Manchester City’s unstoppable run faces another test

Premier League returns this weekend with nonstop action and all the drama. Manchester City broke the consecutive wins record during the mid week when they thrashed Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. The question now on everybody’s lips is: Who can stop Manchester City?

All eyes will be on Tottenham Hotspur who are headed to the Eithad Stadium on Saturday to face City, in clearly the game of the weekend, as the world watches to see if the billionaires are truly unbeatable.

City captain Vincent Kompany is unlikely to return to the League leaders’ starting line-up. The Belgium defender missed the midweek trip to Swansea with an unspecified muscle problem but the club are hopeful he can feature next week.

Former Spurs right-back Kyle Walker and winger Leroy Sane are set to return after being rested but defenders John Stones (hamstring) and Benjamin Mendy (knee) are still out.

Dele Alli is likely to be recalled for Tottenham’s crunch visit to Manchester City. Alli was rested for the win over Brighton in midweek and is expected to return but Davinson Sanchez remains suspended as he serves the last part of a three-match ban.

Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) both remain sidelined.

Other teams involved in fixtures this weekend include Chelsea who take on Southampton, Arsenal versus Newcastle, Manchester United away to West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool versus Bournemouth. Catch all the action this weekend LIVE and in HD on Supersport on DStv.
