Tottenham vs Manchester City promises to be another Premier League classic with so many records at stake.

Tottenham and England star Harry Kane will become only the third player to score 200 Premier League goals if he scores against Manchester City today, the only players to reach this milestone are Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.

Tottenham may be without their manager Antonio Conte who had surgery to remove a gallbladder this week- he might have to help his coaching staff from his living room this weekend, but no one wants to entirely rule him out the game at the moment.

Spurs have always been tough opponents for Man City- especially at the new stadium where City have lost all four of their games, and surprisingly without ever scoring.

The Lilywhites also hold the joint record of being the side to beat Pep Guardiola’s team 27 times, the only other side they have lost so many to is Chelsea.

Harry Kane nearly joined City a couple of seasons ago but for the strong refusal of chairman Daniel Levy, Kane has scored four times in 13 games against City in top flight games, he will have to be on his best form if Conte’s side are to take all three points today.

The England striker is currently on 266 goals in all competitions, the next one will take him clear of Tottenham legend Jimmy Greaves to 267, surely that is a matter of when and not if at this stage.

There is light at the end of the tunnel when it comes injuries too for Tottenham with Lucas Moura, who has missed a chunk of the season finally back in training as well as Richarlison who picked up a knock also in contention for this one.
