Man City vs Tottenham is one of the most intriguing fixtures of any Premier League season, not least because Spurs boast an impressive recent record against Pep Guardiola's trophy hoarders — and you can watch it live today from anywhere with a VPN.
The teams are and Man City starts with a strong XI that includes Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez, Berardo Silva, Rodri and Jeremy Doku. Jack Grealish is again on the bench, as is John Stones who is still recovering from injury. Tottenham, meanwhile, still has no fit center-backs available, meaning Ben Davies and Emerson Royal will again start at the heart of the back four. Son Heung min will continue up front, supported by Brennan Johnson, Dejan Kulusevski and Bryan Gil. Yves Bissouma and Giovai Lo Celso get the nod again in central midfield. Richarlison is on the bench.
It tells you everything about Man City's Premier League dominance in winning five of the last six titles that when two draws in a row represents something of a mini-crisis. The control that head coach Pep Guardiola demands from his side has been absent in a chaotic 4-4 game with Chelsea and last weekend's 1-1 draw with title rivals Liverpool, the latter ending City's 23-game winning run at home in 2023. With John Stones still struggling for fitness, Guardiola will look to Rodri and Bernardo Silva to establish ownership of the ball and deliver the constant stream of possession for striker Erling Haaland to do what he does best.
If there's a team that knows how to stop the City juggernaut, it's Spurs, winning five of the last seven Premier League meetings between the sides. Harry Kane scored the only goal in February's most recent contest between the sides, but has since left for Bayern Munich. In their former star's absence, though, Tottenham have largely excelled. New manager Ange Postecoglou has established an attractive unit that dropped just four points from Spurs' first 10 games, but injuries to James Maddison, Micky van de Ven and now Rodrigo Bentancur have bitten during three straight defeats.
Man City vs Tottenham is set to be another fascinating contest, so make sure you don’t miss any of today's EPL action by checking out our full how to watch Premier League live streams hub.
