Manchester City team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester City's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester City take on Tottenham Hotspur in North London this Saturday as Premier League football returns after the international break.

Pep Guardiola's side went into the two-week break off the back of a 1-1 draw at home to champions Liverpool - a result which which was just enough to sneak them into the top half of the table.

However, City are now unbeaten in nine games across all competitions and have a game in hand over most other teams in the league, so victory over a high-flying Spurs side this weekend would be another step towards restoring their title credentials.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of their latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Raheem Sterling picked up a calf injury in training with England during the international break and was subsequently released back to Man City ahead of Wednesday's win over Iceland. The problem is not thought to be too serious, although he is a doubt for this match.
