Table-topping City are unbeaten in their last five league outings with just one draw in that period. Indeed, they have picked up 43 of the 45 available points after being stunned by a 0-2 defeat to Crystal Palace, with Southampton the only team not to lose to them.
Spurs, meanwhile, have had a dismal time, losing to both Southampton and Wolves at home. Those disappointments happened after they had already lost to Chelsea for a fourth time this season in the previous round of Premier League fixtures.
That bad run has led to outspoken comments from Antonio Conte in which he once again raised concerns about his squad. The Tottenham manager will be without Oliver Skipp for the trip to Etihad Stadium as the midfielder has not yet recovered from injury. Centre back Eric Dier does return, though.
Manchester City barely broke a sweat in beating Sporting Lisbon 0-5 in the Champions League in midweek. Raheem Sterling continued his current goal scoring hot streak with a wonderful strike in Portugal. He will be one of a number of attacking players posing a serious threat to a shaky Spurs back line. The impressive performance also meant the likes of Phil Foden, Rodri, and Bernardo Silva could be substituted ahead of the weekend, although all three start today.
Manchester City look set for the title this year, while Tottenham Hotspur need to regain some of the form and confidence they had in the earlier part of Conte’s reign at the club if they are to have any hope of qualifying for next season’s Champion League.
However, Spurs do not have a great recent record away to Manchester City, who have won eight and drawn two of the last 11 meetings between the teams on their home turf. Indeed, Spurs' only recent Premier League victory during a visit to the blue half of Manchester is a 2016 1-2 victory courtesy of goals from Christian Ericksen and Harry Kane. They did, though, win the reverse fixture on the opening day of this season.
Here's how they line up:
Man City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo, Gundogan, Rodri, Bernardo Silva, Foden, De Bruyne, Sterling
Tottenham: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies, Emerson, Sessegnon, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Kulusevski, Son, Kane
