The only two unbeaten sides left in the Premier League go head to head on Saturday evening as Tottenham travel to champions Manchester City.
Leon Bailey’s strike meant Manchester City missed the chance to go top as they were held to a 1-1 draw away at Aston Villa.
Erling Haaland scored in the draw and also bagged a brace in the Champions League as City won 4-0 away at Sevilla.
Richarlison opened his Tottenham account in the same competition, scoring both as Tottenham edged past Marseille.
Their good start to the league season continued with a narrow 2-1 success over Fulham, with Harry Kane among the scorers.
Premier League form: Manchester City W3 D2 L0; Tottenham W3 D2 L0
Premier League top scorers
Manchester City – Erling Haaland 11 goals
Tottenham – Harry Kane 5 goals
Spurs have a good recent record against Manchester City and did the double over the champions last season.
Kane put in one of the performances of the season in the win at the Etihad, scoring twice and playing a huge part in the other as Tottenham won 3-2.

Kyle Walker missed the trip to Sevilla and probably won’t feature until after the international break.
John Stones could return from illness, but may have to make do with a spot on the bench.
Richarlison will likely keep his spot in the side, meaning Dejan Kulusevski or Heung Min Son would start among the substitutes.
Clement Lenglet has started the last two ahead of Ben Davies and may well continue at the Etihad.
Expected starting XI’s
Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Gomez; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Bernardo, Haaland, Foden
Tottenham (3-4-3): Lloris; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon; Richarlison, Kane, Son
Result: Manchester City
It should be a close one, however we just fancy the home side to nick it
Correct Score: 2-1
Can see Spurs scoring, but City still edging out
Anytime Goalscorer: Erling Haaland
Hard to back against him really!
