Team News:
Tottenham Hotspur will welcome Manchester City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday night for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.
Spurs started life in their new ground with a win over Crystal Palace on Wednesday and will now be looking to secure a first-leg advantage ahead of their trip to the Etihad Stadium for the return fixture on April 17.
Eric Dier, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are all expected to miss out for Tottenham, but Pochettino has no fresh injury concerns from the team that faced Palace last time out.

The home side could revert to a back three with Davinson Sanchez returning to the XI, while Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min should also all be included in support of Harry Kane.

If it is indeed a 3-5-2 formation then Son could join Kane in attack, with Danny Rose pipping Ben Davies to the left-sided wing-back spot and Kieran Trippier starting on the right.
That said, Pochettino could easily spring a tactical surprise with Harry Winks also in contention to start having appeared off the bench against Palace last time out.

Tottenham possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Trippier, Sissoko, Eriksen, Alli, Rose; Son, Kane

Manchester City
As for City, their main injury concern surrounds the fitness of Sergio Aguero. The Argentine missed out against Brighton but has returned to training ahead of the European affair and should start.

Fabian Delph is also back in training ahead of the clash, but Kyle Walker is expected to miss out with a hamstring strain while current first-choice left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko is also a huge doubt.

Bernardo Silva is expected to get the nod alongside Raheem Sterling and Aguero in attack, leaving the likes of Leroy Sane and David Silva on the bench, at least from the start.
