Pep Guardiola expects City and Tottenham to play out another entertaining, attack-minded encounter on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides met in the Champions League in midweek, contesting a pulsating seven-goal thriller at the Etihad Stadium, which the Premier League Champions edged.

Hailing both teams' attacking prowess, Guardiola predicts another scintillating contest, as the pair meet once again in the Premier League in a lunchtime kick-off.

"Both teams are going to attack," he asserted. "Them in their way - long balls to Llorente or Moura, second balls attacked by Ramsey... in the channels inside and outside.

"They have good technique and are good at set-pieces, and if one moment, we miss the ball, the people upfront will run.

"We are going to attack in a more positional game but attacking against Spurs is not easy. They are an incredible, top team as you've seen in the last games, but we are going to try."
