Alex Tettey does amazingly well to see off the challenges of three Spurs players in his own half there, battling through and passing it wide. Brilliant energy from the Norwegian.
It ends with Leroy stumbling under a challenge near the Spurs box. Nothing given. Nothing asked for either - it would have been a soft one.
Spurs knocking it about near the City 18-yard line, keeping possession very well. But now City break after a delicious upfield ball from Yobo...
Leroy Fer is harrying that Spurs midfield like a terrier at the moment. Fair to say he's up for this, as per his tweet last night...
"We are Totton, we are Totton," sing the away fans, somewhat surprisingly. Unless I'm mishearing that.
Snoddy whips it in, Bassong gets to it but heads it over.
City pressure leads to a corner for the home side.
Nacer Chadli comes on, replacing Capoue, who hobbles off very slowly indeed.
The sparring between home and away fans is as vibrant as the action on the pitch at the moment. Neither team able to unlock the stramashy midfield at present.
City forcing the issue again. RVW does his best to head a slightly over-hit cross back into the mixer, but Lloris collects easily.
Stamash is a scottish word. It means quite busy. Probably.
It's a midfield stramash. City and Spurs have both loaded it up, and Redmond terrier-like in the middle of it all.
Bentaleb gets down on the slide to block what was almost a great break from City.
OOOH! RVW almost... aaaaalmost... flicks the ball in from the corner after Spurs fail to clear. But it's a goal kick.
City force an early corner. All as John Hurt watches on. He's friendly with Delia Smith and has been to a few games now. He's a fan now.
And we're off! Come on, City!!
It is buzzing at Carrow Road. And some.
What are your thoughts on a start for RVW?
Our team news is brought to you by Lotus Cars. Lotus have positioned a very nice car in their shop space at Carrow Road. You should check it out. Although to be honest I've got my eye on that one. That's why I'm telling you about how awesome Lotus Cars are. I shall be rewarded.
Team news in a few minutes. How would you like to see us line up against Spurs?
Aviva have given up their shirt sponsorship in support of Railway Children today, as well as putting the charity front and centre around the stadium, including the pitchside LED hoardings.
We're on TV this afternoon of course. With any luck that's another reason to keep it loud and proud in the stands throughout.
So Spurs come to town in hot form, bagging goals for fun and with the whole world and its dog expecting a handsome victory at Carrow Road. But then that's what Man City thought. Welcome to game day!
How do you think Saturday's result affects the rest of the season, and what would you like to hear from the gaffer at his press conference this morning?
