League leader Manchester City knows it can't let up Saturday when it hosts Tottenham in an English Premier League match at Etihad Stadium. Man City (20-3-2) has a nine-point lead on second-place Liverpool, but the Reds have a game in hand. The Cityzens will be striving for some separation or to maintain that lead, pending the outcome of the Liverpool-Norwich matchup Saturday. City crushed Sporting Lisbon 5-0 in a midweek Champions League match and beat Norwich 4-0 in its last league game last Saturday. It is unbeaten in its past 15 games and 19-1-1 in its last 21, but it lost 1-0 to Tottenham in the last meeting in August in London. Spurs (11-3-8) are eighth in the table, seven points behind fourth-place Manchester United, and have lost three straight league games.

Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. ET in Manchester, England.

Why you should back Manchester City

City has won six of its last seven home meetings with Spurs and is 10-1-1 at the Etihad this season. It has scored 34 goals at home while conceding six and faces a team that has just 28 goals in 22 games. Tottenham has scored just 10 of those on the road, tied for fourth-fewest road goals in the league, and has won just four of its 10 away from home. The Cityzens share the league lead in goals and are outright leaders in goals conceded (14), time of possession (68.1), shots (454) and shots on target (160). It is the far more talented team in this matchup.

Raheem Sterling had a hat trick in the win against Norwich to give him a team-high 10 this season. Phil Foden had the other to put him on six, and Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva both have seven. City doesn't have a clear striker, but midfielder Kevin De Bruyne (seven goals, two assists) orchestrates a devastating attack. The Belgian leads the league in creating 5.53 shots per 90 minutes, and he is third in key passes (53). Goalkeeper Ederson has three straight clean sheets in all competitions and leads the league with 11. He has a 75.9 save percentage (T-4). 

Why you should back Tottenham

Despite their struggles, Spurs remain very dangerous in attack. They are led by reigning Golden Boot winner Harry Kane, who scored 23 goals last season. He has five in league play this year but has 13 in all competitions. Son Heung-Min leads the team with nine league goals, one of those coming in the season-opening win against City. Lucas Moura, who has six goals in 31 matches in all competitions, also can cause problems for defenses. Spurs are in the middle of the league pack in shots (282) but lead the EPL in percentage of attempts on target (36.9).  

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris can stop the shots, and he is a veteran presence who is often the team captain. He has been with the team for 10 seasons, and he has a save percentage just under 72, posting clean sheets in 35 percent of his matches with the team. Rodrigo Bentancur, who had 15 assists in five seasons with Juventus, has joined a midfield that includes Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (two goals, one assist) and Harry Winks (one assist).
