UEFA Champions League: Man City vs Tottenham Possible Line-ups, Team News

Son Heung-min celebrates after scoring against Man City

Tottenham Hotspur, with a 1-0 advantage, take on Manchester City tonight in the second leg of a UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie at the Etihad Stadium.

Heung-min Son’s second-half goal gave the London club the edge last week.

Spurs will be without their main striker, Harry Kane, who sustained an ankle ligament injury in the first leg.

Pep Guardiola, meanwhile, was clearly angered by his side’s defeat in London and is likely to bring back Kevin de Bruyne as City look to overturn the deficit.

Fernandinho is still in doubt as he fights against muscle injury that saw him miss the weekend’s victory at Crystal Palace.

Oleksandr Zinchenko is expected to miss out with a hamstring issue, but crucially Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are both fit and available.

Meanwhile, Bernardo Silva’s return to action represents a timely boost for City.

Out: Bravo (Achilles)
Doubtful: Fernandinho (unknown), Zinchenko (hamstring)
Misses next match if booked: Agüero, Otamendi

Victor Wanyama, having impressed in the win over Huddersfield, is expected to deputise for Winks.

Out: Aurier (hamstring), Dier (hip), Kane (ankle), Winks (groin)
Doubtful: Alli (hand), Lamela (hamstring)
Misses next match if booked: Alderweireld, Lamela, Son
