Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur: Team news, preview, betting prediction - Premier League
Manchester City vs Tottenham
Saturday 17th August
Team newsLeroy Sane is still out as he is still waiting for his knee surgery, Benjamin Mendy is back in training but not fit enough to be selected.
Fernandinho is available for selection after missing last weekend's match at West Ham.
PEP 💬 What I want from @benmendy23 is for him to be fit. To be available for training sessions every week. He’s had almost two years out and he needs to play. The first target is be fit rather than to play. To train regularly for a month then he has a chance to play.— Manchester City (@ManCity) August 16, 2019
Dele Alli and New signing Ryan Sessegnon are still sidelined with a hamstring problem.
Tottenham are at full strength except for Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth that are suspended.

@Komptrolla's Prediction and betting tipPremier League clubs took to the turf for the first time last weekend with the table looking almost the same way we expected it to look.
To be fair, not many of us expected United to run over Chelsea in the manner they did and whatever it was that inspired Brighton at Vicarage road caught us unawares but everywhere else, things went according to plans and relative expectations.
It’s another weekend and we have to analyze who wins where, notably with a big one happening at the Etihad between the defending champions and of course, one of those teams that will give them a very good run this season.
Spurs labored to a 3-1 win over a fearless Aston Villa side at their new ground last weekend, an early scare was doused by two Harry Kane strikes and a Tanguy Ndombele opener, helping them to start their chasing game on the right note while City eased ruthlessly past Westham and would be ready to do the same to Spurs.
Remember that intense finish to their quarter-final duel in the UEFA Champions League last season? Revenge might very much be on the cards for Pep Guardiola as they host Mauricio Pochetino and company.
Verdict: Man City to win
Player to watch: Sergio Aguero
