Another weekend of mouth-watering football is on its way as Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspurs in the late fixture on Saturday while Manchester United and Liverpool will be in action as well against Stoke City and Swansea respectively.
Pep Guardiola will hope for a miracle against Tottenham as his players struggle for form and the wounds of the last fixture against Everton (4-0) are still afresh. A win at home will see the Sky Blues level with Spurs lagging only on goal difference.
While Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will make the equation more complex as they host Swansea City looking to close the gap with leaders Chelsea with a win. The outcome of Liverpool-Swansea game will spice things up in Man City-Spurs game for sure.
