Spurs Under 23’s versus Manchester City: (match preview)

On Saturday (the game starts at 12:00pm) Spurs host the reigning Premier League 2 Division One champions – Manchester City, at Hotspur Way, in their latest Premier League 2 game. Wayne Burnett’s Spurs side go into this game in good form, having won four of their last five league games, while Manchester City have only won one of their last five league games, and are now one place behind Spurs in the table, in fourth place. Spurs won 3-1 away to Manchester City in the league back in October, and they’ll be hoping to keep up their fine run of form tomorrow. Manchester City are a very good team, and with players like Cole Palmer, James McAtee and Kayky, they will be very difficult to win against. However, Cole Palmer and James McAtee made the bench for Manchester City’s first team in midweek, and with their first team playing again on Saturday, it will be interesting to see if they make the first team squad again. Spurs played very well against Everton last Friday when they won 4-0 at The Lamex Stadium, and tomorrow they’ll be looking to impress once again. I will be reporting on Saturday’s match, and would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lo-Tutala, Lavinier, Fagan-Walcott, Omole, Cesay, Lyons-Foster, White (c), Markanday, John, Santiago, Clarke.

Subs from: Oluwayemi, Matthew Craig, Michael Craig, Mundle, Mukendi.

Injured/unavailable: N/A.

Doubtful: Dane Scarlett.

Previous meeting: Spurs 3-1.

My score prediction: Spurs 

My one to watch: James McAtee. If he does play against Spurs on Saturday then the 19 year old will be a player for Spurs to watch. The CAM was outstanding against Spurs at Hotspur Way, in their final competitive Under 23 game of last season, and McAtee has already scored 11 league goals and provided two assists this season.
