Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspur in a top of the table encounter at the Etihad, hoping to leapfrog the London outfit who sit a point above the Manchester outfit in second place.

City will have the services of talisman Vincent Kompany back, with David Silva also expected to be fit for the important fixture. Spurs, on the other hand, have every key player fit and ready to go except defender Jan Verthongen, and will hope to send a message to the rest of the title challengers about them being a serious contender with a good display at the Etihad.
