Previously, it was hard to imagine Tottenham Hotspur securing a victory over Manchester City. However, due to the drop of one of their key players, now would be a great chance for the Citizens to bag a much-needed victory against the Manchesters.
The Man City team hasn’t looked particularly dangerous recently if considering the latest defeat against Leicester City in the Community Shield.
The Spurs haven’t looked any better either, but they can offer strong resistance owing to the defense-oriented tactical philosophy of Nuno Espirito Santo.
By and large, the two sides are expected to share the spoils in this clash.
(4-2-3-1): Lloris; Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon; Skipp, Hojbjerg; Lucas, Alli, Bergwijn; Son
(4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Ake, Mendy; Silva, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Torres, Grealish
No Kevin De Bruyne this weekend for Manchester City in the opening match against Spurs
Manchester City will play its first match of the Premier League and its key player Kevin De Bruyne will be missing out on the game against Spurs. Good news for Spurs as it will be a great advantage for them.
It was also hinted in midweek by their manager Pep Guardiola that the Belgian player has been facing some fitness issues. Therefore, he might not be available for the Spurs game.
Later on, BBC News confirmed the whole scenario. The ankle injury of Kevin that he endured in Euros has still not been cured properly, ruling out his chances for the match.
Impact of De Bruyne’s absence on both teams
It surely is a great opportunity and booster for the Spurs to mark their statement. Nuno Santo will be pleased and see Bryne’s absence as the best time to hit his opponent Pep Guardiola’s side hard.
For Manchester, it was already a tough competition on paper, and with Bruyne’s unavailability, it would be a real blow for them. Fingers crossed for Jack Grealish because it could give him a chance to prove his worth.
Which team will have a mental boost?
The hype of a big match can sometimes have a psychological impact on a player or a team before even getting onto the field.
De Bruyne is considered one of the best midfielders in the world. Although Manchester still has more quality players than Spurs, the mental pressure of not having a big player inside the team will give the Spurs an edge.
Nuno Santo, the team manager, will also be hoping for a big push for the start of his tenure at Spurs. He must have hopes that his players will grab this opportunity and mark the start with a great win.
27-year-old Bernardo Silva will be open to joining Spurs in a swap deal
This is an open secret that Manchester City wants Harry Kane and if we believe rumors then they are offering a player and cash deal to have this done.
Journalist Duncan Castles has claimed that Bernardo Silva is open to join Spurs in a swap deal for Kane.
