Last Time Out In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur won their first London derby of the season at West Ham thanks to an Erik Lamela header. In a first half that had been disrupted by breaks for injuries, both teams struggled to gather any sort of momentum. Erik Lamela’s deft touch from a Moussa Sissoko cross was enough to beat Lukasz Fabianski. West Ham were the more impressive side in the second half, and Tottenham have Hugo Lloris to thank for keeping them in the game. The Frenchman was on top form, repeatedly denying Marko Arnautovic after the break. On a different day, Arnautovic could have had 2 or 3 goals, but Lloris was equal to everything that was thrown at him.

Last Time Out In The Premier League
Manchester City remained top of the Premier League with a commanding 5-0 win against Burnley. 5 different goal scorers in the game showed just how strong City’s side is. The fact that they can score so many without relying on one player is a good sign that they can win the title again. Sergio Aguero got City off to a perfect start after 17 minutes, scoring past his old teammate Joe Hart. After the break, Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane helped themselves to a goal each. Pep Guardiola’s men have not been as convincing at times this season, but their win against Burnley was even more proof that they are favourites for the Premier League again.

Given that both teams repeatedly get to the latter stages of both domestic competitions, it’s surprising that Spurs and Man City have only met in the Premier League in the last 10 years. Manchester City’s recent English dominance mean it’s no surprise that they won both meetings between the 2 last year. A 4-1 home win was followed by a 3-1 win at Wembley as City romped to the title. Just 3 years ago, Spurs went on a 3 game winning run against City, proving that they can win on their day.
