It's squeaky bum time for...

Manchester City

How long can City sit atop the Premier League? Roberto Mancini's side have shown fallibility recently, going out of both cups before a humbling at Everton on Tuesday, allowing United to draw level on points. City could be leap-frogged by United should Vincent Kompany and Co flounder at home to Fulham tonight and United triumph at Chelsea tomorrow. Fans might expect City to prevail but Fulham are unbeaten in their last four league visits to City and Martin Jol is unbeaten in seven top-flight meetings against them. With Clint Dempsey in stunning form, City should be wary of slipping up again.

Sandro's martial art

Football has been attracting bad headlines so it was a relief to see Sandro make fans smile again. Danny Rose filmed the midfielder practising martial arts in the Spurs' dressing room, amusing and bemusing team-mates in equal measure. Sandro appears intense in his wild kicks – sometimes on the spin – and finishes off by booting bottles off a table.
