Tottenham head into the eagerly-anticipated clash in buoyant mood, sitting just a point below Leicester eight matches in, after a stand-out 6-1 victory away at Manchester United and most recently a last-gasp winner against West Brom.But while Spurs have kicked on following a turbulent season last time out, the same can't be said for Pep Guardiola's men, who have struggled to get going in 2020-21.City languish in 10th place with just 12 points from seven games, lacking the usual spell-binding fluidity in attack while also looking vulnerable in defence.

Guardiola's record against old enemy Jose Mourinho, with whom the pair's rivalry goes back further than their heated El Clasico days, is cause for optimism.

In 23 matches in all competitions, Guardiola has come out on top on 10 occasions compared to Mourinho's six.

After the Italian side ran out 3-2 aggregate winners following a typically stubborn defensive performance from a Mourinho side, the Portuguese boss ran across the Nou Camp pitch to celebrate with the travelling supporters - which enraged Barcelona fans and their squad.Mourinho's rivalry with Guardiola then really took off when they battled it out against each other in El Clasico, with the Guardiola predominantly earning the bragging rights.

When Mourinho played host to Guardiola at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it was in fact the Portuguese who reigned supreme.

The Portuguese boss will be confident his Spurs side have a real shot of beating City once again following their strong start to the season.

While Guardiola has plans to kickstart City's season this weekend, Mourinho would absolutely relish putting another huge dent in his foe's title aspirations.
