LONDON: Manchester City could take revenge on Tottenham’s Jose Mourinho squad early Sunday morning as Liverpool face a difficult visit to Leicester after a week-long break.
City beat Liverpool 4-1 at Anfield last weekend to open a five-point gap over second-placed Manchester United in the league standings as well as having one game in hand.
Pep Guardiola’s squad has not lost in 22 games involving all tournaments since facing Tottenham in November.
Mourinho’s victory that day put them on the league standings and eight points ahead of City.
But now a total of 22 points have changed hands with Spurs falling to eighth place.
They once met for the best title with Barcelona and Real Madrid, with the 25th clash between Guardiola and Mourinho present at a time when their respective destinations were clearly different.
Mourinho is currently under pressure after four defeats in five games while Guardiola is aiming for four trophies.
City also set a new record in England with 15 consecutive major league wins after advancing to the FA Cup quarter-finals yesterday.
