Combined Tottenham v Manchester City XI: Imagine Sergio Aguero And Harry Kane In The Same Team

Sergio Aguero Is In Great Form At The Moment For Man City
Sergio Aguero Is In Great Form At The Moment For Man City

The Monday Night Football this week is a massive one at the top end of the table as Spurs host Man City at Wembley in a match which will have major implications for both clubs.

Tottenham have had a tough few days with a poor result in the Champions League followed by more delays to their new stadium and three points against the Premier League champions would be just the boost they need.

It won't be easy though against a Manchester City squad which is as strong as any in the world at the moment.

It is always a fun exercise to have a think about which players would get in their opponents team and we have done exactly that for these two rivals. Check out our combined Tottenham/Man City team and tell us what you think...

GK - Ederson - Hugo Loris has made a number of bad mistakes recently but even without them, Ederson is our keeper. One of the best in the world between the sticks and excellent with the ball at his feet.

CB - John Stones - The former Everton mad is living up to the hype under Pep and is a mainstay of the Man City team these days. Improving every day and worth his place.

CB - Toby Alderweirald - Spurs have been reliant on the Belgian for some years now and despite his contract issues, the quality is still there. You're in, Toby.

CB - Jan Vertonghen - Another reliable Belgium who can play on the left side of our combined back three. Rarely makes a mistake does Jan, solid.

RWB - Kyle Walker - Walker can play anywhere on the right hand side of defence and he has the energy to get up and down the wing. Potent going forward and defensively sound.

LWB - Benjamin Mendy - Danny Rose just misses out to Mendy who is the superior athlete of the two. Never stops running and a joker for team morale in our combined dressing room.

CM - Fernandinho - The defensive engine in the City midfield and we have to select him as a result ahead of Dembele of Spurs. The Brazilian will allow our creative players to flourish Get ball, pass ball.

CM - Kevin De Bruyne - Christian Eriksen loses out to De Bruyne because, well the Belgian is the better player. A near genius who can create from anywhere. Kev, you're in.

AM - David Silva - What more can be said about this little magician? A Premier League legend who strikes fear into opponents hearts with the ball at his feet and we couldn't sleep at night if he wasn't in our combined team.

ST - Harry Kane - The Spurs captain is a goal machine and we need that, we need it bad. Our fox in the box who can score from all angles and hold the ball up to bring the rest of the team into the action.

ST - Sergio Aguero - Perhaps the best foreign striker in Premier League history? Maybe, and the Argentinian is a must start for us here. A Kane/Aguero front two is enough for us to change our trousers.
