Manchester City take on Tottenham in the Premier League on Monday at Wembley Stadium.

City will move into first place in the league table with a win over Spurs, meanwhile, the home side would leapfrog the visitors and move into joint second place with Chelsea if they record a victory.

Tottenham will face their third game against a ‘big six’ side this season when they take on the Citizens.

Spurs beat Manchester United 3-1 but lost 2-1 to Liverpool.

Midfielder of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan is unlikely to start for City but is nearing a return from his hamstring problem.

Gundogan revealed his thoughts on the current City side in the leadup to Tottenham clash.

Speaking to ESPN he said: “I don’t want to sound arrogant or something, I just want to be honest, I think in that team that we are playing right now, it’s very difficult to have a bad game, as a player.

“We have a system and the teammates on the pitch they are so close to you, you get involved in so much positive and good things.

“It’s quite difficult and tough and with Pep [Guardiola] pushing you, it’s difficult to have a bad game. But you can have bad passes or bad challenges but to have a bad game a lot has to happen to have these kind of games.”

The reigning Premier League champions have yet to lose a game in the league this season.

Gundogan has started six of the Citizens nine Premier League and has one goal and two assists.

The 27-year-old has made a total of 10 appearances in all competitions for City this term.
