Pep Guardiola will be hoping to celebrate the news of his new Manchester City contract with a win on Saturday but standing in his way are Tottenham Hotspur and his old rival, Jose Mourinho.
The City manager will also have to contend with a number of injuries ahead of the Premier League clash. Nathan Ake and Raheem Sterling both picked up minor injuries while on international duty with England and both could be forced to the bench or miss the game entirely.
Oleksandr Zinchenko was placed in quarantine whilst on international duty, meaning Guardiola will also be without the left-back, alongside the previously injured Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho.
However, Guardiola isn't the only manager scratching his head as he tries to accomodate numerous injuries, as Mourinho also has a number of call offs to deal with in his own Tottenham side.
Erik Lamela and Tanguy Ndombele are both carrying knocks after the international break and could miss Saturday's clash, while a positive COVID result for Matt Doherty means the right-back will undoubtedly miss the match as well.
