What is the position of Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League?
Manchester City is second on the Premier League with 83 points after 33 matches. Tottenham Hotspur is third with 67 points after the same number of matches.
What is the form of Manchester City in contrast to Tottenham Hotspurs?
It will certainly be a revenge mission for Manchester City when Tottenham Hotspur graces the Etihad Stadium in Saturday's early kick-off match. The Citizens come into the encounter on the back of a Champions League elimination suffered in midweek at the hands of the London club.
Pochettino's men have proved to be a thorn in the side of the Manchester club as the first leg win in the European competition's quarter-final tie was the current league holders' first defeat in 18 matches. Bar that result, Manchester City has won all of its last 10 matches in all competitions.
In the Premier League, the Etihad outfit ranks as the team with the best performance at home as they have registered 16 out of 17 wins and one defeat.
While that hints at a daunting task ahead for Tottenham, the Londoners will enter the clash with high belief as their away form has been quite remarkable as well. The White Lilies sit third on the list of teams with the most number of away wins in the Premiership with 11 wins and six defeats.
However, they may be required to put in a shift reminiscent of the one witnessed during last week's win in the Champions League with their form in recent matches coming under scrutiny. In their last 10 matches, Spur have managed just five wins, four defeats, and a draw.

"I think the game against Spurs will be just as intense as the other day.
"If you believe it doesn't hurt, you're wrong, but we have to live with that. We lost [the tie] but I was so proud. The performance we did was incredible.
"We are going to attack - it won't be easy because they are an incredible top team, but we will try.
"The title race for us is Tottenham at 12.30pm. What Liverpool do at Cardiff I cannot control." Mauricio

"We didn't sleep too much [on Wednesday night] but the happiness allows you to feel strong and with energy, and of course now we're thinking about the game on Saturday.
"We don't have time to enjoy and we need to forget the Champions League now and try to be ready for Saturday because it's going to be a battle.
