Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Manchester City In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur welcome Champions-elect Manchester City to Wembley, hoping to capitalise on a terrible week for the Cityzens.
Spurs are on a great run in the league and are very close to confirming their place in the Champions League next season, while Manchester City were not able to secure the Premier League title against rivals Manchester United last weekend before crashing out of the Champions League against Liverpool in the quarter-finals.
Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to heap more misery on the league leaders by avenging their 4-1 loss at the Etihad.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
GK – Hugo Lloris
After a disappointing couple of weeks, Lloris will look to bounce back against a side where he will face a lot of shots.
LB – Ben Davies
Although Danny Rose looked solid against Stoke, Ben Davis has taken it up a gear this year and will start for what is a crunch clash.
CB – Jan Vertonghen
The experienced Belgian has been at the heart of the Spurs defence this season and is an important player for Pochettino.
CB – Davinson Sánchez
Has made a few mistakes in his debut Premier League season but has stepped up when Pochettino has needed him most.
RB – Serge Aurier
A feisty character who always puts in a shift for his team, Serge Aurier will be under a lot of pressure from the attacking talents of Manchester City.
DM – Eric Dier
With Victor Wanyama not having much football under his belt this season, it makes sense for Pochettino to bring in Dier, who can try and break up the Manchester City forward play.
CM – Mousa Dembélé
Mousa Dembele is probably the player in the Spurs squad who goes about his business with the least amount of fuss. He’s always comfortable on the ball and he will attempt to release his attackers.
RW – Christian Eriksen
Eriksen should start on the right-wing, but expect to see him pop up all over the pitch as a creative force.
AM – Delle Alli
The talented attacking midfielder will attempt to provide support to Harry Kane and hassle the Manchester City defenders.
LW – Son Heung-Min
The South Korean international has dropped off a little bit in the last few games but has had an incredible season for the North Londoners.
ST – Harry Kane
As Harry Kane attempts to chase down Mo Salah at the top of the goalscoring charts, every goal counts.
