Manchester City will host Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday as both teams need to show more reaction after losing the weekend’s derby.
Pep Guardiola’s City lost 2-1 to Manchester United, causing controversy as they lost to Premier League leaders Arsenal. City have lost two games in a row in all competitions and just didn’t look like themselves after the World Cup break. Even Erling Haaland stopped scoring goals.
Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are really struggling for confidence and after losing at home to north London rivals Arsenal on Sunday they are well behind the top four and need a big result to restore faith. The Spurs continue to slow start games and get into difficult situations and have now lost five of their last nine Premier League matches.

Key storylines and players in good shape to keep an eye on
Erling Haaland has gone three games without a goal in all competitions while Kevin de Bruyne is doing his best to keep City and did a great job securing Jack Grealish’s goal at Manchester United. City look suspicious defensively as full-backs Kyle Walker and Joao Cancelo struggle to keep the wingers from falling behind. Rodri continues to study ballet.
Harry Kane is trying to do everything himself for Spurs, while Heungmin Son has lost form and Hugo Lloris has made a huge mistake against Arsenal in the NLD. At least Tottenham have Richarlison, Dejan Kuluszewski and Rodrigo Bentancur, and that will give them extra quality in the final third. Also worth noting: Tottenham have won four of their last five Premier League games against Manchester City.
Manchester City team news, injuries, squad options
John Stones and Ruben Diaz are back in training, but this game could come too soon. Jack Grealish and Julian Alvarez are eager to start, and don’t be surprised if Rico Lewis starts at right back.
Tottenham team news, injuries, squad options
Bentancur is back which is a huge plus and Lucas Moura is Tottenham’s only injury problem. With a full squad to choose from, will Antonio Conte choose a more attacking squad against City? Probably no. He will set them up to be dangerous on the counter.

Brighton won’t be too worried about winning three of four for Roberto De Zerbi after returning from the World Cup break. The only loss was a 4–2 loss to Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Key storylines and star players
New star defender Vought Face scored two own goals against his teammates in this four-game losing streak as only Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scored against Leicester. Jamie Vardy hasn’t scored since October, and James Maddison’s absence was evident in almost every game.
Brighton could have the stamina in the race for Europe as Leicester, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Fulham don’t have a clearly superior club against them in this series. Kaoru Mitoma continues to impress the Brightonians, who have so far resisted the urge to cash in on Moises Caicedo and others. Leandro Trossart, however, may soon leave the city, although De Zerbi has left the door open for reconciliation.
