As Manchester City travels to Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, they will be looking to start their Premier League championship defense with a win.
City broke the British transfer record by adding England international Jack Grealish to the squad that won the Premier League title last season, but Pep Guardiola's side has yet to make their biggest move as they seek Tottenham attacker Harry Kane.
The Premier League champions have failed to replace Sergio Aguero, the club's all-time leading scorer, despite Kane apparently pushing for the deal to be completed this summer.
Guardiola's side lost to Leicester in the Community Shield final last week, but they could welcome back a number of first-team players.
Grealish is expected to make his City debut after joining from Aston Villa for PS100 million, but Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden remain doubts.
Here's everything you need to know about today's Premier League encounter.

What's new with the team?
During Saturday's training session, Spurs boss Nuno will decide if Kane will play, while newcomers Bryan Gil and Cristian Romero, who suffered an injury at the Copa America, will also be inspected.
After recovering from a minor injury sustained in Sunday's pre-season friendly against Arsenal, Japhet Tanganga should be ready.
Raheem Sterling, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Ederson, and Gabriel Jesus might all return for City after missing the Community Shield final on Saturday, while Kevin De Bruyne is doubtful and Phil Foden is out due to injuries received at the Euros this summer.
Tottenham: Lloris; Tanganga; Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Winks, Hojbjerg; Lucas, Dele, Bergwijn; Son Manchester City: Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Mendy; Gundogan, Rodri, Grealish; Mahrez, Torres, Sterling
While City have the deepest roster in the Premier League, they have seven first-team players who have only returned this week or are unavailable owing to their participation in international tournaments this summer.
Guardiola's starting lineup this afternoon, however, is likely to be stronger than Spurs' - and this is a club that is used to winning in the Premier League.

Rob Page admits Gareth Bale's return to the Real Madrid fold is a "bonus" after the Wales caretaker manager named his 27-man squad for the upcoming international break. Wales travel to Finland for a friendly on September 1 before resuming their World Cup qualifying campaign against Belarus - in Russia - four days later. You want all your players playing competitive football when they come on camp," Page told Sky Sports News. Bale dismissed talk he would retire from international football after Wales' last-16 exit to Denmark at the Euros, and Page said there have been no discussions with the 32-year-old regarding his future. "It's great that he's starting again and back in the thoughts of the manager which is brilliant," Page added.
W illian is closing in on a move to Corinthians as Arsenal look to offload players before the transfer window shuts next week. Arsenal are keen to trim their squad further before the August 31 deadline and Willian is one of those who can leave. The Brazilian, who joined Arsenal from Chelsea on a free transfer last summer, has slipped down the pecking order at Emirates Stadium. Talks with Corinthians are at an advanced stage and there is optimism a deal will be done before the transfer window shuts. Kolasinac is another player Arsenal would be happy to offload, but his £100,000-a-week wages could prove a stumbling block.
Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba will follow in Gerard Pique's footsteps and take a significant pay cut to help the club ease off some of their financial burden, according to reports from ESPN. However, things seem to be heading in the right direction after Gerard Pique decided to voluntarily reduce this wage to help Barcelona register new signings Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay along with Rey Manaj. Jordi Alba has become the second Barcelona player to accept a pay cut to help the Catalan giants balance their books. However, some reports claim that Alba is set to take a 25% pay cut on his existing salary. Two other long serving players in Sergi Roberto and Sergio Busquets are set to follow Pique and Alba and could take a pay cut in the near future.
