Tottenham travels to the Etihad Stadium hoping to end a run of three consecutive defeats when they face Manchester City.
Man City made it back-to-back draws in the Premier League last weekend, as they followed up their enthralling 4-4 game at Stamford Bridge with a 1-1 draw at the Etihad against Liverpool on Saturday. It was the first time in 2023 that the Citizens had failed to win a home game across all competitions, with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s equalizer ending City’s 23-game winning run on home soil.
Spurs haven’t had a longer losing run since losing six on the spin in October and November 2004, with Jacques Santini and Martin Jol managing three games each in that run, while the last Spurs manager to lose four in a row was David Pleat in March and April 2004.
H2H / Stats
Spurs do have an impressive record against City however, winning five of their last seven Premier League games against them (L2), becoming Pep Guardiola’s newest bogey team. In fact, since the Spaniard joined the club in 2016, Man City have lost more Premier League games against Tottenham than they have against any other opponent (6), while against no side have they conceded more goals (19, level with Liverpool).

John Stones could return to the starting line-up for City after recovering from injury, but Mateo Kovacic and Matheus Nunes are in a race to be fit for this game.
With Bentancur out for around ten weeks, Tottenham will hope Pape Sarr makes his comeback from a knock this weekend. James Maddison, Richarlison, and Micky van de Ven are among those to miss out but Yves Bissouma and Cristian Romero are set for timely returns from suspension.
Probable Line Up
Manchester City XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake; Akanji, Rodri; Foden, Alvarez, Bernardo, Doku; Haaland
Tottenham Hotspur XI: Vicario; Porro, Emerson, Davies, Udogie; Bissouma, Lo Celso; Johnson, Kulusevski, Gil; Son
Tottenham might have troubled Manchester City before but they are currently having struggles of their own. Its hard to see an area where they will topple the hosts.
