Tottenham will be without Ryan Sessegnon, Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Juan Foyth when they travel to Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side made a perfect start to the new campaign with a 3-1 comeback victory over Aston Villa on the opening weekend, but things are about to get much more challenging as Spurs prepare to face last season’s champions.
Making things even more difficult will the absence of two key attacking players. Alli is still out with a hamstring injury, while Son will serve the last game of his three-match ban after being sent off against Bournemouth at the end of last season.
Foyth was also sent off in that game and is suspended for Saturday. He’d be out regardless with an ankle injury picked up against Bayern Munich in the Audi Cup, so Kyle Walker-Peters will probably start at right-back again – unless Pochettino prefers Serge Aurier.
Ryan Sessegnon is unlikely to make his Tottenham debut until next month because of a hamstring injury. It’s still unclear whether Pochettino will use the teenager as a left-back or deploy him further forward.
