Manchester City became the first non-London side to win five consecutive Premier League games in the capital, with all wins coming in 2018 (against Arsenal twice, Spurs twice and West Ham).

Two of Tottenham Hotspur’s four Premier League defeats at Wembley have been at the hands of Manchester City.

Manchester City have conceded just three goals in their first 10 Premier League games this season – in top-flight history, only one team have conceded fewer in their first 10 games of a season (Chelsea in 2004-05, two conceded).

Spurs have lost two home Premier League matches in a calendar year against a single opponent for the first time since 2005, when they lost twice against Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

Man City winger Riyad Mahrez has been involved in five goals in his last three Premier League appearances against Tottenham Hotspur (3 goals, 2 assists).

Man City’s Raheem Sterling made his 200th Premier League appearance, aged 23 years and 325 days – only four players have reached the figure at a younger age (Wayne Rooney, James Milner, Cesc Fabregas and Gareth Barry).

Since the start of last season, only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (50) and Spurs striker Harry Kane (38) have been involved in more Premier League goals than Man City’s Raheem Sterling (36 – 22 goals, 14 assists).

Manchester City remain unbeaten in the Premier League when Aymeric Laporte has featured (P19 W17 D2 L0) – the Spaniard has played more Premier League games without losing than any other player in the history of the competition.

Ederson has kept a clean sheet in each of his last six Premier League starts for Man City – he’s the first goalkeeper to achieve this feat since Thibaut Courtois in November 2016 for Chelsea.
