It's not just a matter of bagging three points, but the winner of the Manchester City and Tottenham biggest fixture will be sending a huge warning to all the rivals about their credentials.

For Spurs, the game is a perfect barometer of the improvement the squad may have made since losing the Champions League final, while a win for the Cityzens could puncture all the lingering hopes of the likes of Liverpool, that Pep Guardiola's team will be a force too big to handle all season.

  • Riyad Mahrez
  • Kevin De Bruyne

Likely to score:

  • For Manchester City: Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling
  • For Tottenham Hotspur: Harry Kane, Lucas Moura

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Raheem Sterling: Improvement is what he has been showing every season. his goal scoring rate is increasing, his overall influence too big for any player on Guardiola's roster. He started the season with a bang, scoring a hattrick in the opening fixture.

Last season:

  • Games: 49
  • Goals: 24
  • Assists: 12

Harry Kane: The 26-year-old was equally impressive in Spurs' season opener against Aston Villa. The 26-year-old scored twice and will be looking to add more as he seeks for a win at the home of the rivals.

Last season:

  • Games: 43
  • Goals: 23
  • Assists: 07

Kevin De Bruyne: The Belgian is a class above most of his peers. After missing the large chunk of the last season, the 28-year-old will be eager to make amends for the lost time.

Last season:

  • Games: 23
  • Goals: 02
  • Assists: 06

Riyad Mahrez: The Former Leicester City player was the man of the match for City last weekend. Not only he scored once and set up two more, but the Premier League player of the year winner was too hot o handle despite West Ham swarming around him to nullify his threat.

Last season:

  • Games: 40
  • Goals: 11
  • Assists: 08

Christien Eriksen: Arguably Spurs' most gifted player. He made an immediate impact off the bench in the last game and can hurt City with his passing.

Last season:

  • Games: 50
  • Goals: 12
  • Assists: 16

Suggested combination:

MCI vs TOT Dream11 potential winner:
Manchester City will start the game as favourites.
