Spurs went top for a couple of hours before the international break and victory at home will send them into first spot over night.
Mourinho masterminded a win over Guardiola when these two teams met in February, but even the Spurs manager will likely admit his team role their luck that day.
Tottenham vs Manchester City is scheduled for a 5:30pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, November 21, 2020.
The match will be held behind closed doors at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, with coverage from 5pm.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via Sky Go and the app.
Tottenham will be without Matt Doherty, who has tested positive for coronavirus, meaning Serge Aurier will deputise. Erik Lamela is also sidelined, though with a calf injury.
Tanguy Ndombele and Steven Bergwijn will be assessed ahead of kick-off as they nurse niggling injuries.
Manchester City will again be without Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho, while Raheem Sterling is hopeful of being involved after sitting out England duty.
Prediction: Tottenham 2-2 Man City
This is Tottenham’s toughest test so far and the start of a stern run of fixtures. City have been poor so far but know how to turn it on against the league’s better sides – drawing with Liverpool and beating Wolves and Arsenal.
Spurs will likely rely on the counterattack, but may not have the defence to shut out City. An entertaining draw is our shout.
