Manchester City v Tottenham Team News

With last Tuesday's narrow defeat by Tottenham being City's only disappointment in 16 competitive matches (W15, L1), and the first of three meetings to be played between them in 11 days, Spurs will have been happy they didn't allow an away goal as they embarked on a 1-0 home victory over reigning PL champions when Son Heung-Min showed individual class to hand the hosts a crucial first-leg lead, although the Citizens wasted a golden chance in Aguero's missed penalty early on.

Despite enjoying half more the ball possession than Spurs (60-40), City only managed two attempts on goal including the brilliantly saved spot-kick by Hugo Lloris from Sergio Aguero, who had just returned to the starting XI following a minor injury. Much regrettably for Spurs, on 58 minutes top scorer Harry Kane was stepped on to worsen his ankle issue on the right leg and limped off with speculations this might have been his final moment of the season.

The Manchester team seemed baffled for some parts of the game and clearly lacked the creativity of De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva, who was nursing a muscle injury at the time. They all would feature in the next game that City won 3-1 at Crystal Palace on Sunday to keep their top position in the Premier League. Heading into the return leg against Pochettino's men on Wednesday, the Sky Blues will remember exiting the exact same stage of the competition when they lost the away leg first to Liverpool last season.

There were lots of positives for Spurs in that win at what was their newly reconstructed home called Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, mainly that they brought to an end their losing run of three defeats against City that followed four games unbeaten (W3, D1) between 2015-17 years and, overall, it was their third victory in a row, something that they had not had since February.

Teams' Potential Starting Line-ups:

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Zinchenko, Laporte, Stones, Walker; Silva, Fernandinho, Bruyne; Sterling, Jesus, Silva.

Tottenham: Eric Dier, Serge Aurier, Erik Lamela, Harry Kane.
