Predicted Tottenham line-up to play Manchester City: Two changes from Pochettino

Here is how we predict Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 14th February 2016 at 16:15. Venue: Etihad Stadium, Manchester

Odds: Man City 11/10, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 5/2

Manchester City welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday with the two sides fighting hard at the top of the Premier League table.

Tottenham are currently second, five points behind leaders Leicester City and just a single point ahead of City with 13 matches remaining.

For that reason this clash is very much a six-pointer and it will be interesting to see how City respond after crashing to a 3-1 defeat against the Foxes earlier this month.

Tottenham earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Watford last time out and it will take all their efforts to leave Manchester with the three points.

In early team news, City are without Kevin de Bruyne, Vincent Kompany, Eliaquim Mangala, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini will also be sweating on the fitness of David Silva who is rated at only 50/50 to recover from an ankle injury.

As for Tottenham they are without Clinton N’Jie and Jan Vertonghen but have an otherwise clean bill of health.
