Spurs’ Under 21 side will face the current Premier League 2 Division One champions, Manchester City on Sunday afternoon (the game starts at 12:00pm) at their Academy Stadium. Spurs are looking for their first Premier League 2 win of the season, but Manchester City will be a very difficult team to play against. They have won their first two Premier League 2 matches of the season and they will be looking to win the Premier League 2 Division One, yet again this season. However, Wayne Burnett’s Spurs side won both of their league fixtures against Manchester City at this level last season, and they were two very good performances from Spurs. Manchester City are very good at Academy level, and they have a very good team. 18 year old forward Carlos Borges has started the season really well for Manchester City’s Under 21 side, and he will definitely be a player to watch, if he does play on Sunday. Also, Adedire Mebude has also started the season really well for the Manchester City Under 21 side, and he will also be a player to watch. This will be a very difficult game for Spurs, but hopefully they can get a good result tomorrow. Both Jamie Bowden and Alfie Devine picked up injuries in the Spurs Under 21’s last league game, and they will probably be doubts for the match on Sunday. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Keeley, Paskotši, Fagan-Walcott (c), Sayers, Cesay, Craig, Santiago, Mundle, Robson, John, Donley.
Subs from: Maguire, Ashcroft, Muir, Mathurin.
Doubtful: Jamie Bowden, Alfie Devine.
Previous meeting: Spurs 3-0.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Carlos Borges (18). Often playing as a winger, Portugal youth international Carlos Borges really impressed when he played against Spurs in the Under 17 Premier League Cup final last season. He is a very skilful, creative and fast winger, who Spurs will have to watch closely tomorrow. Carlos Borges has scored one league goal and provided two assists so far this season for the Manchester City Under 21 side.
