Tottenham and Manchester City go head-to-head for the second time this season as they meet in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Friday night.
Due to TV broadcasting requests, City supporters have been forced to make difficult travel arrangements for the trip to north London, with the final train from north London to Manchester Piccadilly departing before tonight’s contest ends.
That has not stopped City fans from making the journey in their numbers, with 9,000 tickets sold by the club in a bumper away crowd within a 48-hour period from the release of the first batch of tickets.
The trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – where Manchester City are yet to score a goal – is the first game back for Pep Guardiola and their players following a warm weather training camp in Abu Dhabi during the winter break.
That pause from competitive action has seen Kevin De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku return to full fitness, John Stones and Ederson recover from injury, and Erling Haaland reach the tail end of his rehabilitation period following a foot bone fracture.
Ahead of kick-off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Friday night, both Ange Postecoglou and Pep Guardiola have now confirmed their respective starting line-ups.
Starting XI: Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Hojbjerg, Bentancur; Johnson, Kulusevski, Werner; Richarlison
Substitutes: Forster, Royal, Davies, Dragusin, Skipp, Maddison, Byran, Santiago, Scarlett.
Starting XI: Ortega Moreno, Walker (C), Dias, Ake, Gvardiol, Rodrigo, Kovacic, Bernardo, Foden, Bobb, Alvarez.
Substitutes: Ederson, Stones, Grealish, Doku, De Bruyne, Gomez, Nunes, Susoho, Lewis.
