Manchester City will be looking to bounce back in the Premier League race when they entertain Tottenham Hotspur at City of Manchester Stadium on Feb. 14 at 11.15 a.m. EST. But will they overcome an in-form Spurs? Click here to watch the live stream and find out!
After their humbling defeat to Leicester City, Manchester City have a home game against Tottenham Hotspur to contend with, and it won’t be easy. Spurs have been quietly going about their business winning games, as they’ve moved up the standings into second spot in the Premier League. They’re poised for a title challenge, so this promises to be a classic game.
Manchester City collapsed to fourth in the league after their title shootout against Leicester ended in a surprising 3-1 loss. They were never really truly at the races that day, so they will need to restore some pride and confidence by getting back to winning ways.
Tottenham has surprised pundits and fans with their consistency this term, and with four wins on the spin they are on a red-hot streak that’ll make them very difficult opposition for the Citizens, who really have to win this.
In Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling, Manchester City has two players that can win any game on their own with a sublime piece of skill. And with the unpredictable Yaya Toure in midfield they possess another match-winner capable of shaking this game up.
But this Tottenham team is built of stern stuff. With a strong spine in the middle of the team, dominated by the English core of Eric Dier and Dele Alli, they won’t be worried of the physical aspect of things. And with centre forward Harry Kane, they have a man capable of scoring against City’s much-maligned defense.
This game is too tough to call, but Spurs will miss the presence of injured Belgium defender Jan Vertonghen, who has formed a very good partnership with Toby Alderweireld that has seen them concede the least amount of goals in the Premier League.
