Manchester City could have Aguero & Sterling in squad to face Tottenham

Manchester City could have Aguero & Sterling in squad to face Tottenham

Manchester City have reportedly been handed a boost on the personnel front ahead of their return to action this weekend.

Tottenham vs Man City

Pep Guardiola’s men face a trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening.

The clash marks City’s first following the international break, and could prove significant when it comes to the title race.

Spurs will head into the tie sitting 2nd in the Premier League table, after a fine start to the campaign which has seen them go undefeated in the league since the opening weekend.

Manchester City, on the other hand, haven’t looked anywhere close to their imperious best.

Granted, the Sky Blues have only lost once in the Premier League, but they have also drawn three of their seven league outings so far in 2020/21, a record which leaves them 10th in the table ahead of the return to domestic football.

Key trio could feature for Man City vs Tottenham

As such, a win over a high-flying Tottenham could prove key to kick-starting City’s campaign.

So, Pep Guardiola will no doubt be keen to field as strong a side as possible in London on Saturday.

And, as mentioned above, the Citizens look set to be handed a major boost on the personnel front ahead of their return to action.

Sergio Aguero has been sidelined for a good chunk of the campaign thus far due to injury issues, whilst Raheem Sterling missed England’s loss to Belgium on Sunday with a problem of his own.

However, according to Goal, City could have all of Aguero, Sterling and Fernandinho in their squad for the trip to Tottenham, as the trio battle back towards full fitness.

On Sterling, it is added, though, that the attacker is likely to miss England’s meeting with Iceland on Wednesday.
