The Cityzens head into this match with a purpose of reclaiming the top spot

Following a second consecutive league draw against Liverpool last weekend, Manchester City swiftly recovered with a 3-2 victory over RB Leipzig during the midweek fixture. Under Pep Guardiola’s guidance, the team has maintained an unbeaten record at home this season, with only one instance of failing to secure a win.

Tottenham suffered their third consecutive league defeat in their recent match against Aston Villa, facing a challenging fixture against Manchester City in their upcoming game. Despite grappling with a considerable number of absent players, Spurs still possess the ability to score goals and make an impact on the field. If Ange Postecoglou goes with the high defensive line against Manchester City, then Spurs may be in for a rough afternoon.

Injury & Team News

Pep Guardiola, the manager of Manchester City, is currently facing the absence of three key players due to injuries: Kevin De Bruyne, Matheus Nunes, and Mateo Kovacic. This unfortunate situation leaves the team without the valuable contributions and skills that these players typically bring to the field. De Bruyne, Nunes, and Kovacic’s absence could significantly impact the team’s performance.

Yves Bissouma’s return to the Tottenham squad comes at a crucial time as they face the loss of Rodrigo Bentancur due to injury, sidelining him until the New Year. The Uruguayan’s unfortunate injury adds to an already extensive list of absentees for the team. Among these sidelined players are Micky van de Ven, James Maddison, and Cristian Romero, although Romero is currently serving the final match of a three-game suspension.
