Before heading into this Champions League Tuesday battle, both teams have already been involved in several other games. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have an idea about their current form.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches): DWLLW
Tottenham haven’t been in their best form recently winning two games, losing two and drawing one from their last five. Fortunately, Mauricio Pochettino’s men did get all three points in their latest league match.
The Lilywhites defeated Crystal Palace this past weekend to give them that positive boost for Tuesday’s fixture. Playing at their new stadium will also provide the home side with that newfound beliefs against City.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :WWWWW
City themselves still able to maintain their recent winning run as they haven’t look like losing any matches recently. Pep Guardiola’s men won their latest game 1-0 against Brighton in the FA Cup.
That latest win pretty much keeping their quadruple title shot alive and well. City will try to snatch a good result in their Champions League first leg tie this midweek.
Pochettino is still missing the likes of Erik Lamela, Serge Aurier and Eric Dier for this midweek clash. However, Harry Winks is set to play, though he might not be starting as just yet.
Tottenham could revert into a three man defense with Davinson Sanchez starting. Up front, Spurs will continue to count on Alli, Kane and Son in breaking down City’s defense.
Guardiola’s side also have some concerns for this midweek with Kyle Walker and Zinchenko most likely out. Fabian Delph has returned to the training ground, but unlikely to start this midweek.
Sergio Aguero is getting fitter and should get the nod ahead of Gabriel Jesus. Bernardo Silva will most likely start again up front along side Aguero and Sterling.
Head to Head Records:
The last five meetings between both teams have been dominated by Man City with four wins and one draw.
Their last matchup happened on October 30, 2018, which ended in Man City’s 1-0 away victory.
Playing in their new stadium could give that added morale boost for Spurs. However, their inconsistent form of late will be an issue as they can’t fool around against Man City.
Guardiola’s side have been looking super focus and confident in recent matches. The visitor won’t just be looking for a draw this midweek as they’re keen on taking down Tottenham.
Final Score: 1-2
