Manchester City are hurting at this moment in time, Pep Guardiola has admitted as much.

How they exited the Champions League at the hands of Tottenham in midweek will have rocked their confidence considerably.

This is the biggest test of the character of this Manchester City squad for some time. It will be fascinating to see how they respond to it.

A quick third meeting with Spurs offers them a chance at instant revenge and the opportunity to show that their European heartbreak won’t affect their title defence.
