Manchester City vs Tottenham predicted lineups and team news ahead of Carabao Cup final today

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur clash at Wembley Stadium in the League Cup Final.

Both clubs won their last match 2-1, with City winning at Villa Park while Spurs defeated Southampton.

The match against the Saints was interim Spurs boss Ryan Mason’s first game in charge and the 29-year-old became the youngest Premier League manager in history.

He will have to defeat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to win the club’s first major trophy since 2008, while City are looking for the first of a potential treble along with the league and Champions League.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match:

What is the team news?

Manchester City duo Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero could both be available for the final as they have recovered from respective ankle and muscle issues. John Stones is suspended.

Harry Kane will be assessed ahead of kick-off after the Spurs captain picked up an ankle injury against Everton last week and did not train on Friday. Ben Davies is out with an ankle injury of his own while Joe Rodon is cup-tied.

Predicted line-ups:

Manchester City: Steffen, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Mendy, Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Mahrez, Torres, Sterling

Tottenham: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Ndombele, Hojbjerg, Bale, Lo Celso, Son, Lucas

Odds:

Manchester City: 1/2

Draw: 7/2

Tottenham: 5/1

Prediction:

Manchester City have lost momentum recently, but we think that they will still pick up their first trophy of the season against Tottenham. Unfortunately for Ryan Mason, the potential absence of the talismanic Harry Kane, or at least a hindered version of the England striker, hurts their chances significantly. We’ll go for 3-1 City.
