Manchester City are writing history in English football, with their FA Cup victory over Swansea City in midweek extending their winning run to 15 matches in all competitions.
It’s an all-time English football record for a top flight team – a simply remarkable feat – and Tottenham Hotspur appears set to be the Prem favourites’ next ‘victims’ as they look to extend their streak, as cited by Goal.
Usually, Jose Mourinho’s side would be stern opponents for Pep Guardiola’s team, however, after a recent poor run—that reached a new low with their 5-4 FA Cup final elimination by Everton—will they really be able to stop the Cityzens?
Kick-off time: Tottenham's away trip to Man City will get underway from 5.30 pm on Saturday, February 13.
The game will be played in Manchester at the Etihad Stadium.
There will be no fans in attendance because of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown, reported The Sun.
Live stream: Man City's home clash with Tottenham will be shown live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.
The game is going to be available for live streaming from the NOW TV or Sky Go apps.
You can also catch the action from a Smart TV, so long as it carries the NOW TV app.
Manchester City vs Tottenham Head-to-Head
The Premier League head-to-head record between the two sides is split evenly down the middle, with both sides getting two wins over the other in their last five meetings.
Tottenham, however, can boast a UEFA Champions League quarter-final triumph over Manchester City in the 2018-19 edition of the competition.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Team News and Facts
After their poor showing against Everton, Spurs will be desperate for any reasons for optimism ahead of their meeting with the league leaders.
Well, since Mourinho took over, they have at least won both of their fixtures against City, although skeptics may point out that both fixtures were in London, rather than at Eastlands.
In fact, City has a strong recent home record against Spurs, having won seven of their last 10 matches at home against the capital club—while losing only one!
Worryingly for the Lilywhites, they’ve won just one of their last six Prem away games, while you have to go way back to 1992 to find an away win for Spurs against a team-leading the table at the time.
In the intervening years, Tottenham have lost 21 and drawn three against the league leaders…things don’t bode well.
Manchester City: Pep Guardiola will be sweating on the fitness of star defender Ruben Dias, who missed Manchester City's FA Cup clash against Swansea with a stomach bug. Spanish midfielder Rodri is also a doubt for the game, having picked up a knock during the FA Cup tie, Sportskeeda cites.
Kevin De Bruyne and Nathan Ake are out of Saturday's clash with injury while Sergio Aguero is not yet matching fit.
Injured: Kevin De Bruyne, Nathan Ake, Sergio Aguero
Doubtful: Ruben Dias, Rodri
Tottenham: Jose Mourinho could be without both his starting full-backs. Sergio Reguilon picked up a muscle injury last month, while Serge Aurier injured his foot earlier this week.
Giovani Lo Celso is also out, as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury that occurred in December last year.
Injured: Sergio Reguilon, Giovani Lo Celso
Doubtful: Serge Aurier
Manchester City vs Tottenham Prediction
Manchester City Predicted XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, John Stones, Kyle Walker; Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva; Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez
Tottenham Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez, Matt Doherty; Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg; Heung-min Son, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura; Harry Kane
|The form is thrown out the window for matches like this. Both Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho will know what to expect when their sides come up against each other. That being said, one side is clearly better than the other at the moment. |
Manchester City is expected to comfortably come away with all three points.
Prediction: Manchester City 2-0 Tottenham
