 Prediction Tottenham vs Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will host a tantalizing match on Sunday 15 August 2021 At 9:00 PM IST, when defending champions Manchester City travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League
Man City will be looking to defend the title they won last season, while Spurs will be aiming to push closer to the top four in 2021-22, having finished a disappointing seventh in the top flight last term.
Now under the management of Nuno Espirito Santo, it will be interesting to see what Tottenham have achieved this season, and as expected, talk of Harry Kane has dominated the preparations for this contest; The England captain trained with his team-mates on Friday, but Nuno declined to reveal whether the striker will play against a team that is desperate to sign him in the current market.
Spurs have managed to improve their squad this summer with the arrivals of Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero, but it would be a monumental blow for the North London club if they lose Kane, whom the Tottenham chairman considers appreciated. Daniel Levy is over £160m.
Whether Kane plays or not this weekend, Tottenham have the bigger fish to fry, with a team desperate to make a positive start to the season. Last season, the club claimed seventh, but they are only five points off the top four, and Nuno will definitely be looking to move closer to a Champions League spot this season.
Not much to read about in pre-season, but Spurs impressed in their last friendlies against Chelsea and Arsenal, drawing 2-2 with the Blues before beating the Gunners 1-0 on August 8, and there's a lot to be gained. seen by fans. positive attitude in two contests earlier this month.

Man City's 2021-22 campaign officially kicked off last weekend, with the Citizens suffering a 1-0 loss to Leicester City in the Community Shield, but it was a less powerful side that took to the pitch.

Man City have broken England's transfer record this summer to sign Jack Grealish, while they are still said to be actively pursuing Kane, although Guardiola refused to discuss the England captaincy when asked about the situation during Friday's pre-match press conference.
The Citizens will believe that a positive result on Sunday will set them up for back-to-back home games against Norwich City and Arsenal to end the month, and it is imperative that the likes of Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea manage to hold on. to champions in the early months of the season.
Man City impressed in their last league outing with Tottenham, recording a 3-0 win at the Etihad Stadium, but Spurs won this particular fixture 2-0 last season, and it will be a story if Kane inspires the home side to open up chances. - successful weekend here.
Nuno revealed on Friday that Kane was back in training with the club, but it would be a surprise to see him in the starting XI this weekend, so Son Heung-min could take the lead.
New signing Romero is also a doubt due to the injury he picked up in the Copa America, meaning that Davinson Sanchez could feature alongside Eric Dier in defence.
Tanguy Ndombele was not expected to make the squad, but Japhet Tanganga should start at right-back despite being forced off against Arsenal last time out.
Lucas Moura, Dele Alli and Steven Bergwijn could finally operate as a three behind Son, with Giovani Lo Celso joining Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midfield.
As for Man City, Phil Foden remains sidelined with a foot injury, while Kevin De Bruyne will not be involved, as the Belgium international has yet to fully train with the club.
Raheem Sterling, John Stones, Kyle Walker and Ederson are all up for international commitments, and it wouldn't be surprising to see at least three of them start against Tottenham.
Grealish will make his Premier League debut for the Citizens, while Ferran Torres and Riyad Mahrez are also expected to feature in the final third, with Gabriel Jesus an option from the bench.
