Manchester City vs Tottenham: Confirmed Lineups

GW12 Preview: Manchester City’s Negredo to outshine his partner in Spurs clash

An inconsistent Tottenham side will have to deal with Manchester City’s in-form forward on Sunday, and we’re not talking about Sergio Aguero.

Six goals in his last four Etihad Stadium appearances in all competitions mark Alvaro Negredo(£9.1m) out as the man Spurs have to stop in the contest, and at £2.8m cheaper than Argentina’s Aguero (£11.9m), he offers both value and quality ahead of a meeting with the goal-shy visitors.

Goals against Bayern Munich, Everton, Norwich and a hat-trick against CSKA Moscow in City’s last four home matches have seen supporters take the Spanish forward to their hearts, and as the spearhead of Manuel Pellegrini’s side he has dovetailed excellently with the headline-hogging Aguero.

This weekend it could pay to side with the former Sevilla man over the Premier League’s joint-top scorer though, with Negredo possessing the ability to thrive on the service of the likes of Yaya Toure (£9.6m) and Samir Nasri (£8.1m) as City bid to keep alive their 100% home league record this season.

The meeting between City and Spurs is one of the three contests this weekend that pit six of the top eight against each other, with a mouthwatering Merseyside derby kicking off the action yesterday  and closely followed by Arsenal’s clash with surprise package Southampton resulting in a 3 point home win for the Gunners.
