City’s 3-1 triumph at Swansea in the FA Cup on Wednesday was their 15th win on the bounce, a record for a top-flight English club.
Spurs, meanwhile, are out of the FA Cup after losing a 5-4 thriller against Everton in extra-time.
Playing 120 minutes at Goodison Park was hardly the ideal preparation for Jose Mourinho’s team, with the Portuguese under pressure following a run of four defeats in five games.

Man City vs Tottenham team news
Pep Guardiola is hopeful that Rodri will be fit despite the midfielder beinig forced off against Swansea but Ruben Dias is a doubt after missing that game with a fever. Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero remain out, though the latter returned to training this week.
Jose Mourinho left Harry Kane on the bench at Goodison Park following his early return from injury and though the striker ended up playing an hour as the game went to extra-time, he will surely come into the starting lineup.
Man City vs Tottenham prediction: 3-1 home win
Having seen his side concede five in midweek, Mourinho will surely go to the Etihad with an ultra-cautious approach, but such are his side’s defensive frailties that it is difficult to see how they contain a rampant City attack.
