Sports News of Saturday, 16 December 2017
Hello good afternoon and welcome to another day of English Premier League football. The Premiership enters Match Day 17 this weekend and at 15:00 GMT there are five games to look forward to.
The big game for the day is at 17:30 GMT, when Manchester City welcome Tottenham Hotspurs to the Etihad stadium.
Tottenham are the latest side facing the unenviable task of attempting to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on high-flying Manchester City.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s side have prevailed in such tasks.
Last season they won 2-0 against Pep Guardiola’s side who, until then, had won all six of their opening league matches.
It would also be Spurs who would end Chelsea’s 13-match winning streak by a victory of the same scoreline.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last four matches with City, including the fightback from 2-0 down to draw at the Etihad last season. So can they stop the marauding City side? Only time will tell.
Other games to keep an eye on at 15:00 GMT are,
Chelsea vs Southampton
Arsenal vs Newcastle United
Brighton & Hove Albion vs Burnley
Stoke City vs West Ham United
Watford vs Huddersfield Town
