Tottenham vs Manchester City (Premier League): Match Preview, Team News, Head to Head, How to Watch



| Last Updated:


Manchester City commence their final two league games of the season, as they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the capital on Tuesday night.

It simply doesn’t get bigger than this, with the title on the line the Blues must defeat Tottenham away from home to return to the summit before the final day – The catch; City have never managed to win in the league at this ground.

Travelling to north London, City will have the other half watching intensely, with the imperious fate of Arsenal falling almost poetically into the hands of bitter rivals Tottenham, whom they need to rely on for a favour on Tuesday.

Manchester City did the business at the weekend when they travelled down to London, in an emphatic 0-4 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday lunchtime, with Josko Gvardiol grabbing a brace, Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez each getting a goal.

Despite the set back beforehand with Jack Grealish not travelling due to illness and Nathan Ake pulling up in the first-half, the Sky Blues must keep the momentum heading into this one if they are to keep their title hopes alive.

Grealish returned to full first-team training on Monday after his illness, while Ake also joined up with the squad later, though remains a doubt for this one.

With that being said, here is everything you need to know heading into the game against Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday night.

Match Details

Tottenham Hotspur welcome champions Manchester City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night in the Premier League, with kick-off scheduled for 20:00 GMT.

Team News

Postecoglu confirmed that Yves Bissouma will miss the remainder of the season after picking up a small knock on his knee against Burnley at the weekend.

Destiny Udogie and Timo Werner are also ruled out for the remainder of the season, while Ben Davies who replaced Udogie in defence will be absent for this one.

For Guardiola, Jack Grealish is expected to make his return to the team after missing the victory over Fulham, while Nathan Ake is a slight doubt, with Guardiola confirming he is training on Monday but Tuesday might come too soon for the Dutchman.

Head to Head

Manchester City have never won at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League, with last season’s 1-0 victory for the home side the last time the two clubs faced each other on this ground in the league.

The Cityzens did claim their first victory on this ground the last time they met, which resulted in a 0-1 win for City in the FA Cup back in January, courtesy of a late Ake winner in front of 9,000 travelling fans.

Tottenham managed to scrape a 3-3 draw back at the Etihad Stadium the last time the two clubs met back in December.


  • Rodri’s last loss is a Manchester City shirt came on this ground, back in February 2023 with Harry Kane the only scorer in a 1-0 win for the hosts.
  • Rodri can make it 73 games unbeaten for club and country if he avoids defeat on Tuesday, though a draw would feel more like a loss given the circumstances.
  • Four of the last seven encounters between the two clubs have ended 1-0, while the other three games have seen 5+ goals each, including a 4-2, 3-3 and a 2-3. Three wins each and a draw in the last seven.
