Manchester City Vs Tottenham Hotspur Dream11 Prediction: The SportsRush Brings you the best Dream 11 team for Man City vs Tottenham at Game week 35 of Premier league
Tottenham Hotspur will play Manchester City thrice in ten days at Etihad on Saturday. These two met in the Champions League Quarterfinals and it was Mauricio Pochettino’s side who knocked Pep Guardiola’s side on away goals to progress to the last four of the competition. However, they will not shift their attention to the Premier League as both the sides battle out for two different reasons.
Manchester City are currently two points behind Liverpool but they have a game in hand and could leapfrog the Reds with a win on Saturday. On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur are third in the league table, but Pochettino is aware that the top four race could go down to the wire.
It will be an interesting game and we shall look at the dream11 picks for his clash between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Dream11 team for Manchester City Vs Tottenham Hotspur
Ederson Moraes: Ederson Moraes gets a nod above Hugo Lloris because of Manchester City’s ability to hold the possession. If the Citizens find their top gear, he will have very little work left. His ability to make interceptions and come off the line is making him a top-notch goalkeeper.
Kieran Trippier: Kieran Tripper has the finesse to complete the job up and down the pitch. The English International has the ability to link up with the attackers and pick out the forwards inside the penalty box. He has three assists this campaign, and his set-piece asset is another key ingredient for Spurs.
Kyle Walker: Kyle Walker is the only guaranteed starter in Manchester City’s backline. The right-back will be up against his former side on Wednesday night. The English International sits back with the defence like a conventional defensive midfielder, but his selection could prove to be key because of City’s capability to keep the clean sheet.
Jan Vertonghen: Jan Vertonghen has been ever-present in Tottenham Hotspur’s defence. Mauricio Pochettino has used him in two positions this season at centre-back and left-back. Vertonghen will switch positions during the game, but he is a serious threat from corners and free kicks. Besides, he gets forward and links up with the forwards regardless.
Aymeric Laporte: Pep Guardiola has four centre-backs at disposal, but only Aymeric Laporte has featured in multiple games for the Citizens. The French International is not tall enough to cause problems to the opponents from set pieces, but his ball playing ability is a feature to like.
Fernandinho: Since both the full-backs sits back with the defensive line, Fernandinho has the freedom to roam around the pitch and tick his team with relentless passing. He wins plenty of duels and has a very good right foot which can launch piledrivers from outside the box.
Bernardo Silva: Bernardo Silva, arguably, has been the best player for Manchester City this season. The Portuguese International has been the integral cog of the team, at times, and ticks the team around with his through balls, runs, and passes. He was rested in the weekend against Crystal Palace and will be reinstalled in the starting lineup on Wednesday.
Christian Eriksen: Christian Eriksen has the best scoring record among other Spurs players against Manchester City by bagging four goals. The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is a set piece taker and has the ability to find the back of the net from long range positions. He covers plenty of ground and is adept in his position.
Kevin De Bruyne (VC): Kevin De Bruyne has spent most of his time on the sidelines this season. Since making his comeback to the team, the Belgian International has started to find his feet. The Manchester City attacking midfielder recently scored against Cardiff City during City’s 2-0 win last week. He can split the defence and likes to get into the box more often to increase his goal tally.
Sergio Aguero (C): Sergio Aguero might have missed the penalty in the first leg, but he is a too good option to leave him out from the team. The record scorer of Manchester City was involved in the game against Crystal Palace and is expected to start on Wednesday night. He has scored 27 goals in all competitions this season and will be looking to add even more in this particular competition.
Heung Min Son: In the absence of Harry Kane, Heung Min Son has the responsibility to carry Tottenham Hotspur’s attack. The Korean International has scored 19 goals in all competition this season, including the winner in the first leg in front of their home crowd a week ago. He will be key to Tottenham’s goalscoring hopes.
