Man City boost: Kevin De Bruyne in squad to face Tottenham
Tottenham vs Man City
Manchester City and Tottenham are set to go head-to-head in the capital later today.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all began their Premier League campaigns on Saturday by earning some comfortable wins over Crystal Palace, Norwich and Leeds.
As a result, Pep Guardiola and co. are no doubt desperate for a similar result in order to keep pace with their title rivals early on.
Spurs, meanwhile, are looking for their first league win under new boss, Nuno Espirito Santo.

Kevin De Bruyne travels to Tottenham
Ahead of the game getting underway at 4:30 PM UK time, Man City’s 21-man travelling squad has been revealed.
And there is something of a surprise inclusion in the squad in the form of Kevin De Bruyne.
Pep Guardiola claimed earlier this month that the midfielder was still out after picking up an injury at Euro 2020.
Then, on Friday this week, the Spaniard stated that KDB was still not able to do full training sessions – perhaps suggesting he would not be fit enough to feature against Spurs?
“He is getting better [De Bruyne]. Every day he is getting better. But we are still waiting. He can’t do a full training session. Some with us, some alone. We will see in the next few days.”
