Man City vs Tottenham LIVE: Updates and confirmed teams from the Etihad | Football | Sport


4.40pm Jan Vertonghen returns to the Tottenham bench after being bizarrely snubbed for the win over Aston Villa last weekend, while Giovani Lo Celso joins him.

The big story, though, is that Christian Eriksen is back into Spurs’ starting line-up after his impact coming on against Villa, replacing Lucas Moura in Mauricio Pochettino’s only change.

For City, Sergio Aguero comes into the starting line-up with Bernardo Silva also coming back into the XI. 

Nicolas Otamendi replaces John Stones – who is not in the squad whatsoever – at centre-back and the fourth change sees Ilkay Gundogan replace David Silva.

4.30pm CONFIRMED LINE UPS

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Aguero.

Tottenham: Lloris; Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Rose; Ndombele, Winks, Sissoko; Eriksen, Lamela, Kane.
