The biggest match of the Premier League so far this season happens on Sunday, as the two top teams in the league face off in one of the best atmospheres in football. White Hart Lane will be going crazy for Tottenham Hotspur as they take on Manchester City, and two of the best managers in the world will clash for the first time in England.
Mauricio Pochettino and Pep Guardiola have been the best coaches in this early campaign, guiding their teams to unbeaten starts after six games thanks to beautiful, attacking, intense football that combines collective efforts with individual brilliance to creat two of the most perfectly run machines in Europe today.
Unfortunately, both teams will miss their best player on Sunday. Harry Kane is out with an ankle injury, while Kevin De Bruyne misses out through a muscle injury. A few other key pieces of both squads will or may not feature in this game, which is a shame but also part of football.
