City v Spurs Preview | A Crossroads

[caption id="attachment_8632" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Dzeko against Tottenham"][/caption] I know that earlier this season Man City went to White Hart Lane and won 5-1 with 4 goals from Edin Dzeko. I know there are probably a whole slew of statistics that can put this match-up in to context, probably that even suggest City will come away with a big win.

Man City defensive stats | In depth Analysis

There has been much written over the course of the 2011/12 season so far as to the attacking potency of Manchester City.

Many months, many column inches and many millions of pounds later we finally have the apology from Carlos Tevez; an apology deemed to be sufficient for Roberto Mancini to welcome him back (even if not quite with open arms) into the fold, stating that he ‘has no problem’ with Tevez.
