How Tottenham Hotspur could line up against Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte could have a fully fit squad to choose from for Saturday’s Premier League trip to reigning champions Manchester City.

Lucas Moura was the only absentee from the Spurs squad who beat Marseille on Wednesday due to an inflamed tendon, but the attacker could recover in time to be involved at the Etihad Stadium.

Even though Conte named a strong starting lineup for their Champions League opener, the Italian is unlikely to make too many changes to his side this weekend.

Richarlison followed up a strong showing off the bench against Fulham with two goals in 90 minutes against Marseille, and the Brazilian has seemingly earned the right to retain his place in attack alongside Harry Kane, who scored twice at the Etihad last season.

Dejan Kulusevski – who has been benched in the last two games – and Son Heung-min are therefore set to battle for the final place in the front three.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur appear to be the preferred centre-midfield options under Conte, despite the summer arrival of Yves Bissouma, who is set to begin on the substitutes’ bench again.

In defence, Ben Davies could return to the back three ahead of Clement Lenglet, while Ryan Sessegnon will be pushing to start at left wing-back ahead of Ivan Perisic.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup: Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son
