Tottenham vs Man City team news

Tottenham

Tottenham were made to work hard at home to Burnley in the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. The two teams went in at the break goalless and it wasn't until the seventy-eighth minute that Pedro Porro broke the deadlock and won the tie with a stunning shot from outside the area.

Alejo Veliz, Ben Davies, Giovani Lo Celso, James Maddison, Manor Solomon, Dejan Kulusevski and Ryan Sessegnon could all miss out on Friday due to injury, while Pape Sarr, Heung-Min Son and Yves Bissouma are all on international duty.

Predicted Lineup: Vicario (GK), Romero, Porro, van de Ven, Udogie, Højbjerg, Bentancur, Skipp, Werner, Richarlison & Johnson

Man City

Man City made like work of their 3rd Round opponents Huddersfield at the Etihad earlier this month. Phil Foden scored twice and Julian Alvarez and Jeremy Doku both got on the scoresheet along with an own goal from Ben Jackson as City ran out 5-0 winners.

John Stones, Manuel Akanji, Erling Haaland and Ederson Moraes look set to miss the 4th Round match-up with Tottenham through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Ortega (GK), Walker, Aké, Dias, Gvardiol, Kovačić, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Doku & Álvarez

Player to Watch: Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin De Bruyne came off the bench against Newcastle to help Man City win what could prove to be a vital game in their pursuit of the league title.

Having the Belgian playmaker back fit could be the key to Manchester City claiming more silverware this season as it has felt like a new signing has arrived since he returned from injury. De Bruyne isn't likely to start or play more than half an hour against Tottenham as he continues his comeback from a long injury but the veteran midfielder could still play a key part in a Man City victory on Friday night.

We're backing De Bruyne to impress just as he did against Newcastle last weekend and if he can stay fit, it's hard to see anyone stopping City from winning the league and cup this season.
