Manchester City vs Tottenham prediction: Manchester City line-up

Manchester City travel to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Pep Guardiola’s side faces Tottenham in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday.

The Cityzens booked a place in the FA Cup final after beating Brighton 1-0 at the Wembley on Saturday. The gritty win at Wembley in the FA Cup will give Guardiola’s men a lot of confidence going into the Champions League game against Spurs.

Tottenham, on the other hand, won their first game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Crystal Palace last week and will be raring to beat City on Tuesday.

Team News

Manchester City have been handed a double-injury boost as Sergio Aguero and Fabian Delph returned to training on Sunday.

Kyle Walker was substituted at half-time with a hamstring problem in the FA Cup semi-final victory against Brighton but the full-back is expected to be fit to face his former employers. But Oleksandr Zinchenko will miss the game due to thigh injury.
