The focus in the Premier League today is on the title race with four of the top six in action.

The pick of the ties is the evening game where an in-form Tottenham side travel to the Etihad to face struggling Manchester City.

City were hammered 4-0 by Everton last time out, while Spurs won their seventh straight game with a comfortable win over West Brom.

Kick off is at 5.30.

Five more games get underway at 3.

Liverpool could finally have Joel Matip back in their squad.

He’s now available for selection again after FIFA gave him clearance to play.

The Cameroon defender declined a call-up for this month’s Africa Cup of Nations.

Saido Berahino won’t be in the Stoke squad to face Manchester United after joining from West Brom.

The striker agreed a five-and-a-half-year contract with the club after they had a bid worth an initial 12-million pounds accepted.

There’s some confusion over Gerard Deulofeu’s loan move from Everton to AC Milan.
