The Premier League began last weekend with no major surprises apart from Manchester United’s 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea.
The highlight of Matchday two will undoubtedly be Manchester City’s fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
Both sides will head into the encounter filled with confidence after having won their opening games of the League comfortably. City demolished West Ham 5-0 last weekend while Spurs defeated Aston Villa 3-1.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side initially struggled to breakdown the Villains at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before a Tanguy Ndombele wonder-strike and a brace from Harry Kane allowed them to prevail 3-1.
City will go into the game as favourites due to their home advantage as well as the fact that they have more seasoned professionals within their side while Spurs are made up mainly of talented youngsters who have yet to reach the peak of their careers.
Spurs are however likely to deliver a competitive display against the side whom they eliminated during the Quarter-final stage of the Champions League last season.
City as a whole are a world-class unit but the one weakness which they have been showing recently is in defence with centre-back John Stones proving to be error prone while on duty for England as well as for his club. If the Englishman plays and does not up his game ahead of the clash against Spurs, the Lilywhites attack could frustrate Guardiola’s charges.
