Tottenham have made three changes to the side that beat CSKA Moscow in the Champions League 1-0 during midweek.
Striker Vincent Janssen drops to the bench with Kieran Tripper and Ben Davies, while Moussa Sissoko, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose return to the starting XI.
Here is the club’s official Twitter account posting the Tottenham starting XI to face Manchester City:

Son Heung-min, who starts up front, will be hoping to continue his impressive form after scoring in the victory in Russia, taking his tally to five goals in his last five games.
Central-defensive duo Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld continue at the heart of the club’s defence and have the unenviable task of stopping the in-form Sergio Aguero.
Eric Dier returns to the Spurs bench following injury, while Christian Eriksen, Dele Ali and Eric Lamela are the other attacking options in the starting XI.
The north London club have registered three wins on the bounce in the league and sit in third place with 14 points. A win at White Hart Lane would take them to within one point of Pep Guardiola’s City side.
In contrast the Etihad club have won their opening six games of the campaign, as they remain the only team with a 100% record this season.
Spurs have won their previous four games in all competitions and take on a City side that have won 10 out of 11 games in all competitions since Guardiola’s arrival.
