How we predict Man City will line up vs Spurs

Record goalscorer Sergio Aguero is also nearing a return after a trouble-hit first half of the season.

Defender Dias, who has made a big impact since his club record signing from Benfica last summer, missed the midweek FA Cup win at Swansea through illness.

Rodri appears to have overcome a knock sustained late in the game at the Liberty Stadium but captain Fernandinho remains on the sidelines with a thigh problem.

Aguero has made just three starts this season due a combination of knee trouble, a hamstring injury and a spell in self-isolation with Covid-19.

The Argentinian is now back in training and theoretically available but, with Guardiola having previously intimated it could be a couple of weeks before he regains full fitness levels, that seems unlikely.

Pep Guardiola said: “Sergio is in training, he made his second training session with us.

“I think except Fernandinho, Nathan (Ake) and Kevin (De Bruyne), the rest of the first-team squad are available.”

Playmaker De Bruyne is expected to be out until the end of the month with a hamstring injury.

Man City predicted lineup: (4-3-3) Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Foden, Sterling

Doubts: Ruben Dias, Rodri, Sergio Aguero

Injury list: Fernandinho, Nathan Ake, Kevin De Bruyne
