Tottenham Hotspur Starting XI Prediction at Manchester City (Premier League)



The UEFA Champions League final four is now set with Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur meeting in a semifinal tie that features the tournament’s two underdogs. The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium leg is April 30 while the reverse fixture, at Amsterdam Arena, is May 7.

The manner in which Spurs advanced that far is the real story though. The north London side won an instant classic of a game, a second leg of their quarterfinal UCL tie with Manchester City, in a manner that we’ll never forget. And they did it all without injured leading scorer Harry Kane.

“That is why we love football. Today we showed great character and great personality, it was an unbelievable game,” said Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
