Tottenham Hotspur will entertain Manchester City at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday night looking to earn three crucial points which will help them consolidate their position in the top 4. Spurs are in terrific form and has tasted victory in each of their last 8 matches across all competitions. They will be confident about their chances of securing a victory versus the Premier League champions-elect this weekend.

Meanwhile, City has suffered three successive defeats which have dumped them out of the UEFA Champions League. They are now looking to bounce back in the league and will know that a victory on Saturday night will take them a step closer towards the league title. Pochettino is expected to stick with his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation and might make some changes for this contest.

4-2-3-1 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester City

Defence

Hugo Lloris could line up in goal for Mauricio Pochettino’s team once again and might be shielded by a back four of Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in central defence while Ben Davies operates in the left-back position and Kieran Trippier plays on the right-hand side of the backline.

The Spurs defence has only conceded 27 goals in 32 league matches this season so it is highly likely that they will keep things tight at the back when they lace up to face the Citizens on Saturday night. Both Danny Rose and Serge Aurier might have to settle for a place on the bench for this encounter.

Midfield

The duo of Eric Dier and Mousa Dembele will line up as the holding midfielders in Spurs’ first-team while the terrific trio of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son could be unleashed in front of them as part of the Tottenham midfield. The trio has been in outstanding form this season and will once again be responsible to create some opportunities and score the goals versus the Citizens defence that has conceded 8 goals in their previous three matches in all competitions.

Erik Lamela will start on the bench and might feature later in the game if required.

Attack

Harry Kane is expected to lead the lines up top for the North London side. He has been in a rich vein of form during the course of this season, scoring 36 goals while creating 4 assists in 41 matches across all competitions. The English striker would look to get his name on the scoresheet versus City and make a significant contribution for Spurs against Pep Guardiola’s team this weekend.
