Team News
Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham have been handed a timely double injury boost ahead of Sunday's game, as Richarlison has recovered from an adductor niggle, and Lucas Moura is also set to return from his troublesome tendon problem.
Pape Sarr remains doubtful with a hip issue, though, and Stellini could hand an immediate full debut to ex-Man City product Pedro Porro, whose move from Sporting Lisbon was confirmed on deadline day despite an initial collapse.
Porro's arrival triggered Djed Spence's loan exit to Rennes and Matt Doherty's contract termination, with the latter now on the books at Atletico Madrid after playing 71 minutes of the win over Preston.
A fit-again Kane will be one of several first-teamers to return to the first XI here, as he goes in search of the strike which will bring up 200 Premier League goals and see him surpass Jimmy Greaves in Tottenham's all-time scoring charts
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Porro, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

Manchester City
Full-back movements were also the theme at Man City late in the transfer window, as Joao Cancelo completed a surprise loan move to Bayern Munich, although he denied that a bust-up with Guardiola was to blame.

Cancelo had lost his spot in the side to 18-year-old protege Rico Lewis anyway, and the teenager should earn another start after John Stones came off with a thigh injury in the FA Cup win over Arsenal, where Phil Foden missed out entirely due to a foot issue.

Guardiola has now conceded that Stones will face between three weeks and a month on the sidelines, but Foden should be fit enough to return from his foot injury.

The infamous 'Pep roulette' may come into play as Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Julian Alvarez all pine for recalls, while Mahrez will seek to build on a stellar record of seven goals and four assists against Spurs - against no other team has he registered as many contributions in the Premier League.
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Lewis, Akanji, Laporte, Ake; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Haaland, Grealish
Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Manchester City
