STAT ATTACK

Head-to-head

There were 11 goals scored in the two meetings last season, City triumphing 5-1 at White Hart Lane before winning 3-2 at home. Tottenham had fought back from 2-0 down in the latter game before Mario Balotelli’s injury-time penalty gave City the spoils.

City are looking for a fourth consecutive win over Spurs.

Tottenham have lost their last two league visits to Manchester City, having won on seven of their previous nine trips.

Manchester City

City have fired in the most shots on target this season (65) and allowed their opponents the fewest (28).

Sergio Aguero has contributed five of the last nine league goals scored by City; three goals and two assists.

If selected, Carlos Tevez will be making his 100th Manchester City appearance, while Mario Balotelli could feature in the Premier League for the 50th time.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham are looking to seal top-flight victories at both Manchester clubs for the first time in the same season since 1959-60. They have already won 3-2 at Old Trafford this term.

A win for Tottenham would be their 300th of the Premier League era.

Last weekend’s defeat to Wigan was the first time in 10 league games that Spurs had failed to score this season. However, they have kept only one clean sheet this term.

If selected, William Gallas will be making his 300th Premier League start.

CaughtOffside prediction: 3-2. Just like last season!
