Can Mourinho get the Better of Pep Once Again?
Mourinho and Guardiola have been rivals ever since they battled it out as managers of Real Madrid and Barcelona, where sometimes their rivalry turned ugly. The ‘Special One' is unbeaten in his last two games against Guardiola, picking up a win and draw against Man City last season. We're expecting another tight and tense battle between two of the world's best-ever managers this weekend.
Tottenham left it late to clinch all 3pts away at West Brom last time out, needing an 88th-minute Harry Kane goal to clinch the victory. Spur's win saw them break into the top two and left West Brom on 3pts from their opening eight matches.
Man City fell behind at home to Liverpool last time out, as Mohamed Sala scored from the penalty spot in the 13th-minute for the champions. However, City responded well and got back onto level terms just after the half-hour mark through Gabriel Jesus. De Bruyne could have put the hosts when City were awarded a spot-kick of their own before the break, but the Belgian fluffed his lines and the game ended in a draw.
Spurs just about edge the form guide heading into this weekend's match, despite City remaining unbeaten in their last six matches. Tottenham have won five and lost one of their last six outings, equating to 15pts, while Man City won four and drew two during that same period, which totals 14pts.
Tottenham have only lost once in the Premier League this season, at home to Everton on the opening day, while City have dropped points in two of their away games in the league.
Head to Head Record
Man City lead the head to head record between these two clubs. City have won 56, drawn 32, and lost 54 of their last 142 games against Tottenham. However, Spurs took 4pts from their games against Guardiola's men last season, winning 2-0 at home and drawing 2-2 at the Etihad. Spurs have also won their last two home games against Man City and will be confident they can upset the odds once again this weekend.
Erik Lamela has officially been ruled out of Saturday's clash due to injury and isn't expected back until next week. Tanguy Ndombele is having his foot injury assessed and Steven Bergwijn has an undisclosed issue that could keep them out of this weekend's match, while Japhet Tanganga could make his return following a thigh injury.
Sergio Aguero is expected to be out for another week with a thigh injury, while Fernandinho is also expected to miss out. Nathan Ake and Raheem Sterling could return from thigh injuries in time to feature and Benjamin Mendy is back in full training.
