Manchester City vs Tottenham: How to watch live, stream link, team news

0 Comments

Manchester City host Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday in a massive clash between the reigning champions and a title hopeful.

STREAM LIVE MANCHESTER CITY v TOTTENHAM

Pep Guardiola’s side sit second in the Premier League table after four wins and two draws from their opening six games of the season. They’ve scored 20 goals so far as Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne continue to demolish defenses.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham sit in third place, also on 14 points, and they’ve had a pretty relaxed start to the new season. In a word: efficient. Spurs have yet to hit top gear but their new signings are chipping in with goals and assists and Harry Kane is starting to run the show.

Key storylines

City have looked very good so far this season but defensively they have shown a few cracks as draws away at Newcastle and Aston Villa have shown. Going forward Erling Haaland has scored 10 goals in his first six PL games, including back-to-back hat tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest in his last two home games. Haaland’s battle with Cristian Romero will be fascinating, while City have so many other attacking weapons who can hurt Spurs.

That said, Spurs have been very good against Manchester City in recent seasons as they won both encounters last season (including a stunning 3-2 win at City) and Harry Kane usually shows up against the club who tried to buy him. Conte’s side have been defensively solid but did struggle against Chelsea in the biggest test they’ve faced so far this season. This is another step up and it will be intriguing to see how deep they defend as they’ll look to hit City on the counter. A win here and Spurs could become genuine title contenders…


In-form players to keep an eye on

Erling Haaland and Kevin de Bruyne have been in majestic form and it’s tough to look past that duo as the danger men. Also, Phil Foden looked back to his best in City’s demolition of Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek.

Richarlison scored twice on his Champions League debut to grab Spurs a 2-0 win against Marseille and he is pushing hard for a starting spot given his recent impressive cameos. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is having a fine season in midfield.

Aymeric Laporte remains out injured, while Kyle Walker and John Stones continue to work their way back to full fitness. It will be intriguing to see if new center back Manuel Akanji starts.

Tottenham team news, injuries, lineup options

Lucas Moura is Spurs’ only injury concern as he has just returned to training. Conte has plenty of options in defense and attack as Dejan Kulusevski and Ben Davies may come back in to the starting lineup.

Fulham and Newcastle United look set to entertain when Aleksandar Mitrovic entertains his old mates for a Saturday morning tilt at Craven Cottage on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

STREAM LIVE FULHAM vs NEWCASTLE

The Magpies are injury-hit but Eddie Howe has enjoyed pushing for offense and has largely found chances regardless of who’s been on the field, while Marco Silva’s Cottagers are healthy and have been on the front foot as often as possible during their Premier League return.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Fulham vs Newcastle.

Key storylines & star players

Somewhere in the multiverse, Mitrovic’s tied for the Golden Boot lead because Erling Haaland is an actual superhero. The Fulham man has six goals to tie Harry Kane five behind Man City’s prolific Norwegian hitman. Kenny Tete’s assisted three of those goals, and Tete’s also top six in tackles. Teammate Joao Palhinha is first.

Newcastle, meanwhile, is dealing with a ridiculous amount of injuries to key players, as Bruno Guimares, Chris Wood, and Alexander Isak were both hurt on international break to join Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin as walking wounded attackers.

Liverpool plays its first Premier League match in 25 days when high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion debut a new manager as visitors at Anfield on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET online via Peacock Premium).

Roberto De Zerbi takes the wheel for the Seagulls following Graham Potter’s move to Chelsea, and Brighton will be staging its first match since a 5-2 demolition of Leicester City on Sept. 4.

STREAM LIVE LIVERPOOL vs BRIGHTON

That was one day after Liverpool drew Everton 0-0 at Goodison Park in a Merseyside derby that came on the heels of back-to-back wins for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Liverpool’s currently four points back of fourth-place Brighton; Both clubs have played six matches, one fewer than 14 other Premier League sides.

Key storylines & star players

Is Liverpool ready to turn chances into goals at a more familiar rate? The Reds’ expected goal total for this season is close to leaders Manchester City and Arsenal but its actual goal production is fifth and somewhat-inflated by their nine-goal beatdown of Bournemouth previously this season.

Brighton, meanwhile, has to show that it’s getting a handle on life after Graham Potter, as De Zerbi’s credentials say things might not look too different. The former Sassuolo and Shakhtar Donetsk boss craves possession in his teams and delivers chances as a boss in the manner you’d expect from a former attacking midfielder.

Chelsea looks to keep up its top-four pace when it visits Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday (watch live, 10am ET on USA Network and online via NBCSports.com).

The match is Graham Potter’s first in the Premier League since leaving Brighton for new digs in London. The Blues drew Salzburg in 1-1 in Potter’s first match with Chelsea, and many eyes will be trained on his Starting XI.

STREAM LIVE CRYSTAL PALACE vs CHELSEA

Palace is winless in its last three Premier League matches including back-to-back draws versus Brentford and Newcastle. Patrick Vieira would love to make that a three-match unbeaten run with a good result Saturday.

Key storylines & star players

What will Graham Potter’s first Premier League XI look like come Saturday? Kepa Arrizabalaga could be in goal if Edouard Mendy is not ready, but will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remain a starter? Are Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic locks for the midfield? Lots to monitor as Christian Pulisic, Conor Gallagher, Ben Chilwell, and Hakim Ziyech will hope to have made a major impression.

Palace has played well against the “Big Six” this year, leading Man City 2-0 before an Erling Haaland hat trick, drawing Liverpool, and losing on Opening Day vs Arsenal while holding 57% of the ball and matching the Gunners in shots and shots on target. A win over the Blues sure would do the trick.
