The Nuno Espirito Santo era begins at Tottenham this weekend.
Nuno may have hoped for an easier start to the season than the one afforded to him by the random fixture generator.
Spurs welcome last season’s champions Manchester City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – a fixture they’ve won twice in the past two seasons.
Guardiola has, in fact, his past three visits to the white half of North London. He’s never before lost four successive managers anywhere as a manager.

Spurs vs Man City early team news
While many expected Nuno to impose his 5-2-3 formation on his new Spurs squad, the friendly matches throughout pre-season would suggest otherwise.
Japhet Tanganga is likely to start at right-back. Christian Romero could make his debut provided he has sufficiently recovered from the knee injury he sustained at the Copa America. Santo is more likely to opt for a centre back pairing of Eric Dier and Davison Sanchez.
Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp could both start after featuring heavily in pre-season
The big question mark of course revolves around Harry Kane. The England captain has been training alone throughout the past week and is joining up with the rest of the squad this Friday.
City have a number of players in their squad whose national sides went deep into both the Copa America and European Championships including new £100m signing Jack Grealish.
Phil Foden and Kevin de Bruyne will both miss out through injury.
