Tottenham – Manchester City
Tottenham’s captain and talisman Harry Kane has been linked with a move to Manchester City all summer, now the two teams meet on Sunday. Tottenham will have to play without him this weekend due to the player having to quarantine following his delayed holiday after the Euros. Whether or not Kane would have played even if there was no holiday is up for debate as Man City have been trying to sign the striker all summer and will be hoping to get a deal across the line once this weekend’s game has been played. Spurs will also be without Sessegnon due to a hamstring injury, while late fitness tests will be handed to both Romero and Ndombele.
Man City will have been disappointed to lose the Community Shield last week but the trophies they really care about are the Premier League title and that elusive Champions League. The visitors will go into the first game of the season without Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne which is a huge disappointment but they have enough quality within their squad to deal with this issue and they remain the favourites with the bookmakers to secure all 3points.
This match will be played on 15/08/2021 at 18:30.
