Take a look at the latest on the form and team news of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs:
City have been a joy to watch in the league all season and deservedly sit atop the table after 25 matches. The Manchester club is on a 15–match unbeaten run in the league, notching 14 wins and 1 draw.
Their form has seen them establish a nine-point lead at the top of the table ahead of second-placed Liverpool. Manchester City has won 20 games all season, with 3 draws and 2 losses, scoring 61 goals and conceding 14. England winger Raheem Sterling is top of the log on their goalscorers’ list with 10 goals and 1 assist.
In Man City’s team news, Gabriel Jesus, Palmer Cole, Jack Grealish, and Steffen Zackary are injured, while Kyle Walker is out on suspension. Benjamin Mendy has been unavailable all season owing to his trial for sexual assault and rape.
Spurs have been bland all season, and while their fortunes have improved under Conte, they are still a long way off the Premier League elite. With 2 wins and 3 losses in their last 5 league games, they have fallen behind in the race to Europe.
They are now 8th on the league table, with 36 points, although they have 3 games in hand. They have won 11, drawn 3, and lost 8 games so far, scoring 28 goals and conceding another 29 in 22 matches. Heung Min Son remains their top scorer with 9 goals and 3 assists in the league.
For their team news, Spurs will be unable to call on the services of Eric Dier, Japhet Tanganga, and Oliver Skipp, who have picked up knocks and are out injured.
