Manchester City need a result when they entertain an in-form Tottenham side at the Etihad on Saturday evening.
Manchester City were thrashed 4-0 away at Everton last time out and dropped to fifth in the division.
Despite dominating the first half, as soon as Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring there was only going to be one winner.
Spurs were on the right end of a 4-0 scoreline as they eased past West Brom.
Harry Kane scored a superb hat-trick, with only Jan Vertonghen’s injury the only negative on a superb day!

Fernandinho is still suspended for the hosts, meaning Pablo Zabaleta is likely to continue in a holding midfield role.
Gabriel Jesus has received international clearance and is likely to be on the bench here.
Vertonghen’s injury means Ben Davies is likely to deputise from in the left central defensive role of Tottenham’s back three.
This is likely to be the only change, however Erik Lamela could be on the bench after two months out.

Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Bravo; Sagna, Otamendi, Stones, Kolarov; Toure, Zabaleta; De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling; Aguero
