Key quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: "I don’t analyse Spurs’ start – they have good players, a very young team – so I think that Pochettino is doing very good work there and we’ll see how they do at the end of the season.”

Pablo Zabaleta: “They will have been disappointed to lose the derby against Arsenal on Wednesday, but anything can happen in those games. They played a day later than we did but they have a hungry, promising squad and it should be a good game."

Nacer Chadli: “They always have a big side and of course they’ve bought well with some great players, but we have a strong group too and we know we can play good football so we will do our best."

Clinton Nije: City have got some clever players – Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and the others – but I just think we need to make sure we are 100 per cent physically and mentally and everything is going be fine."
