Tottenham Hotspur will play hosts to Manchester City this evening (Sunday) in their Premier League opener in the 2021-22 season.
It is a daunting first challenge for Nuno Espirito Santo, in particular, as he looks to guide a largely disintegrated squad into a safe passage up against the reigning English champions.
The Lilywhites preparations were more about the transfer market than performances, having roped in no less than three quality players so far whilst still keeping hold of Harry Kane.
Incidentally, Manchester City are in pole position to land the English international this summer.
Although there is work to be done on that front, the Citizens are heading into this season as the undisputed favourites to lift the Premier League title once again.
Nevertheless, they head into this game, hoping to gain all three points and kick-start their title defence on a positive note.
Tottenham Vs Man City Lineup
Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Tanganga, Sánchez, Dier, Reguilón, Skipp, Højbjerg, Bergwijn, Alli, Lucas, Son
Man City XI (4-3-3): Moraes, Cancelo, Dias, Aké, Mendy, Grealish, Fernandinho, Gündoğan, Mahrez, Torres, Sterling
Kick off is at 16:30 (GMT +1).
