Fernandinho returns to the first squad after a suspension because of the direct red card he picked up at Burnley. It could ease off Guardiola regarding the mid-back partner for Toure. Everything else about rotations seem quite predictable and the Spanish managed will surely stick to De Bruyne - Sterling - David Silva under attack-faced Sergio Agüero.

Manchester City vs. Tottenham: Match Preview
Despite the tremendous form gained by "The Spurs", they retain having some hardships when playing at away, as their run includes two away wins to Watford and Southampton, but prior to those they didn't spark that bright suffering four draws and two defeats out of all ten fixtures they participated in away from home. And here they are welcomed by one of the ruthless home teams, which has actually carried off three consecutive wins.

So we're not going to be saying how hard Tottenham's supposed to try so that they put an defeat to The Citizens, but they therewith will not be easy to win, as well as the Hotspur squad is really up now. We expect the game to flow to the cautions type with no much space open, trying to push each other's play organization through the midfield little by little.
