Manchester City heads to Tottenham in the English Premier League on Sunday, seeking to build on a promising start and reduce the chances of its opponent challenging for the top four.

While big-spending City has won its two opening matches to share the lead with defending champion Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, Spurs lost their only game so far and could be seven points behind the Champions League qualifying spots by the end of the weekend.

City is likely to give Samir Nasri his debut against Tottenham, against whom he scored four goals in three games for Arsenal last season. But Spurs will be unable to do likewise with Emmanuel Adebayor after signing him on loan because league rules prohibit him from playing against his parent club.
