Let us have a look at how the teams have fared this season.
Jose Mourhino was brought in mid-November to refresh Spurs’ season. Since then, they have gone on to win 8 of the 17 matches they have played. However, they are 7 points adrift of a Champions League place and will want to move up towards it with a victory over City. However, it will not be a piece of cake!
Spurs are winless against City in six premier league games now. And star striker Harry Kane’s injury and the departure of Christian Erikson makes it an, even harder task. However, Spurs will look upto last seasons Champions League quarter-finals dramatic victory for some inspiration as they look to return to top form.
?| TEAM NEWS:
Tottenham: Harry Kane, Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies remain out. New signing Steven Bergwijn will be involved.

Similar to their opponents, Manchester City has been off-colour this season. It already looks that they have conceded the league title to Liverpool. Mid-weeks’ defeat to a 10-man Manchester United sums up their story of 2019-20 season. However, with the league dream gone, City can focus on the Champions League; a place they have faltered in the knockout stages in recent seasons.
While their road to European Glory beginning at the end of this month at Madrid; City can start by returning in form by defeating Tottenham in a fixture which has not failed them in the last three and a half years.

Dream11 Tips and Tricks for Today’s Premier League Match: TOT vs MCI Dream11 Prediction
Brazilian keeper Ederson is our choice over Hugo Lloris and Paul Gazzaniga for goalkeepers. He has made 42 saves this season, keeping 7 clean sheets in the meanwhile.
Serge Aurier is our first man in defence. The Ivorian has a pretty impressive display going forward- 751 passes and 4 assists this season. Defensively, he has made 59 tackles and 51 clearances.
Joining him in defence is his teammate Davidson Sanchez. A good passer of the ball, Sanchez has recorded just under 1,000 passes while making 28 tackles and 70 clearances in the back this season.
From Manchester City, we have Fernandinho and Kyle Walker in defence. While the Brazilian is a defensive midfielder, Dream11 lists him as a defender. Fernandinho is not a great goalscorer or a creator.
However, he provides City with a crucial balance in midfield. He has recorded over 1,500 passes this season, with 37 tackles and 60 clearances. Walker, on the other hand, has been crucial in attacking with 1 goal and 2 assists.
Dele Alli is enjoying football under Jose! Since the appointment of the Portuguese, he has six goals and three assists in 16 matches. Kevin de Bruyne is a must! He is City’s main creator with 15 assists. The Belgian is also not afraid to shoot. He has scored 7 times this season.
Riyad Mahrez also has a decent goal scoring record this season. He has scored 7 goals and assisted 7 times this season. Joining him in our midfield is Rodrigo Hernandez. The former Atletico midfielder has had a good start to his City career with 2 goals and 1 assist.
However, Hernandez is more of a possession player than an out and out goalscorer in Pep Guardiola’s team. Settling in his first season, the Spanish midfielder has made 1,553 passes, while also contributing defensively with 36 tackles.
Sergio Aguero has been among the best strikers in the PL for quite some time now. The Argentine has been in impressive goal-scoring form with 16 goals; outscoring the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the league this season. (Raheem Sterling- 11 goals 1 assist or Gabriel Jesus- 9 goals 4 assists are alternatives for Aguero)

With the absence of Harry Kane, Heung Min Son is Spurs goto forward. The South Korean has 6 goals and 7 assists this season. Returning from his suspension, Son will also want to return to scoring goals against City. (Lucas Moura is a good alternative in the second squad- 4 goals 1 assist)
