It’s going to take something to catch League leaders Manchester City this season. Tottenham host them today (kick-off 2.15pm), looking to put down a marker themselves, and are hot on their heels.

They have the players to mount a credible challenge, too, with the likes of Dele Alli proving last season wasn’t just a one-off. But Spurs’ defeat by Monaco in the Champions League also showed that they need to learn to handle pressure. A win against City would prove they can.
