Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City

Kick-off – 8 pm

Match officials

Referee: Kevin Friend
 Stuart Burt, Matthew Wilkes
Fourth official:
 Andre Marriner

Tottenham Hotspur

Depending on the source – central defender Jan Vertonghen is missing with either a hamstring or thigh injury. Either way the 31-year-old Belgian international is thought to be out until the middle of December.

Spurs striker Vincent Janssen (foot) is also out for a similar length of time.

Victor Wanyama (hamstring), Danny Rose (groin) should be given the green light while Dele Alli has recovered but will probably start on the bench.

Manchester City

Claudio Bravo and Eliaquim Mangala remain unavailable with longer-term injuries while Fabian Delph has returned to training following a lengthy layoff.

IIkay Gundogan and Danilo are significant doubts while Kevin De Bruyne could make his first Premier League start of the season after coming on as a sub against Shakhtar Donetsk six days ago.

Woeful Wembley Stadium Pitch (Various Angle) Images

Playing an NFL game between Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars on the Wembley pitch 24 hours before a vital Premier League fixture has left the grass looking tired and tattered. Oh well, the state of the turf will be the same for both, and so the lads will have to get on with it.

There are some who are trying to see the funny side.

Come on CITY!
