Man City vs. Spurs / Sunday Football Open Thread

Just two matches today in the Premier League, both involving Manchester teams who will be looking to keep pace with Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool.

First, it's the big one with Manchester City hosting Tottenham Hotspur (13:30 GMT). That's ninth (ninth!) versus seventh as things stand, but with a win, City would move right up behind Chelsea into fourth, two points from the Blues and six points from the top. Should Spurs pull off the unlikely win, they too would move to fourth but just one point would separate them from us. It's tight at the top.

Then, Manchester United travel to Cardiff (16:00 GMT). The Welsh red-blue team isn't the toughest opposition by any means but they did take Manchester City's scalp earlier this year at home. Anything's possible.

Both City and United are in decent form nowadays, which is a shame because I did enjoy the slightly different look to the table with both of them stuck in mid-table.

Discuss.
