PREM: Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur preview


Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur preview

Tottenham can cut the gap on leaders Chelsea to just four points with a fourth successive victory over Manchester City on Saturday.


City were four points clear at the top of the Premier League after winning at Swansea on September 24 but now find themselves 10 points off Chelsea

This has led to Pep Guardiola coming in for some criticism following their 4-0 defeat at Everton last weekend.

That defeat was City's fourth in their last eight Premier League games.

However, a victory over Spurs would lift them level on points with Mauricio Pochettino's men, who are on a great run of form.

Tottenham have won their last six Premier League games, including beating Chelsea 2-0 earlier this month.

The last time Spurs won seven league games in a row was back in 1967.

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has been cleared to play after his £27m move from Palmeiras went through in time.

The 19-year-old signed for the club in the summer but remained at Palmeiras for the remainder of the Brazilian league season.

Fernando could return after injury but fellow midfielder Fernandinho remains suspended.

Tottenham duo Kevin Wimmer and Ben Davies will be on hand to deputise for ankle injury victim Jan Vertonghen.

Vertonghen's ankle problem is not as serious as first feared, with the Belgium central defender likely to be missing for six weeks.

Spurs have no new injury issues ahead of the Premier League trip to the Etihad Stadium.
