Tottenham vs Manchester City: Premier League preview
Spurs, who threw a two-goal lead away when visiting City only a few weeks ago, remain in the hunt for Champions League qualification but have little more margin for error. Often, it has felt as if they are approaching crisis, though three points here would really ramp up the pressure on Manchester United and Newcastle.
Indeed, this is far from a vintage City side, at the moment at least. Erling Haaland clearly brings goals but the champions have certainly seen their level drop this season, with even Pep Guardiola criticising them.
On the trail of Arsenal at the top of the League, they cannot afford to drop many more points.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Tottenham vs Manchester City team news
Pedro Porro is in line to make his Spurs debut following a deadline day move to the club, ironically against the team who let him go earlier in his career. The Spanish international may come in at right wing-back, with both Matt Doherty and Djed Spence departing.
Arnaut Danjuma could make his first Premier League appearance too, though perhaps Heung-min Son’s two goals against Preston will see him continue up-front despite a poor season.
Manager Antonio Conte will likely miss the game after surgery.
For City, Joao Cancelo’s shock departure means Nathan Ake is all but certain to start at left-back, while John Stones’ injury should see Manuel Akanji pair Ruben Dias in central defence.
Tottenham vs Manchester City prediction
It’s difficult to know what City will turn up, though Haaland could prove decisive. Spurs are hardly proving difficult to score against at the moment and the Norway international is on course to break all manner of records in England.
Man City to win 3-1.
