It's over! Gabriel Jesus is angry at Oliver for disallowing the goal, but from the replay it was the right decision. City have dominated the game and only drawn it 2-2, and will have a keen sense of deja vu in the way their injury time celebrations against Spurs were taken away by VAR for the second time in five months.

Frenetic stuff in an angry stadium now. Sterling's shot is blocked away for a City corner.
City thought they'd won it! A De Bruyne corner from the right skims off Laporte through to Gabriel Jesus, who takes one touch to make an angle and then curls it around a mesh of bodies and into the net. It's VAR reviewed as City celebrate, and Oliver chalks it off as it hit Laporte's hand as it bounced through to Jesus. It's happened again to City!
Skipp replaces Eriksen for Tottenham. There will be a minimum of four additional minutes.
Zinchenko whips a ball into the area but there's a foul in the area and a free kick is awarded to Spurs.
Zinchenko is back on but he's not moving too smoothly. City are getting a lot of ball to Mahrez, but he coughs it up twice in a row to groans from the City faithful.
Giovani Lo Celso is coming on for Tottenham, replacing Lamela.
Zinchenko has gone down here, clasping his hamstring. City have used all their substitutes here, this could be a problem if he can't continue.
Spurs have dropped very deep here, and look like they'd be fine with earning a point. Can City break them down in what time remains, or could City sucker punch them again?
The final change for City, as Mahrez replaces Bernardo Silva.
A half chance for Gabriel Jesus, as he rises first to a deflected De Bruyne cross but can't direct his header on target.
Another change for City, David SIlva is on for Rodri.
Danger for City here. Moura outpaces Zinchenko to a loose ball, gets in behind the defender and whips in a dangerous low ball that City put out for a corner. It's cleared, and a quick City break falls down when De Bruyne's through ball catches the heel of a teammate.
Danny Rose heads behind a long cross from Zinchenko, and City win a corner. They take it short, but nothing comes from it.
CHANCE FOR CITY! A wonderful clipped ball from Bernardo Silva finds Jesus in the area. He chests it past Walker-Peters when he might have headed the ball at goal, but can't connect properly with his volley and it trickles wide from six yards.
Gabriel Jesus barrel into the Spurs area and gets a shot away, which is deflected over for a corner. There was a pass on to Bernardo Silva there, who was in acres of space to his right.
There were a few heated words between Guardiola and Aguero as that substitution took place; Aguero is not happy at being hooked, and Guardiola will be wondering how they are drawing a game they've dominated for the most part.
A change for City, as Gabriel Jesus replaces Aguero.
De Bruyne's corner finds Aguero, whose glanced header is boot out of the six yard box by Rose. That was on target, though Lloris may have had it covered.
Walker-Peters is robbed by Sterling, who cuts into the area but his shot is blocked. Rodri then launches one from twenty yards, which Lloris tips over for a corner. From said corner, a punched clearance from Lloris breaks to Bernardo Silva, who hooks a shot onto the bar and Lloris regathers. Phew!
Kane gets a bit giddy, trying to lob Ederson from 50 yards but miscuing it completely. What a substitution that was from Pochettino.
GOAL! Manchester City 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2 (Moura 56)
Another goal from nothing for Spurs! Lamela whips the corner in to the front post and Moura, with his first touch, glances his header past Ederson to bring Spurs level!
Spurs get some welcome possession and win a corner. They also make a change; Lucas Moura comes on for Harry Winks.
Spurs are rocking here. A deflected pass falls to Bernardo Silva, who can only shoot meekly at Lloris with the goal gaping; almost immediately, a beautifully lazy pass from De Bruyne releases Sterling into the area, and Lloris gets out just in time to smother his shot.
City play out brilliantly, all the way from Ederson via a number of players before Sterling releases Aguero into the area. He lashes his shot over the bar.
A lovely lay-off from Aguero finds De Bruyne. He cuts in from the right and opens his body out to hit a low drive at goal, but it's well wide.
From another short corner City work the ball to De Bruyne. He whips another wicked ball into the area, which Lloris punches clear.
Good work by De Bruyne wins a corner for City. They take it short, Zinchenko eventually gets a shot away from distance, which catches a deflection on the way through. Lloris does well to parry it away.
Rose picks up a loose ball on the left, he tries to find Kane in the middle but the cross is intercepted by Ederson. Kane has been anonymous thus far.
City are out of the traps quickly again, as a low Kyle Walker cross is smothered by Lloris.
We're underway again, no changes for either side.
That's all for the first half. Three goals and plenty of entertaining fare so far, it's hard to believe we'll not get more of the same in the second half.
De Bruyne harries Lloris as he tries to play out from the back, and almost nicks possession for City. He is all over this game right now.
There will be two added minutes.
Zinchenko tests Lloris now, but his curled, twenty-yard shot doesn't have enough pace to trouble the goalkeeper.
CLOSE! Brilliant play from De Bruyne again. From the same right hand position from which he's provided both goals, a laser-guided pass fizzes across the Spurs area and finds Gundogan, who stabs his shot just wide from twelve yards with Lloris beaten.
After a momentary lapse City's swagger seems to be back. A rat-a-tat of passes between Sterling, Aguero and Bernardo Silva traverses the Spurs area, but Silva spoons his cross straight at Lloris.
De Bruyne is having quite a half here. He gets in on the right side of the Spurs area, but yahoos a wild shot into the stands.
GOAL! Manchester City 2 (Aguero 35) Tottenham Hotspur 1
Another one for City! De Bruyne gets free on the righjust outside the penalty area, and drills an unstoppable low ball into the six yard box. Aguero arrives right on cue to tuck it past Lloris and restore City's lead.
Tottenham look dangerous on the break suddenly. A couple of promising situations break down when they fail to locate the right pass.
A slight lull now after the quick hit of goals. Tottenham have settled into possession and it feels a much more even game.
Tottenham are knocking it around confidently now. Both goals seem to have really woken them up, especially their own.
Sterling goes in the book after cynically tripping Winks when he threatens to break away down the right.
GOAL! Manchester City 1 Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Lamela 23)
Where did that come from? Spurs respond instantly, with Ndombele finding Lamela in space just outside the penalty area. City have switched off completely, and Lamela strokes a low shot past Ederson to level it up!
GOAL! Manchester City 1 (Sterling 20) Tottenham Hotspur 0
What a superb header from Raheem Sterling! Bernardo Silva lays the ball back to De Bruyne on the right. His whipped, first-time cross to the back post is perfect, and Sterling arrives to thunder a header back across Lloris and into the corner.
Better again from Tottenham, with Walker-Peters running the ball fifty yards deep into City's half. Unfortunately for Spurs, Sissoko strays offside and it's pulled back.
Kane leads a quick break for Tottenham, their best move of the match so far. He shifts it right to Sissoko, but Lamela can't make a decent connection with the cross and City clear.
Sterling cuts his way to the Spurs byline on the left, but his cutback ricochets away off Aguero for a goal kick.
The replay shows Lamela might have got away with one there; he was effectively hugging Rodri as they fell, and not even looking at the ball.
City are making hay down the left at the moment, and win a couple of quick corners in succession. The latter produces a penalty appeal as Rodri goes down under a challenge from Lamela, but it's waved away.
Tottenham have a much needed bout of possession, but a long ball over the top is too far ahead of Kane.
Half a chance for City. Kyle Walker gets away down the right, and into the Spurs area; he cuts it back to Sterling, whose shot is blocked and deflects out for a corner.
Zinchenko fires a long ball over the top to Sterling, but he's offside.
Tottenham are penned back already here, with City working it across all areas of the pitch but with no real penetration yet. Early sparring.
City's rhythmic early possession is broken up when Gundogan clips Walker-Peters and gives away a free-kick. There's a crackling atmosphere here, and the match has started at a lively old pace.
Peep peep, we're off!
Blue Moon and the handshakes are all done, we're almost underway...
The captains Kevin De Bruyne and Hugo Lloris are ready to lead out the teams. Your referee this evening is Michael Oliver. It’s time!
The subtext to today’s game will not be any recent domestic dust-ups, but the epic second leg of the Champions League quarter-final between these two at the Etihad in April. Manchester City were 3-2 up after 21 minutes, eventually won 4-3 but missed out on a place in the semi-finals when an injury time goal by Raheem Sterling was ruled out as offside by VAR. Spurs progressed on away goals. Could we possibly get anything as dramatic today?
If Tottenham are to kick on and become genuine title contenders this season, they need to toughen up on the road. They won 11 and lost eight on their travels last season as Liverpool and Manchester City steadily pulled away from them. A win or even a result here could be a huge step in the right direction – they last won here in the Premier League in 2016.
Manchester City could scarcely have made a more chilling start to their quest for a hat-trick of Premier League titles. Their 5-0 evisceration of West Ham at London Stadium was a warning shot to the rest of the league. Today is an early test of their 2019-20 credentials. They’ve won their last fifteen Premier League games; can anyone stop them?
Just one change for Tottenham from their 3-1 win at home to Aston Villa last week – Christian Eriksen, heavily rumoured to be leaving the club, returns to the starting XI in place of Lucas Moura.
City ring the changes; Stones, David Silva, Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus don’t start today, replaced by Laporte, Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Aguero. That’s some strength in depth.
