Tottenham Hotspur will lock horns with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium this Saturday evening as they look to secure a good result on the road. Spurs managed to pick up an impressive 2-0 win over Olympique Marseille in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this contest.

Antonio Conte will set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to his first XI for this game. Both Dejan Kulusevski and Ben Davies could play from the start while Richarlison and Clement Lenglet drop to the bench.

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

Defence

Hugo Lloris will operate in between the sticks for Spurs after he kept a clean sheet versus Marseille in midweek. Conte could name a back three of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier and Ben Davies for this game. They will all have to work hard collectively to stop the Man City attackers from wreaking havoc this weekend.

Clement Lenglet will have to settle for a place on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back positions.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodri Bentacur will anchor the midfield for Conte’s side as they look to stop Man City from creating too many chances during the game.

Ivan Perisic could get another chance to shine as the left wing-back while Emerson Royal hopes to catch the eye down the right flank. Both of them need to be at their best so that Tottenham has a chance of securing something at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.

Matt Doherty and Ryan Sessegnon will be named on the bench but might come on to influence the game in the latter stages of the game if required.

Attack

Heung-min Son will function as the left-winger for Spurs. The South Korea international has made a slow start to this campaign and would be eager to impress against the reigning champions of England this weekend.

Dejan Kulusevski might get the nod to operate on the right wing. Harry Kane will lead the line for the North London outfit in the final third. The English centre-forward will once again be Conte’s best hope for a goal this Saturday evening.

Richarlison will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to shine as a substitute if Spurs are in need of a goal late in the game.
