    No early match thread for a big game? :sneaky:

    Team News

    Doubtful Livermore (ankle), Sandro (calf)
    Injured Dembélé (thigh, 17 Nov), Parker (achilles, 17 Nov), Assou-Ekotto (knee, 24 Nov), Kaboul (knee, Jan)

    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.

    I'm really starting to dislike Man Shitty. I think it will take some sort of miracle to get a win, given all the quality players out for this one.

    Adebayor is the first name on the team sheet for me. A bit harsh on Defoe, but Maribor aren't exactly on Man City's level.

    We're gonna lose, right? Especially if Sandro is not fit. I fear Defoe is first on the teamsheet for AVB and we'll never field 2 strikers away to a strong side.

    Last year's game was a choker. No Ledley to give away silly penalties now though, eh? :):(

    Not exactly sold on starting the game with a 4-4-2 against City. If the game is close at around 60 minutes, then AVB should think about it.

    Well I was wrong. Ade up top, and Sandro starts as well. Setting the DVR now, watching later. Going to church to pray for a win, lol

    Don't know if Caulker put a lot of pace behind it or Hart spilled it. Either way...

    1-0 Spurs!!

    Gallas almost cost us a penalty there, if not for the brilliant refereering of Michael Oliver.

    It's not Phil Dowd, it's youngest ref in the Premier League Michael Oliver.

    Changed it after I realised my mistake.

    Ade vs. Zabaleta is even more interesting to watch than the game. A younger Ade would've gotten himself a yellow for a retaliating but a more mature Ade draws Zabeleta into a yellow.

    It's really getting heated down there. Now it's Lennon and Kolarov getting into it.
