LIVE UPDATE: Man City vs Tottenham

Welcome to the LIVES UPDATES of matchday 2 of the Premier League game between Manchester City vs Tottenham.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho could play his first game since the summer's Copa America, while Sergio Aguero is in contention for a recall.

Benjamin Mendy, who is continuing his rehabilitation after knee surgery, and Leroy Sane are long-term absentees.

Spurs are still without injured pair Dele Alli and Ryan Sessegnon and the suspended Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth.

Ben Davies is nearing fitness and Giovani Lo Celso may be involved after his first full week's training.

Manchester City hasn't lost a game since the defeat at Spurs in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final last April.

For all their unprecedented achievements last season, City must still feel a rueful sense of an opportunity spurned when they recall Aguero's missed penalty in North London and the VAR calls that went against them in the return.

City were awesome again at West Ham last Saturday and the Premier League record of 18 consecutive wins (a record they already hold) is in their sights.

Spurs had a decent transfer window in the end and started the season by beating an awkward Villa side - but it still requires quite a leap of faith to see anything other than a home win.
