Tottenham Hotspur play Manchester City on Saturday night in the Premier League.

The hosts are in fine form and own the longest unbeaten record in the division heading into the game. Jose Mourinho's side have picked up 17 of the 21 points available in that time and could go top of the table with all three at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The visitors will be boosted with the news manager Pep Guardiola has committed his future to the club, putting pen to paper on a new two-year contract extension to put any talk of an exit at the end of the season to bed.

He will be hoping to get the better of old rival Mourinho again having faced off against him with Barcelona as well as City in recent years.

Spurs sit above City in the league at kick-off and could go a long way to silencing doubts over the credibility of their title challenge with a positive result against one of their true rivals for the trophy.
