Team News:
Manchester City must overturn a first-leg deficit on home soil against Premier League opposition for the second season running in the Champions League quarter-finals as they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to the Etihad Stadium.
Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game in last week's clash in North London, after Sergio Aguero missed an early pen, to give Spurs a 1-0 advantage.
Manchester City
As for the hosts, they seem certain to recall De Bruyne, but Guardiola has overlooked Sane more often than not for these big matches of late.

Influential holding midfielder Fernandinho missed the Palace match with a muscle injury but should be fine to play a full part in this one, while Bernardo Silva returned to action with 25 minutes at Selhurst Park.

Elsewhere, Aguero is likely to get the nod over Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko is in contention to replace Fabian Delph at left-back, assuming Guardiola does not fancy taking a risk on a not-yet-fully-fit Benjamin Mendy.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, D.Silva; Bernardo, Aguero, Sterling

The only downside to Tottenham's first-leg win was the loss of top scorer Harry Kane to a season-ending injury. Dele Alli also injured his hand and is considered a major doubt.
To add to Pochettino's attacking woes, Fernando Llorente sustained a knock in the 4-0 win against Huddersfield Town at the weekend and requires a late fitness check.
Son is expected to start through the middle in Kane's absence, though, and Lucas Moura may also have forced his way into Pochettino's plans after netting a hat-trick on Saturday.
Eric Dier, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are all definitely missing for Spurs, who must also factor in a league trip to the Etihad Stadium three days after this European tie.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Trippier, Sissoko, Winks, Rose; Eriksen, Lucas; Son

Head To Head
In 157 competitive meetings between these two sides, both have recorded 61 wins and there have been 35 draws, though City had won three in a row before their first-leg defeat last week.
This season's Premier League meeting at Wembley Stadium ended in a 1-0 win to the Citizens thanks to an early Riyad Mahrez goal, with the reverse fixture scheduled for this Saturday.
In English domestic knockout football, the Lilywhites have won nine of the teams' 14 ties – including five of the last six.

Hope to win quadriple  by Manchester city has been dashed by resilient Tottenham.
