Manchester City will be heavy favourites for tomorrow’s Carabao Cup final at Wembley. The Citizens are not only in pretty good form but they will be facing a team without a permanent manager.
Tottenham’s decision to sack Jose Mourinho a week before the showpiece event is quite extraordinary, with caretaker coach Ryan Mason tasked with picking up the pieces.
In terms of team news, Kevin De Bruyne will face a late fitness test, but it is expected that the Belgian may only be ready for a place on the bench. Sergio Aguero (knock) is a doubt, while John Stones is suspended after his sending off against Aston Villa.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face Spurs:
Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, Silva, Rodri, Gundogan, Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Foden
Tottenham have doubts over the fitness of Harry Kane (ankle) and Matt Doherty, while Ben Davies has been ruled out with a calf problem.
Spurs’ Predicted XI:
Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Hojbjerg, Bale, Moura, Son
The bookmakers have backed City for the win with William Hill pricing them at 1/2 to lift the trophy. A draw after 90 minutes is 15/4 with Betfair while a victory for Tottenham is 11/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – City to win 3-1
