Day 10 of the English League, Tottenham will face the defending champions Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.
Tottenham successfully defeated West Ham 1-0 in the last match at the London Stadium. If we got to look at the standings, Tottenham is just 2 points away from Man-City, which goes to prove that Tottenham have been performing exceptionally but it’s Man City that stands above all. Tottenham have won 7 matches in the first 9 matches but lost two matches, whereas, Man City won 7 matches, 2 matches ended up in a draw and lost none.
Tottenham has been involved in some close chases and they tend to lose the grip of the match. The 2nd leg last 16-match against Juventus last season or Inter-Milan match this season where they couldn’t resist Nerazurri’s attempt in the dying minutes.
Whereas, Man City has been leading the score chart in the 3rd position and their history with Tottenham has been intimidating and the winner has always been Man City.
Raheem Sterling has been back among the goals for Man City and he could be a reason to exploit Tottenham’s defensive injury crisis and last season he scored in that win at Wembley last season.
Probable Playing 11:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris(GK), Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Fernando Liorente, Sanchez, Aurier, Dier, Lamela, Dele, Moussa, Davies.
Man City: Ederson(GK), Sterling, Aguero, Kompany, Sane, Jesus, Bruyne, Stones, Danilo, Fernandinho, Laporte.
Definitely Man City’s side looks bright and clear as they have evolved not only as an attacking squad but also enhanced its defensive skills as well. Tottenham, on the other side, has been defensive squad but their defensive and attacking bars haven’t raised from their previous games.
