Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City: 5 Players to Watch on Either Side

This Sunday, at 1:30pm local time, Tottenham Hotspur are set to play their first home match of the Premier League season, taking the field against an impressive Manchester squad for the second week in a row.

Manchester City will be entering the match as the league's leading club in overall goals scored for the new campaign, while Tottenham comes in still looking for their first.

Spurs will certainly have their hands full trying to slow down City's attacking momentum, but in the past they've demonstrated a fairly competent ability to compete against the league's top sides and impress in their own offensive half as well.

They just haven't managed to achieve that yet this year.

As Manchester City look to continue their undefeated start to the season and add still more goals to their club tally, Tottenham will be seeking a spark to ignite their own attacking fire and rise to a position in the top half of the table that they feel they so thoroughly deserve.

As it all goes down for these two sides on Sunday afternoon, here are five players for each side that are worth paying close attention to, as their performances will be hugely important in deciding which club leaves White Hart Lane adding points to the standings.
