Suffering a shock defeat over bottom side Sunderland in their previous league game giving a lot of pressure for Manchester City ahead of their big game clash against Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday, November 23 at Etihad Stadium. Sitting at eight position for this current moment is obviously not something that was expected from Manuel Pellegrini's men, even in such an early stage as they have been losing several points against weaker teams.
Grabbing maximum points might not be easy though for City as Spurs are also keen on showcasing their quality and get themselves into that top four seat. This encounter will be another showcase for both sides in proving their quality in competing for title this season, especially for the home side as they are being strongly tipped to finish the season as league winner.
City finally showcasing that they are still strong contender for this season's title after demolishing Spurs on that weekend battle. Jesus Navas opened the scoring after just one minute, triggering a rout as an own goal arriving from Sandro, followed by Sergio Aguero's double, Alvaro Negredo's strike and another effort from Navas right at the end.
