Confirmed: Manchester City and Tottenham line-ups

Manchester City Stand

Here is how Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will line up this afternoon:

Manchester City welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad Stadium this weekend as both sides attempt to make up ground on Premier League leaders Leicester City.

Tottenham currently have 48 points while City are just a point behind with 13 matches remaining for both clubs.

City will be smarting after losing 3-1 to Leicester last time out and they will know that if they suffer a similar defeat to Spurs they could kiss their chances of reclaiming the title goodbye in what will be Manuel Pellegrini’s last season in charge.

City have a fine recent record against today’s opponents, defeating them in each of their last five home games, and they have netted 10 times in their last two matches against the North London club at the Etihad.

However Tottenham are a different prospect now and they will be quietly confident of returning to White Hart Lane with all three points.
