      Walker hits the deck with cramp, so we may have a little bit extra of time added on here.
    • 90'
      Zabaleta makes a crucial hold on Rose to stop him breaking past the full-back on a counter. The England man responds by giving him a shove after the fact, handing the hosts a free-kick.

      The crowd are urging City forward, but there's a lack of urgency from Guardiola's men.

      Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
    • 0'
      Mauricio Pochettino will be by far the happier of the two managers given that his side were nowhere near the best, while Pep Guardiola will be disappointed that his team could not convert an excellent display into three points.
    • 0'
      Both sides earn a share of the spoils this evening at the Etihad Stadium, but Manchester City will feel hard done by as Raheem Sterling was denied a penalty mere seconds before Tottenham scored their equaliser.
    • 0'
    • 0'
      The players are back out for the second half.
    • 0'
      Tottenham have been below-par and have barely threatened the City goal. That may prompt Mauricio Pochettino into changes at the break.
    • 0'
      It's all square the break, but Manchester City will wonder how they are not ahead in the contest. Pep Guardiola's men have dominated the match and have come close to opening the scoring on several occasions, but have not managed to breach Hugo Lloris' goal.
    • 0'
    • 0'
      The players are making their way out on to the pitch, so we should be underway shortly.
    • 0'
      STAT ATTACK! City have won five out of their last six home matches against Spurs. Their only defeat came last season when Pochettino's men claimed a 2-1 win.
    • 0'
      STAT ATTACK! Tottenham have not won seven games in a row since May 1967. They can equal that feat today with a win over Guardiola's men.
    • 0'
      Pochettino makes one change from the side that cruised to a 4-0 win over West Brom last time out. It's enforced due to Jan Vertonghen's ankle injury, as Kevin Wimmer gets the nod over Ben Davies to start in the back three at the Etihad.
    • 0'
      Gabriel Jesus is an option off the bench for Guardiola to make his first appearance for the club. Vincent Kompany also returns to the squad this afternoon.
    • 0'
      City have made two changes from their hammering at the hands of Everton last week. John Stones is dropped, with Aleksandar Kolarov replacing him in the back four, while Leroy Sane comes into the side for Bacary Sagna.

      The team news has been announced and we'll start with the home side.
    • 0'
      Spurs were the first side to defeat Guardiola's City with a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane. Pochettino will be hopeful that his side can reproduce their form of that day to maintain their excellent form of late.
    • 0'
      Mauricio Pochettino's men were outstanding in their 4-0 win over West Brom last week, winning their sixth top-flight match on the bounce.
    • 0'
      Tottenham are on a surge to catch Chelsea at the top of the table and appear the only club able to prevent Antonio Conte's men from running away with the crown.
    • 0'
      Pep Guardiola has conceded that his side are out of contention for the Premier League and a defeat to Spurs would only affirm his comments.
    • 0'
      City are in dire need of a win today to get their season back on track after being hammered by Everton last week.
    • 0'
      Good afternoon and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Manchester City and Tottenham at the Etihad Stadium.
    • 1'
      We're underway at the Etihad Stadium.
    • 2'
      A slip from Zabaleta allows Rose to break in down the left, but his cross flashes across the face of goal without finding a team-mate.
    • 3'
      Kane just mistimes his run behind the City defence as Rose launched a ball over the top. The home side are playing a high line.
    • 5'
      Sane releases the run of Clichy down the left, but Walker tracks his run all the way and is able to block his attempted cross.
    • 6'
      Otamendi tries an ambitious strike from 40 yards as no Tottenham player closes him down, but his effort sails well wide of the target.
    • 7'
      De Bruyne releases Sterling's run in behind the Spurs backline, but Rose covers ground to stop the strike at goal. The England man's eventual cross is cleared away by Wimmer.
    • 8'
      City gather the ball and Silva strikes the ball from a tight angle, but his effort slams into the side-netting, although Lloris had the post covered anyway.
    • 10'
      Eriksen and Walker attempt to link up down the right, but the full-back just goes too early for the Dane's pass and is flagged offside.
    • 11'
      CHANCE! Aguero and De Bruyne combine in the final third with the latter teeing up Zabaleta in the box, but the Argentine gets in the way of his team-mate and the ball skews wide of the post.
    • 12'
      Wimmer wipes out Zabaleta as he tries to break free and is penalised by referee Marriner.
    • 12'
      OVER! Wimmer is caught in possession at the back and Zabaleta wins the ball. Aguero collects on the edge of the box, and hammers his strike just over the bar.
    • 13'
      Dier gives away a free-kick for pulling back Aguero and is booked in the process by Marriner.
    • 14'
      From the resulting free-kick, Otamendi latches on to De Bruyne's ball over the top, but Wimmer just manages to clear the ball away in the six-yard box.
    • 15'
      City are turning the screw in the early stages and Tottenham are fortunate to clear their lines from another set-piece after Silva was fouled by Alli.
    • 16'
      Better pressing from Spurs as they force the home side all the way back to Bravo and are able to win a free-kick when City come forward again as Walker is caught by Sane.
    • 17'
      Walker hobbles around after being caught by Sane. However, he should be able to run that knock off.
    • 19'
      City are looking the more settled of the two teams at the moment. Spurs have struggled to get going in the final third, with the home side enjoying possession in the middle of the park.
    • 20'
      SAVE! Spurs back off Silva 25 yards from goal inviting him to shoot. He powers a low effort towards the bottom corner, but Lloris gets down to palm the ball past the post.
    • 21'
      WIDE! De Bruyne tees up Zabaleta for a strike on the edge of the box from the corner. He meets the ball on the half-volley with his left foot and his effort appears to be heading towards the bottom corner, only to spin away from the target at the last second.
    • 22'
      A heart-stopping moment for City fans as Bravo is forced to race off his line to gather ahead of Eriksen. The Chilean just reels the ball into his grasp just inside the line.
    • 24'
      Tottenham earn their first chance to threaten, but Eriksen opts to play the ball short from a corner to Dembele. The Belgian goes for the strike, but Sane makes the block and attempts to counter.
    • 26'
      Alderweireld sends the ball forward from the back and Alli makes a desperate surge to race on to it. However, Bravo is able to let the ball bounce into his grasp ahead of the England man.
    • 27'
      CHANCE! Dier is robbed by Aguero in the final third and De Bruyne seizes possession. He drives into the right inside channel to fire at goal, but he pulls his effort wide of the target.
    • 29'
      Alli chases down a lost cause and wins a corner by knocking the ball off the foot of Otamendi. However, the set-piece comes to nothing for the visitors.
    • 31'
      Spurs are beginning to settle after a tough opening 25 minutes. They've just began to force City back towards the edge of their own box after soaking up the home side's pressure.
    • 32'
      OVER! City's clearance lands as far as Wanyama on the edge of the box, who controls and volleys at goal, but his effort sails well over the bar.
    • 32'
      Dembele sends Rose down the left flank with a neat pass, but a clearing tackle from Otamendi takes the ball away from Alli.
    • 34'
      CHANCE! City catch Spurs on the break and with only two players back, but De Bruyne wastes the initial opening. The home side keep the attack alive and Silva sends the ball to the back post for Sane to head at goal, but he can only send his effort wide.
    • 35'
      Aguero raids into space down the left and has Sterling making a break inside the box, but his cross is gathered by Lloris.
    • 37'
      City's pressing of the Spurs' backline almost pays off as Lloris sells Walker short, but the ball just makes it to the full-back, with Aguero lurking.
    • 38'
      SAVE! City carve open the Spurs defence and Aguero feeds De Bruyne on the right. The space isn't there for the strike so he crosses to the back post for the Argentine, but his header is saved acrobatically by Lloris.
    • 39'
      SAVE! A simple ball over the top releases Aguero, who edges past Alderweireld with a strong run. However, he cannot beat Lloris with a low effort at the near post as the Spurs' keeper turns the ball away.
    • 40'
      CHANCES! Otamendi manages to get behind the Spurs backline and sees his deflected effort loop towards the target and bounce on the top of the net. From the resulting corner Sterling lines up a strike, but Lloris punches the ball away.
    • 41'
      Kane takes the pressure off his defence as he goes down under slight contact from Kolarov. Spurs have been under the cosh throughout the half and will be desperate to head into the break level.
    • 43'
      Tottenham attempt to work the ball in tight spaces on the edge of the box, but the City defence holds firm and forces them back.
    • 44'
      BLOCK! Toure sends a cross to the near post from the left flank which causes havoc in the area. It falls kindly for Sterling to strike with his left foot, but Dier makes a crucial block to stop the shot.
    • 45'
      There will be two minutes of added time.
    • 46'
      SI Heung-Min Son SO K. Wimmer
    • 46'
      Wimmer struggled in the first half and has been replaced by Son at the break.
    • 46'
      We're back underway at the Etihad Stadium.
    • 48'
      Better start to the half from the visitors as they've displayed a more attacking intent, starting with Walker down the right
    • 49'
      G L. Sané Assist K. Wimmer
    • 49'
      GOALL!!!!!! SANE PUTS CITY AHEAD! De Bruyne sends a delightful ball over the top and Sane is unmarked as he surges towards the box. Lloris attempts to clear with his head, but fails to make sufficient contact and it allows the German to seize possession and slot into the empty net.
    • 51'
      Alli sends Otamendi tumbling to the deck with a shove as he attempts to take a free-kick quickly.
    • 52'
      Otamendi is booked for his part in the tussle with Alli.
    • 52'
      Lloris has to scamper off his line to clear the danger as De Bruyne attempts to release Aguero, but this time the Frenchman connects.
    • 54'
      G K. De Bruyne Assist K. Wimmer
    • 54'
      GOALL!!!!! DE BRUYNE FINDS THE NET! City double their lead as Lloris makes another horrendous mistake, this time dropping Sterling's cross right at the feet of the Belgian, who accepts the gift and taps home from close range. A nightmare for the Spurs skipper.
    • 56'
      Spurs raid down the left and Rose fires a low ball into the box, but Kolarov is there at the near post to clear ahead of Kane.
    • 58'
      G D. Alli Assist K. Wimmer
    • 58'
      GOAL!!!!!! ALLI NODS HOME! Spurs are back in the game as Walker latches on to a loose ball down the right and sends a peach of a cross into the box. Kolarov tries to clear at the near post, but cannot get enough on his header and Alli pounces at the back stick, heading into the net.
    • 60'
      OFFSIDE! Alderweireld sends Son over the top and he takes the ball in stride, but the offside flag goes up against the winger. Zabaleta just moved up in time.
    • 62'
      PENALTY SHOUT! De Bruyne threads the ball through to Sterling in the box and he tries to break free of Rose and goes down in a heap with his international team-mate. He wants a penalty, but replays show that the defender made an excellent covering tackle.
    • 63'
      It's all go at the moment in the Etihad Stadium. End-to-end football and surely there are more goals left in this contest.
    • 64'
      A worry for Spurs as Alderweireld is forced off with an injury. That will force a re-shuffle as Wimmer has already come off the pitch.
    • 65'
      SI H. Winks SO K. Wimmer
    • 65'
      Winks gets the nod over Davies to replace Alderweireld - who has a hamstring injury. Wanyama drops back into the defence alongside Dier.
    • 67'
      Silva weaves his way past two challenges and sends Zabaleta into the box with a fine pass with the outside of his foot. However, the full-back sees his effort deflected behind.
    • 68'
      City work the ball well across the pitch to De Bruyne on the right flank. He has options to hit in the middle, but Wanyama clears his cross away at the near post.
    • 71'
      Eriksen has not had one of his better games as he plays a potential throughball to Kane straight into the path of Kolarov.
    • 73'
      Spurs spread the ball from right to left as Winks finds Rose on the flank. The full-back has time to take the ball down and he attempts to fire it across the face of goal, only to scuff his effort out for a goal-kick.
    • 74'
      De Bruyne charges down Rose's clearance and races into the box. However, the Belgian is unable to pick out a team-mate and Spurs can breathe again.
    • 76'
      PENALTY SHOUT! De Bruyne releases Sterling through the middle and he has time to put his effort past Lloris. However, Walker gives him a shove at the last second to put him off his strike as he fires straight at the Spurs keeper. That should have been a spot-kick and a red card.
    • 77'
      G Heung-Min Son Assist K. Wimmer
    • 77'
      Kane slides the ball to Son in the box and the winger does the rest with a fine strike.
    • 77'
      GOAL!!!!!!! SPURS ARE LEVEL! Controversy at the Etihad Stadium as seconds after City are denied a penalty Tottenham go up the pitch and notch their equaliser. Kane finds Son in space in the box and the winger picks his spot, placing his strike into the bottom corner. A fine finish.
    • 78'
      SI M. Sissoko SO K. Wimmer
    • 78'
      Sissoko replaces Dembele for the visitors.
    • 80'
      Spurs are on top now and are asking a lot of questions of the City defence. There's time for another goal or two here.
    • 81'
      Slight hesitation from Bravo as he opts to come for the ball with Eriksen advancing. However, the ball skips off the pitch and lands safely in his grasp.
    • 82'
      SI Gabriel Jesus SO K. Wimmer
    • 82'
      Jesus arrives for his City debut to replace Sterling.
    • 83'
      CHANCE! Jesus almost makes an impact straight off the bench as he fires a low ball across the face of goal, but no-one can connect. De Bruyne gathers on the opposite flank and lifts the ball into the box for the Brazilian to attack, but he guides his effort over the bar.
    • 84'
      SI J. Stones SO K. Wimmer
    • 84'
      Stones replaces Clichy for the home side.
    • 84'
      OFFSIDE! Jesus is denied a dream start to his City career by the offside flag as he turns the ball home at the back post from De Bruyne's cross. Guardiola throws himself to the ground in frustration.
    • 87'
      Wanyama wipes out Aguero in the centre circle and heads into the book.
    • 88'
      Son raids down the left flank for the visitors and has space to operate in, but Sane gets back well to cover ground and quell the opening for Spurs.
    • 90'
      SI F. Delph SO K. Wimmer
    • 90'
      Delph replaces Silva in the dying stages.
    • 90'
