Match preview 🔵 ⚪️
Manchester City put aside their disappointing 1-0 loss to Tottenham in the first leg with a dominant 3-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Sunday. Raheem Sterling scored twice at Selhurst Park to inspire the Citizens to a ninth straight Premier League success before substitute Gabriel Jesus confirmed the result in the dying moments. The returning Kevin De Bruyne also sparkled.
Tottenham has begun life at their new home in flawless fashion, winning three out of three across all competitions, scoring seven goals and conceding none. The task here, however, is to tame a star-studded Manchester City side still challenging for a quadruple but they'll be high on confidence.
The tie is delicately-poised. Spurs have scored in six of their last seven trips to the 'Big Six' in the Premier League and should relish the opportunity to counter-attack with a tie-changing away goal on the cards.
Team news 🌟
City made four changes to their starting XI with Benjamin Mendy making his first league start since November and Bernardo Silva appearing off the bench at Crystal Palace. Fernandinho didn't travel with the squad and is rated doubtful for the trip to Tottenham despite the club suggesting he's only suffering from a short-term knock. De Bruyne and Sane will hope to keep their places after playing prominent roles in the Premier League.
Leading goalscorer Harry Kane is out for the season, although Dele Alli is expected to feature despite breaking his hand in the first leg. Harry Winks is hopeful of being available again and the likes of Son Heung-Min, Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose will all be recalled. Serge Aurier, Eric Dier and Erik Lamela remain sidelined.
