Manchester City will play hosts to Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back from their midweek disappointment when they were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Spurs on the away goals ruling.
Pep Guardiola will be desperate to get some revenge, so this home match versus the North London outfit could be an ideal chance for Man City to stamp their authority in the Premier League title race.
The home team will lineup in a 4-3-3 formation with both John Stones and Leroy Sane set to start this encounter versus Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup To Face Tottenham Hotspur
Ederson will start in goal for the Citizens despite conceding three goals against Spurs in midweek. The Brazilian keeper will be supported by the centre-half duo of John Stones and Aymeric Laporte as they try to deal with the threat of Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura on Saturday.
Kyle Walker will feature as the right-back once again while Benjamin Mendy gets a start on the other side in the absence of Oleksander Zinchenko who is a major doubt for this upcoming league encounter.
Guardiola would need his defenders to be playing their best football so that his side can continue their march towards retaining the Premier League title at the end of this campaign.
Pep Guardiola might opt for the midfield three of Kevin De Bruyne, Fernandinho and Bernardo Silva as the talented trio will be able to dominate possession in midfield and create chances for the front players.
All three of them have enjoyed a rich vein of form in recent matches so their performance on Saturday will be crucial in determining the outcome of this contest.
The Citizens may line up with the frontline of Leroy Sane, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling. Both Sane and Sterling will provide the width on the flanks while Aguero looks to get his name on the scoresheet while operating as the centre-forward.
Riyad Mahrez and David Silva might have to settle for a spot on Guardiola’s bench, but they could come on to make an impact in the second half.
