After tasting defeat in the Manchester and north London derbies respectively, it’s another huge game for both Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte.
Neither team have truly lived up to their pre-season billing, whether that be City walking the title race following the signing of Erling Haaland or Spurs competing for the top prize in English football.
Another defeat would surely end any hope City have of catching Arsenal at the top of the Premier League, while Spurs cannot risk falling further behind in the race for the top four.
A huge game at the Etihad Stadium, here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Manchester City vs Tottenham team news
Ruben Dias could make his return from injury in a major boost to City, with the defender yet to appear since the World Cup.
With John Stones having missed the losses at both Southampton and Manchester United, having the Portugal international available would be most welcome for Guardiola. On Stones, it remains unclear at this stage as to whether or not he will feature.
In a fresh blow for City, Kevin De Bruyne is said to have missed training on Tuesday.
For Spurs, Rodrigo Bentancur is expected back from the injury that has ruled him out since domestic football resumed after the World Cup. Richarlison is also available after playing against Arsenal, while Ivan Perisic is expected to start.
