Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs Paris Saint-Germain

(Update: Lionel Messi is back in training, and in contention to start tomorrow night)

Manchester City finally got the better of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea as they won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, in what was a very high profile league match. Now, they travel to the capital of France to take on the mighty juggernaut Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

City put on a dominant display on the weekend against the same team that beat them in the final of last season’s Champions League tournament. That will give them a lot of confidence when they take on the likes of (maybe) Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Tottenham Team News vs Arsenal: Heung-min Son, Lucas Moura

Tottenham Hotspur will visit the Emirates on Sunday after a tough game against Wolves in the EFL Cup. Facing Arsenal is not going to be easy, but manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be quietly confident of getting one over on Mikel Arteta.

Spurs have some thinking to do after losing their last two games in the Premier League. More than the results, it was the overall performance that worries the boss right now (admittedly) and he wants a much-improved display at the weekend. So who are the players that could miss this game?

Arsenal Team News vs Tottenham: Partey, Tierney, Xhaka

The first north London derby of the season will take place on Sunday and the stage is set for a “blockbuster clash” (I guess, in some ways) as Arsenal FC welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates. After winning their last three games, Mikel Arteta will be looking to add a fourth W to that streak.

On Wednesday, the Gunners scored a comfortable win over Wimbledon AFC which took them to THE EFL Cup fourth round. Spurs had a much harder game in midweek, but they managed to get past Wolves in a penalty shootout.

Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction vs Wolves

Tottenham Hotspur suffered their second straight defeat in the Premier League this past weekend, as they fell 3-0 to Chelsea. They now travel to the Molineux to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup third round and Nuno Espirito Santo will want to respond with a win against his former club.

It was certainly a day to forget on Sunday as the north Londoners could not cope with the relentless press from the Blues. That must concern the boss, as the players are going to have to be better if they want to beat Wolves.

Tottenham Team News vs Wolves: Lucas, Bergwijn, Kane

Tottenham make the trip north to the Molineux for the second time this season as they get ready to play Wolverhampton Wanderers in the EFL Cup third round. Their form after the international break has not been up to standard and the north Londoners obviously want to change that.

Spurs managed to reach the final of this competition last season and would obviously want to get there again. (And maybe, just maybe, end their trophy drought?) However, just getting out of this round itself won’t be easy as they are coming up against a Wolves team stacked with talent.

After getting two wins in a row in the Premier League, Arsenal will turn their attention towards EFL Cup as they host Wimbledon. Following a hard-fought win over Burnley, how will Mikel Arteta change his team for this game?

The Gunners got the win thanks to a wonderful free-kick from Martin Odegaard and they had to then produce a strong defensive performance to keep Sean Dyche’s men at bay. Now, they will face the League One side and will be confident going into the game.

Arsenal are finally building some momentum this season after they managed to hold on for a 1-0 win at Turf Moor this past weekend. Beating Burnley FC, and away from home too, is never easy and Mikel Arteta should be happy with how his team played.

The Gunners now get back to London where they will be hosting League One side Wimbledon on Wednesday in 3rd round League Cup action. A lot of squad rotation can be expected but let’s took at the players that could miss out on this game.
