Manchester City midfielder (and brain), David Silva, in action for his team.  Sporting the home light blue colours.  Year is 2017. Manchester City, which appears that it will run away with the English Premier League title this season, will look to extend their lead at the top of the table when they play host to Tottenham this weekend.

After defeating Man Utd last weekend, Man City is now a full 11 points ahead of the competition in the English Premier League. Given their level of talent, this seems like it is an insurmountable lead. While teams like Manchester Uted and Chelsea certainly have strong squads, there are no match for the finely tuned machine that is Man City.

Tottenham, which currently sits 18 points back of Man City, will look to make up some ground this weekend. At this point, Tottenham can likely forget about a league title - instead, they are likely focusing on securing a Champions League spot, as they are currently sitting in a three-way tie for fourth.

Man City will be at home on Saturday, which will make Tottenham's task even harder.

Man City has been nearly perfect at home so far this season, notching a total of 22 points over 8 matches. Tottenham, on the other hand, has been respectable on the road, gathering a total of 13 points in 8 games.

Man City's offensive attack has been particularly potent at home so far this year, as they have scored 28 times over 8 matches.

Tottenham will have the nearly impossible task of beating Man City on the road, which no team has been able to do so far this season.
