Spurs host Man City
Tottenham Hotspur face Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday with Jose Mourinho’s side sitting in second after a strong start to the season.
The North-London club have taken 17 points from eight games and haven’t lost in the Premier League since the opening day.
They beat West Brom 1-0 before the international break with Harry Kane notching his seventh league goal of the season and his 150th Premier League goal.
Spurs scored 15 times in five matches, but have managed just four in their past three games. They have won their past three games by the odd goal, beating Burnley, Brighton and West Brom.

Man City stats
Manchester City are in 10th with 12 points from seven games, having played a game fewer than Spurs.
Pep Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in their last five league matches, but have drawn three of those. City have scored just 10 goals in seven matches, at the same stage last season they had scored 27. The Blues have lost just one of their last 12 in all competitions.
In the two meetings last season, Spurs won 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with Steven Bergwijn and Heung-Min Son scoring, while there was a 2-2 draw at the Etihad last August.
