Manchester City have the chance to trim Arsenal’s lead at the top of the Premier League to two points when they face Tottenham.
Mikel Arteta’s side suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to Everton as the Sean Dyche era began in raucous fashion at Goodison Park on Saturday.
If City are to capitalise upon the Gunners leaving the door ajar, they will have to end a dismal run at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where they have played four and lost four without scoring a goal since it was opened in 2019.
Harry Kane is one goal away from becoming Spurs’ all-time leading goalscorer, while Antonio Conte will be absent from the touchline after undergoing surgery to have his gallbladder removed
City are playing for the first time since letting first-choice left-back Joao Cancelo join Bayern Munich on loan for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day.
