This match represents a good chance to see how these two teams have come along since last term when they ran each other all season long for that crucial fourth place spot. Harry Redknapp won that race at the death but Roberto Mancini has been spending vast sums this summer to get his Eastlands side up to speed and all eyes will be on the White Hart Lane encounter to see who is the more likely to offer a realistic challenge to the usual top four suspects.

The north London club did the double over City last season and a goal from Peter Crouch at the City of Manchester stadium secured Champions League football for this season so the Citizens will be out for an early taste of revenge.

Highlights of the meeting at Eastlands between these two teams last season.
