Man City v Tottenham prediction and team news: Who will win Premier League game?
Our predictions for Man City v Tottenham in the Premier League, including who we think will win and predicted line-ups.
Manchester City host Tottenham as both teams look to get back on track after derby defeats last weekend.
Pep Guardiola's reigning Premier League champions went down to Manchester United on Saturday as Jack Grealish's header was cancelled out by Bruno Fernandes's controversial equaliser, before Marcus Rashford slid home the winner to send Old Trafford into raptures.
Tottenham were outplayed and outfought on home soil by Arsenal the following day as the Gunners moved eight points clear of City at the top of the table and Spurs slipped further off the pace in the top-four race.
The match also boasts the sub-plot of the Premier League's leading scorers facing off, with Erling Haaland bidding to end his two-game drought in front of goal and Harry Kane trying to close the gap in the Golden Boot battle.
Spurs did the double over City last season and under-pressure boss Antonio Conte will be hoping for a repeat of their last trip to the Etihad Stadium when Kane scored a dramatic winner at the death.

Man City v Tottenham prediction
Manchester City have been poor in their last two games in all competitions, but their record on home soil means they should claim all three points against Tottenham.
A surprising lack of creativity plagued their defeats to Southampton and Manchester United, although Pep Guardiola's team have scored three or more goals in six of their nine home league matches this term.

Erling Haaland barely had a sniff at Old Trafford, but he should have plenty of opportunities here as Spurs were sloppy at the back in the North London derby. He is fancied to get on the scoresheet, as 66 per cent of his goals have come at the Etihad Stadium this season.
Tottenham's stubborn habit of playing poorly in the first half of games and conceding first makes them vulnerable and they need to score first to realistically stand a chance of leaving with a positive result.
Our prediction: Man City 3-1 Tottenham (11/1 at bet365)
