Manchester City travel to North London to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

This will be the Cityzens' first game since manager Pep Guardiola put pen to paper on a new deal at the club, which is set to keep him there until the end of the 2022-23 season.

Manchester City are currently five points behind Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, with a game in hand.

With the international breaks out of the way for the foreseeable future, Guardiola and Jose Mourinho will look for their teams to build a head of steam heading into the congested festive period fixtures.

Tottenham Hotspur are on a high after winning each of their last three Premier League games. The only Premier League game that they haven't won in the last five was due to a spectacular capitulation against West Ham United at home, but Jose Mourinho will be confident of his side being able to match Manchester City stride-for-stride.

Fernandinho's injury is expected to keep him out for a bit longer, as is the case with Benjamin Mendy. Nathan Ake, too, picked up a hamstring injury on international duty with the Netherlands, and will miss this game.

In a boost for Guardiola, Sergio Aguero should be available for selection again after recovering from a hamstring problem.
