Key statistics

  • Spurs have a 100 per cent record against Man City at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium, winning two of the games.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham have been in excellent form this season, unbeaten in all of their seven Premier League outings. Jose Mourinho has transformed the North Londoners into a title contender as they currently sit at the top of the Premier League table.

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are turning out to be the best-attacking duo in the league, as they share 16 goals and 10 assists between them.

Spurs will be without right-back Matt Doherty who was tested positive whilst on the international break with the Republic of Ireland.

Possible line up

Hugo Lloris, Serge Aurier, Toby Alderweireld, Davidson Sanchez, Sergio Reguilón, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale, Harry Kane

Manchester City

Manchester City have been off to a fluctuating start to Premier League this season, suffering three defeats and a draw in seven games thus far.

However, Man City players are the ones who have benefited much from the international break; Ferran Torres scored a hat-trick in Spain’s 6-0 win against Germany, Phil Foden shone for Three Lions with a brace against Iceland.

Pep Guardiola would look to end Spurs’ unbeaten run on Saturday, with Sergio Aguero returning to the squad. Raheem Sterling is doubtful after picking up an injury in the international break.

Possible line up

Ederson, Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, Joao Cancelo, Rodri, Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling
