This year sees Manchester City try to defend their crown and claim a historic fourth title in succession.

Meanwhile Luton Town are making their first appearance in the Premier League, having risen from non-league in an incredible decade of progress. They followed Championship winners Burnley and second-placed Sheffield United in earning promotion to the top flight.

Tottenham Hotspur FC 0 – 0 Manchester City FC

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

21:00

Foden has looked the sharpest of any City player on the pitch so far, and would have netted the opener if not for a fantastic close-range save from Vicario. The England star is yet to misplace a pass, has completed six in the final third, and also chimed in with two crosses, as well as engaging in a game-high 10 duels so far. He's won five of those, including two dribbles, and has also turned possession over three times – twice in the final third with the visitors hoping to exploit Spurs' efforts to play out from the back.

That first half has absolutely flown by, and at the break in one of the highest-stakes games of the season, it's goalless at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium!!! The hosts arguably went the closest of either side in the sixth minute, with Bentancur forcing an early stop from Ederson. Johnson has also threatened to open City up down the right on two occasions, winning corners with each following a block from Gvardiol and save from the goalkeeper. At the other end, Vicario has been busy too, producing an unbelievable reflex save to deny Foden from right in front and seeing further strikes from Gvardiol and Silva fizz just over the top or beyond his posts! The frantic, end-to-end nature is set to continue in the second half, and that can surely only mean that goals will follow.

20:49

BLOCKED!!! A goal-saver from Dragusin!!! Foden's drilled cross into the middle is met first-time by Haaland, but his side-footed shot strikes the leg of Van de Ven. Silva arrives on the follow-up looking certain to score, but his effort hits the Romanian defender and deflects behind again!!

HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-0 MANCHESTER CITY.

City go straight up the other end with a counter-attack of their own, but Silva's ball into the box deflects off Maddison to loop straight into Vicario's gloves.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:46

Tottenham play their way out of trouble quite brilliantly and Son sends Bentancur careering over halfway. He looks to pick a pass for Johnson in space on the right, but Gvardiol's there to intercept for City.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:45

Porro is penalised for a foul on Foden which gives City a free-kick to cross into the box, but De Bruyne's delivery is telegraphed straight to Vicario, who catches.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:44

Silva and Rodri combine looking to play De Bruyne into space down the right, but the City midfielder can't get there ahead of Spurs' speedy defender Van de Ven and he ushers the ball behind for a goal-kick.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:41

OVER!!! Walker's far post cross falls kindly for the arriving Gvardiol at the far post, but the Croatian's attempted volley is hit too hard and loops over the top for a goal-kick!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:40

Van de Ven and Maddison team up to dispossess Silva and the latter plays Hojbjerg in behind the defence, but the midfielder's low cross into the area is easily scooped up by Ederson for Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:38

Bentancur cuts down Foden very late indeed as the Manchester City playmaker sparks a counter-attack, and over a minute after the incident, the referee comes back to book the Tottenham midfielder.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:38

Maddison's delivery is glanced away but only as far as Son, who skews a half-volley through the crowd and behind, but the linesman flags for a goal-kick rather than corner to the shock of the Spurs playmaker!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:36

SAVED!!! Johnson races into the City box on the break and takes on Gvardiol around the outside, drilling a low shot towards the near post which Ederson parries behind for a corner!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:35

Under Pep Guardiola, Manchester City have lost more Premier League games against Tottenham than they have vs any other opponent (six).

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:32

Silva and De Bruyne link up on the right and play their way into the box, but Benctancur's back in cover to dispossess De Bruyne and wins a throw-in for Spurs in the process.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:32

The hosts have had a slight switch-up in formation over the course of this first half, resembling more of a 4-3-1-2 with Maddison dropping into the midfield line and Sarr playing as an advanced number 10, behind the front two of Son and Johnson.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:30

Bentancur is found in space down the right and hita a first-time cross into the middle, but Dias gets in between the runs of Maddison and Sarr to put the ball behind for a Spurs corner.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:27

CHANCE!! Van de Ven's throughball down the touchline suddenly releases Bentancur on the left-hand side, but his early cross into the box is missed by Johnson and Porro's heavy touch means he can't make anything of the rebound!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:26

Dragusin sets off on a brave run out of defence and immediately runs into City-shaped traffic, but he's caught late in a challenge from Kovacic and wins a fortunate free-kick for the hosts.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:24

Walker finds plenty of open pasture to run into yet again, and is found by Foden's low throughball. The City skipper drills a low cutback across the face, but no-one can get there before Romero, who clears!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:23

Foden plays Haaland into space down the middle, running at the Spurs defence, but he's shrugged off the ball from behind following a fair challenge from Dragusin!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:22

Maddison's delivery is met by a glancing header from Romero which is closer to the corner flag than the goal itself, and Son is crowded out by two City defenders while trying to keep the chance alive on the byline.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:20

BLOCKED!!! Son, Bentancur and Sarr all combine on the edge of the box to create shooting space for Johnson, but his low strike from the right is blocked behind for a corner by Gvardiol!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:20

SAVED!!! Almost a calamity at the back for the hosts!! Rodri's deflected ball into the box appears to be under control as Hojbjerg goes to clear it, but the Dane's air-swing sends it straight into the path of Foden, whose volley from close range is somehow kept out thanks to a brilliant reflex save from Vicario!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:18

Fodens intial corner sees Dias head wide via a deflection, and the second is punched out of the goalmouth by Vicario as Spurs clear their lines!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:16

CHANCE!!! Foden releases Walker into acres of space and the City captain races into the box. He cuts back looking for the continuing run of Foden, but Hojbjerg gets there first and hacks the ball behind for a corner!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:16

Rodri looks for the run of Walker again down the right-hand side, but the hard-running right-back can only keep the ball in play by gifting Spurs a throw-in.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:14

Tottenham have lost their final home league game in two of the last three Premier LEague seasons, as many times as they had in their previous 17 campaigns!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:12

Sarr does brilliantly to take down a Tottenham clearance and burst over halfway. He beats Akanji down the left touchline too, but an inside ball to play in Son is cut out by the Swiss City defender.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:12

BLOCKED!!! Rodri spots Walker surging in behind the defence and finds him with a clipped pass over the top. The City captain has De Bruyne in support, but the Belgian's first-time shot in the box takes a wicked deflection off Van de Ven to skew the ball behind, and then the offside flag is raised to give Spurs some respite!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:09

SAVED!!!! What an early opening for the hosts!!! A fantastic switch of play from Hojbjerg sends Johnson racing down the right, and he passes inside to Bantancur. The Uruguayan sets himself before shooting left-footed, but Ederson's there to palm the ball over the bar!!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:08

City look to exploit space down the left as a cross-field pass finds Gvardiol over halfway, but Foden can't quitw wriggle away from three successive challenges and Romero wins the ball back.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:05

Haaland and Romero wrestle for a bouncing ball with space for the Norwegian to run in behind the Spurs defence, but after he comes away with it, the referee blows for a foul against the Manchester City striker.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:04

In a very worrying omen for the defending champions, Tottenham have won each of their last four Premier League home games against Manchester City – without conceding a single goal.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:02

It'll be Sarr to kick the game off for Spurs, and he does so to get one of the final matches of this Premier League season up and running in north London!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

20:01

Spurs’ win probability stands at just 20.3 per cent before kick-off, compared to City’s huge 54.7 per cent, but as the players trudge out onto the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium pitch, it’s worth remembering that when these two face off against one another – expect the unexpected!

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:52

There’s just the one change for Manchester City, and it comes in defence, with Kyle Walker replacing the benched Nathan Ake and donning the captain’s armband too. He’s at right-back, while on the left side of the Citizens’ defence, Josko Gvardiol starts having scored twice against Fulham in a 4-0 victory for the Blues on Saturday. Phil Foden netted both against Spurs in the reverse fixture and last time out at Craven Cottage, so he'll be keen to continue the best season of his career and put Spurs to the sword once more.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:48

With Yves Bissouma out injured and Oliver Skipp and Dejan Kulusevski both dropping to the bench, Ange Postecoglou makes three changes to his Tottenham side. Micky van de Ven, who scored the winner against Burnley on Saturday, shifts to left-back with Radu Dragusin slotting into central defence, while Rodrigo Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg both step in to bolster the midfield alongside Pape Sarr.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:42

MANCHESTER CITY SUBS: Stefan Ortega, John Stones, Nathan Ake, Jack Grealish, Jeremy Doku, Julian Alvarez, Matheus Nunes, Oscar Bobb, Rico Lewis.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:37

As we’ve come to expect in the last few years, Pep Guardiola’s City side enter this game in absolutely imperious form. They’ve not lost since early December and have won their last seven straight matches – all by two goals or more. If they make it eight in a row with another three points against Spurs, they’ll go above Tottenham’s bitter rivals Arsenal at the top of the table ahead of the season’s final round of fixtures.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:32

It’s a must-win match for Tottenham too, though, who simply have to take maximum points from this game if they’re to have any chance of beating Aston Villa to fourth place on the final day. Spurs snapped a four-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over Burnley last time out, relegating the Clarets in the process, but now face an entirely different proposition in the form of Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

19:32

Hello, and welcome to live coverage of this fixture in the Premier League. It’s the penultimate match of the season for both hosts Tottenham and defending champions Manchester City, who can put themselves in pole position to win a fourth successive title if they claim all three points in north London.
