face that is willing to compete with the best for the title, and a European Champions League face that seems limp and performs recklessly against opposition teams.
That poor European form has not yet seemed to have knocked the players confidence when it comes to domestic football, but it must be concerning behind the scenes.
This should be an exciting and entertaining game. The corresponding fixtures between these two teams last season saw 11 goals scored in their two matches. City won 5-1 at White Hart Lane in London, and also won 3-2 in Manchester.
Spurs have lost their last two visits to Manchester City, although they had won seven of their previous nine visits prior to that.
