Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Man City in the Premier League
Tottenham were only able to pick up a 2-2 draw against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League this week. The Lilywhites now turn their attention to the mouth-watering clash against league leaders Manchester City in the Premier League.
The Cityzens are yet to be beaten this season and will be an extremely tough opponent for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Dele Alli is back from his injury and is available for selection. Victor Wanyama has also returned from his injury. However, Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are still out.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
The goalkeeper was sent off in midweek and will be hoping for a better performance against Manchester City.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Trippier’s supply will be absolutely vital in this game.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
The Colombian should continue at the back with Jan Vertonghen still out injured.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
The Belgian should partner Sanchez at the back. He has been splendid for Spurs this season.
Ben Davies (LB)
Though Davies’ form has slightly dipped this season, the left-back is very much capable of turning up against the Cityzens.
Eric Dier (RCM)
After making a shaky start to the season, Dier has looked much better over the last few weeks.
Mousa Dembele (LCM)
Pochettino will be glad to have Dembele back in the squad. His all-action style of play will be crucial against Manchester City.
Lucas Moura (RAM)
The Brazilian returned to the scoresheet against PSV in midweek. He should keep his place for this game as well.
Christian Eriksen (CAM)
Eriksen could play in his preferred position and dictate the play for Spurs. His passing has to be immaculate in this game.
Erik Lamela (LAM)
Lamela has been a renewed player this year. He should return to the line-up in place of Son Heung-Min.
Harry Kane (ST)
Kane scored in mid-week and will be aiming to get one over the champions on Monday.
