We’ve got three fixtures to enjoy on this Sunday of Premier League action. After league-leaders Manchester United narrowly took three points yesterday at Villa Park, it’s time for the other two title contenders to respond. The Dugout Discussion opens for the juicy encounter at the Etihad Stadium between hosts Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. The team news is in, and is as follows…
Man City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Barry, Kolarov, Silva, Tevez, Aguero.
Spurs XI: Friedel, Walker, Gallas, Caulker, Vertonghen, Sandro, Huddlestone, Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Adebayor.
Roberto Mancini makes four changes from last weekends goalless draw against West Ham, which includes the return of David Silva after a month-long lay-off. As for the visitors, Jermain Defoe misses out despite a midweek hattrick in the Europa League, which means Emmanual Adebayor lines up against his former employers.
Following events in Manchester there will be another tasty battle, this time in the capital where Liverpool travel down to Chelsea. In and amongst, at 3p.m., Newcastle United welcome the visit West Ham United.
You can take in all the action in our Dugout Discussion chatroom, which is open and can be accessed right here.
