Manchester City will clash heads with Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday looking to extend their two-match winning streak across all competitions. The Citizens are currently leading the Premier League table due to a superior goal difference and would need to gain maximum points from this contest if they want to consolidate their place at the top. However, it won’t be an easy feat as Spurs are quite strong at home and will not give up without a proper fight.
Pep Guardiola is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and might bring back Sergio Aguero for this encounter after he was rested in midweek.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Tottenham Hotspur
Barring any late injuries, Ederson should start in goal for the Citizens while Arijanet Muric has to be content with a place on the bench. The Brazilian shot-stopper has kept three clean sheets in a row which has been an impressive feat.
The excellent defensive duo of Aymeric Laporte and John Stones would line up in central defence as it is clear that they have Guardiola’s vote of confidence due to their ball-playing abilities. Benjamin Mendy is expected to feature at left-back as he looks to use his quickness and power to make runs behind the Tottenham defence. Kyle Walker will also do the same down the right flank.
Man City will have a great opportunity to lay down a marker for the rest of the league with a win at Spurs on Sunday, so their defenders need to be at their A game if they want to neutralise the goal-threat of Harry Kane.
The trio of Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva and David Silva could get the nod to start at the centre of the park. Both Bernardo Silva and David Silva have been amongst the goals in recent weeks so we can expect them to be a significant threat going forward.
Keven De Bruyne is slowly nursing his way back from injury and could feature from the bench if required.
Pep Guardiola’s front three would consist of Sergio Aguero spearheading the City attack while Raheem Sterling looks to use his pace and guile down the left-hand side of the Citizens frontline. Riyad Mahrez could start on the right flank and would hope to get the better of Tottenham’s Ben Davies.
Leroy Sane could be available on the bench and might come on during the contest if required.
