Sanchez and Winks dropped, Dier returns: Possible Spurs XI vs Man City


Tottenham travel to Manchester City on Saturday aiming to avoid a fourth straight Premier League defeat, and Antonio Conte has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

In his press conference on Friday, Conte revealed Eric Dier is back and in contention to play at the Etihad, but Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga are not quite ready to return. An unnamed player will also miss this weekend’s game after testing positive for Covid.

Despite changing the team’s shape during the first half of the defeat to Wolves last time out, we think Conte will stick with a back three at City, albeit with a couple of personnel changes.

Dier will start after Davinson Sanchez’s poor display last time out. He will join Ben Davies and Christian Romero at center-back, with Emerson Royal and Sergio Reguilon returning on the flanks.

In midfield, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg should come in for Harry Winks, who also struggled against Wolves. The attacking trio is likely to be Lucas Moura, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.

Here’s our predicted XI to face Man City – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments section below.
