Man City head into the League Cup final as the favourites to beat managerless Tottenham Hotspur. England captain Harry Kane has an injury that could keep him from playing on Sunday but even if the club do rush him back, can a semi-fit Kane lead his boyhood club to glory against the might of Manchester City?

Read on for our full match preview and prediction for Man City vs Tottenham in the League Cup final.

Man City to Win

Man City have won three of their last six meetings with Tottenham, including a 3-0 win when the two sides last locked horns in February. Guardiola's men have won four of their last six matches in all competitions, while Tottenham have only two of their last six fixtures.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're expecting the final to be tight and tense throughout, as so many finals prove to be. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last seven encounters between these two clubs and Man City's FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea also produced under 2.5 goals.

2-0 Man City

five of the last seven matches played between Man City and Tottenham have ended in wins-to-nil and we're expecting more of the same in Sunday's final. Man City have scored exactly two goals in four of their last six matches and haven't scored more than two goals in any of their last out outings in league and cup.

Spurs look to end trophy drought on Sunday

Man City bounced back from the disappointment of their FA Cup semi-final defeat with a 2-1 win at Villa Park in midweek, despite going a goal down in the opening stages. Guardiola's men don't look as fluid going forward right now or as clinical in front of goal but remain difficult to break down and are always a threat when in possession. Having beat Spurs 3-0 just a couple of months ago, Man City will be confident in their ability to shut their opponents out on Sunday. Man City will be without the suspended Stones, while De Bruyne is carrying a knock and will need a late fitness test. Aguero could return in time to offer Man City some extra firepower from the bench late on.

Harry Kane is currently rated at 50/50 to feature this weekend but Tottenham will be desperate for their leader and top goalscorer to start this match as there is silverware on the line. Doherty could also return from injury on Sunday but Davies has already been ruled out. Tottenham's first match without Mourinho in charge ended in victory, with Spurs beating Southampton 2-1. Clearly, Tottenham played higher up the pitch and went in search of goals more than they would have under the Portuguese manager, but this did leave them far more open at the back and really, Southampton should have punished them further. That kind of play will be punished when you face a side like Man city, especially if you don't convert the majority of your own chances.
