Pochettino to start Sissoko and Wanyama? – Predicted 3-4-1-2 Tottenham XI to face Manchester City

Published

on

Tottenham travel to the Etihad Stadium as Mauricio Pochettino’s side faces Manchester City in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday.

Spurs really pulled off a stunning result in the first leg at our new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, thanks to a late Son Heung-min strike. We have a slender 1-0 lead but to progress to the next round, our whole team will have to give everything to overcome the odds.

Manchester City, meanwhile, will look to go for the kill from the blow of the first whistle.

Team News

Harry Kane hobbled off in the first leg and could be out for the rest of the season.

Dele Alli also walked off holding his hand and remains a doubt, and so is Harry Winks, who injured himself during training.

Probable Tottenham XI

Formation: 3-4-1-2

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris was excellent in the first leg and will look to reproduce something similar on Wednesday.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

Trippier did a good job in keeping Sterling at bay in the first-leg. With Aurier injured, he is expected to keep his place in the team.

Toby Alderweireld (RCB)

A pillar at the back, Alderweireld is one of the first names on the team sheet.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez has blown hot and cold this season but Wednesday could be a very good opportunity to repay our manager’s faith in him.

Jan Vertonghen (LCB)

A leader at the back, Vertonghen will have to be at his best to keep City’s attackers at bay.

Danny Rose (LWB)

Aggressive and tenacious, Rose could get the nod ahead of Davies at the Etihad.

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

Sissoko has impressed massively with his work rate and tenacity in midfield. He is a certain starter for Spurs.

Victor Wanyama (CM)

Wanyama’s presence will be important on Wednesday. The Kenyan will look to intercept the opposition’s attacks and protect the backline.

Christian Eriksen (CAM)

Tottenham’s creative hub, the Danish midfielder will have to be at his best, if we are to win against Manchester City.

Son Heung-min (RS)

Son is enjoying his best season at our club and is an undoubted starter at the Etihad.

Lucas Moura (LS)

Moura scored a hat-trick in the 4-0 rout of Huddersfield at the weekend. That should give him a lot of confidence going into this game.
