> Last season’s title rivals Spurs, Leicester City to resume battle
shadow of the side that relentlessly pursued wins against the odds last season.
When the two sides last met in league at White Hart Lane in January, Leicester’s 10 victory, courtesy of Robert Huth’s late header, was seen as a sign that Ranieri’s side had the mettle and stomach for a title challenge.
Having lost all four of their away league games this season, another defeat would be taken as further proof of their demise since they lifted the trophy in May. With only one point separating the top five teams, a number of sides will have their eye on climbing to the summit over the weekend. Manchester City are currently heading the pack, courtesy of a better goal difference over Arsenal and Liverpool.
Yet Pep Guardiola’s side visit West Bromwich Albion tomorrow looking to win their first match in seven in all competitions after they were knocked out of the League Cup by rivals Manchester United 1-0 yesterday.
United manager Jose Mourinho shrugged off a mini-crisis with yesterday’s victory and will now look to win his first league match in four and rebound from last weekend’s dismal 4-0 defeat at Chelsea when they host Burnley tomorrow.
Arsenal, who are unbeaten since the opening weekend of the season, visit Sunderland tomorrow, when Liverpool, who have also not tasted defeat since August, play at Crystal Palace. – Reuters
