Pellegrini's side is likely to look a lot like the one who beat Sunderland as his Manchester City side look to reestablish some momentum. OptaJoe @OptaJoe3 - Man City made the joint-fewest changes from the weekend to their starting lineup in the League Cup (3, with West Ham & Walsall). Stable. The Chilean's attack will be led by Tottenham's bete noire Sergio Aguero (more on him later), with Jesus Navas and Raheem Sterling likely to provide the width again. With Silva out, Kevin De Bruyne will be attempting to piece things together between them. Changes further back could be on the agenda if Pellegrini decides to rotate and try one or two things.

Tottenham vs Manchester City: Prediction, kick off time, TV
The Belgium international scored goals in both his last two appearances. De Bruyne's began his second spell in England with a bright debut away at Palace, coming off the bench and helping his team gain a foothold in the intimidating environs of Selhurst Park. No small thing, his new team-mates will attest—they lost there 2-1 last season. Squawka Football @SquawkaHEAT MAP: Kevin De Bruyne in the No.
Yet position rival Danny Rose's dynamic showing against the Gunners makes the notion last season's first choice will reclaim his place hard to dispel. Barring any late knocks or problems, Dele Alli and Eric Dier will be back in central midfield. The absence of Bentaleb, Dembele and Mason just about guarantees that, although Tom Carroll's often strong work against Arsenal has given Pochettino something to think about. Further forward, while Christian Eriksen is firmly back in contention after starting his first game since August on Wednesday, Pochettino may opt to keep with the attacking midfield trio of Nacer Chadli, Son Heung-Min and Erik Lamela.
