Tottenham – Manchester City is a tantalizing clash on Saturday (start time 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC and online via NBCSportscom)

Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will see the horns again, as Spurs are five points above City but have played one more game

This clash marks the start of a series of crucial games for Mourinho’s Spurs as they face Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool in three of their next four games after meeting Man City As for City, they have a chance to create real momentum as they are now undefeated for eight matches in all competitions

74th minute: OK, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden are now Can they save a point for City late !? They must be more direct than Mahrez and Silva were

65th minute: GOALLLLL! Talk about making an impact on the bench Giovani Lo Celso is found by Harry Kane and he finishes superbly on the Spurs in Dreamland goal Mourinho Boys’ Clinic, as the directors go wild in the lodge just behind the dugout canoes. , they put down their expensive hip flasks full of whiskey and looked pretty muffled as they clapped vigorously So, yes, they went crazy…

63rd minute: Spurs bring Lo Celso for Ndombele The hosts calmed things down and had a decent possession period Eric Dier is so vocal, shouting at his midfielder and attackers and telling them where to move “H , don’t give up! ” “No Stevie stay there” Man City are very predictable This is their biggest problem Mahrez and Silva continue to reduce and slow down the game It plays in the hands of Spurs

55th minute: Every time I look up Kevin de Bruyne is on the ball in a danger zone This time it flakes off Hojbjerg, which was made for a game like this, rallies the troops as the born general that he is

49th minute: it was close! I thought it was, just like Phil Foden warming up in front of me and raising his arms to celebrate Kevin de Bruyne was picked after Serge Aurier’s loose pass and his low curler scuttled right next to Dominant City, everything like the first half

My thoughts at halftime: the techno music echoing here sums up the vibe It’s lively and fiery Spurs’ club will be happy at halftime Mourinho’s men scored early, seemed a threat to the break and sat down and did their best to frustrate City That said, Pep Guardiola will think if his players keep playing like this the floodgates will open when they score They have Sterling and Aguero on the bench, don’t forget

Halftime whistle: Several Man City players follow Walker’s lead as half-time whistle blows Bernardo Silva and Kevin de Bruyne throw their arms in the air in disgust as four Man City players surround officials and scold them over 40 yards as they leave the pitch Gabriel Jesus is almost in tears as he tries to explain that he didn’t commit handball Walker waits through the tunnel for Dean to pursue his complaints too

😡 Several Man City players face Mike Dean at halftime, scolding him, and did so for 40 yards as he left the pitch

45th minute: Kyle Walker is clearly frustrated with Mike Dean letting Spurs get away with wasting time “Ref you let them do what they want He counts as Spurs take a long time to recover the ball, then to throw a throw “7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12… They don’t want to play football” Walker is not happy

42nd minute: Man City want another penalty Ferran Torres drops, but there was no contact there Jesus slams the ball wide Man City are not happy at all as they are complaining at the ‘unison

36th minute: Man City continue to dominate They are furious, once again, as Laporte grabs Harry Kane who squeezes his ankle This piece falls into Kane’s ‘smart’ category Not that Mourinho likes it when you calls him intelligent Gareth Bale, Joe Rodon and Ben Davies warm up together in front of me on the sidelines “The three Welsh-eteers” will say some …

29th minute: DRAMA! Aymeric Laporte thought he equalized after Hugo Lloris initially saved a header but VAR is used and Mike Dean is asked to use the field side monitor He does and sees that Gabriel Jesus dealt with just before Laporte slammed home The right decision, clearly, but that didn’t stop the Man City players from screaming bloodcurdlingly as the replay was shown on the big screen here in the stadium

NO GOALS! Gabriel Jesus penalized for handball just before Laporte slams at home Mike Dean said to use field side monitor He rules out goal Replay is then displayed on screen here and Man City players go ballistic I air handball #THFC 1-0 #MCFC #TOTMCI

26th minute: Bergwijn falls into the box as Rodri arrives just as he’s about to shoot No penalty Man City then break up with Kevin de Bruyne running at full speed while Mourinho endlessly claps on the sidelines for that his team can come back Bernardo Silva takes too long and Man City win a corner

23rd minute: Son is on the right again, as a long pass catches Man City Cancelo through a rough patch at left-back Sergio Reguilon then howls like a baby goat as he wants the ball out on the left, but it doesn’t come to him Calm down, kid I’ll see myself outside…

20th minute: Things have calmed down slightly, but Man City have had plenty of free kicks and turns Kevin de Bruyne runs the show in midfield

13th minute: Just as Dias calls them to push, they are made on top with a long ball Bergwijn finds Son who finds Kane, but the latter is only a small offside The stadium PA operator briefly played Sandstorm by Darude to celebrate I’m talking about it about 2 seconds before the music abruptly cuts off, like the bad guy just walked into the party and everyone turns around to watch Comedic Moment

9th minute: Ruben Dias keeps screaming, “squeezing” and “squeezing high” as he tries to get Man City up early on the pitch He’s so vocal and really tries to bring Man City back in that

7th minute: Talk about unlucky Gabriel Jesus makes a mazy run, falls, no fault is committed The ball breaks to Kevin de Bruyne, his shot goes in… but he hits Jesus who is on the ground He was going in The flag goes up while Jesus was in an offside position Man City continues to dominate

5th minute: GOALLL! Tottenham lead early and it’s that man Heung-min Son He runs on a nice ball from Tanguy Ndombele, all of Man City’s defensive unit is caught too high and Son rounds Ederson and comes home So easy for Spurs, after Man City also dominated early on

3rd minute: Man City bench properly set for it All bench goes up after they didn’t win a foul

1st minute: Mourinho shouts “goooo!” when Man City play the ball through the defensive line He wants Tottenham to press high

Get started! Moving tribute to legendary Tottenham and England goalkeeper Ray Clemence, who died at the age of 72 earlier this week A poignant minute of applause watched by everyone inside the stadium The applause ends on a whistle from the referee, while chanting “Come on, you Spurssssss!” Sounding through the speakers There are no fans here, obviously, but there is a real buzz in front of this game

Pre-match shenanigans: Welcome to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on a slightly chilly evening here in North London!

The UK is on a national lockdown, meaning everyone here will make themselves comfortable at home to witness a tantalizing clash between Mourinho’s Tottenham and Guardiola’s Man City All eyes are on Spurs and City, and keeping an eye on the warm-up here, Gabriel Jesus smashed his head with a back heel (it was funny because he finally laughed) and Raheem Sterling looked very relaxed then that he was warming up with the other submarines

The Tottenham club staff who move around the stadium all have one thing in front of it: confidence

Here’s a glimpse of the scene around this stadium beauty as Avicii blows through the speakers It’s almost time

Tottenham v Man City should be a superb game Live analysis and reaction here ➡️ https: // tco / cIloPSzX62 # THFC v #MCFC #TOTMCI picTwittercom / om62bP2472

I’m getting live analysis and reaction to what should be an epic Tottenham v #MCFC clash between Tottenham and Man City #THFC v #MCFC is live at 12:30 p.m. ET

Tottenham look pretty good on the injury front, although Matt Doherty is out due to testing positive for COVID-19 while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland Doherty is now going self-isolate, while Erik Lamela is also expected to miss as he is close to a return from a foot injury Japhet Tanganga remains absent

Man City have Sergio Aguero on the bench again after being sidelined last month with a hamstring injury Raheem Sterling is on the bench after receiving a blow during international service, while Fernandinho is not available

Jose Mourinho, via his Instagram account, is clearly looking forward to the international break: “Incredible football week Great emotions in the national team matches, superb friendlies and total safety Covid test results after the games played, field draws during team sessions and much more After another training session with just six players, now is the time to take care of myself “

Pep Guardiola on the return of the five-substitute rule: “It’s not about profit, it’s about protecting the players I don’t understand what an advantage three or five are The show must go on, it’s not about playing games or not playing games or enjoying one or the other It’s too much The previous season ended later It was different It was too It was exceptional The situation today is exceptional and all leagues around the world understand the situation Except here “

Manchester City (-125) are the favorites but Tottenham (300) is worth a punt The draw at 290 seems attractive

It will be really hard to call after so many players from both teams have just returned from the international break all over the world I think Man City have hit their target in recent weeks and look a lot better defensively With Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero back, it makes a big difference and Spurs will struggle to keep them silent Tottenham 1-3 Man City
