Manchester City and Tottenham will go head-to-head in the featured Premier League game of this round and we will provide the latest updates as the game goes on. I am expecting goals today because Harry Kane is in very good form and Manchester City doesn’t know how to keep clean sheets.
The team news today for Manchester City sees Sergio Aguero returning to the matchday squad, but is only on the bench as Pep Guardiola opts to start with Gabriel Jesus to lead his attack.
England forward Raheem Sterling is also only fit enough for the bench after he withdrew from England duty with a calf injury suffered in training. This means Riyad Mahrez starts in his place and Bernardo, who comes in for Ilkay Gundogan joining Jesus in the attack.
Meanwhile, for Tottenham, manager Jose Mourinho makes two changes from the side that won at West Brom in the Premier League before the international break. Steven Bergwijn, who was a scorer when the teams met last season, replaces Gareth Bale, while Serge Aurier comes in for Matt Doherty after he tested positive for Covid-19 and is isolating.
It is a rare Premier League start for Bergwijn and his first since the 3-3 draw against West Ham United on July 9. His inclusion comes as a surprise to many, given that came he was sent home from international duty on November 10 because of what was reported as ‘fitness’ issues.
