Manchester City will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad on Thursday night, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a 2-0 loss to Arsenal, whereas Pep Guardiola’s men recorded an unfortunate 2-1 loss to arch-rivals Manchester United.

Antonio Conte will probably opt for the 3-4-3 formation in midweek; however, he might make a couple of changes for the upcoming clash as Ivan Perisic looks likely to make his way back into the starting line-up.

Defence

Hugo Lloris will operate between the sticks for the upcoming fixture. The France shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Thursday.

Cristian Romero will form the centre-half partnership with Eric Dier, and Ben Davies at the heart of Spurs’ backline.

Ivan Perisic should start at the left wing-back position, whereas Matt Doherty will fill in on the other flank as the right wing-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back four.

Rodrigo Bentancur will slot into the central midfield role, determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the frontmen.

Attack

Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Harry Kane will lead the line for Tottenham Hotspur in midweek. The England international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the City defence that has conceded five goals in their last five matches across all competitions.

Richarlison could come off the bench to make a cameo appearance in the second forty-five minutes of the match if needed.
