Manchester City will welcome Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening as they look to earn all three points in front of their home supporters. The Mancunian giants managed to earn a 5-0 win over Sporting CP in midweek. In contrast, Spurs suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanders last Sunday.

Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will once again opt for the 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his players to dominate possession and engineer enough chances for Man City to win this game.

Antonio Conte might choose to go with the 5-2-3 formation and will probably ask his men to soak in all the pressure and try to catch the opposition off-guard on the counter.

Team News

Manchester City

Jack Grealish is a significant concern ahead of this game. Still, Guardiola should have a strong team available for this contest at home.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Bernardo; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling

Tottenham Hotspur

Japhet Tanganga won’t be available for this game due to injury. Oliver Skipp is a major doubt for this clash. Otherwise, Conte has no other fresh concerns ahead of this game.

Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI

Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Reguilon; Lucas, Kane, Son

Key Men

Manchester City

Kevin De Bruyne is expected to carry most of the creative workload for Man City at the centre of the park. Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva have enjoyed a rich vein of form for Guardiola’s side of late, so they will be eager to make a difference this Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur

Heung-min Son and Harry Kane will need to be at the top of their game if Spurs are to pick up a result this weekend. Both Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur would have to anchor the midfield with conviction so that they can stop some of Man City’s attacks during the 90 minutes.
