Nine starters from Tottenham’s first squad will be absent for Sunday’s Premier League match against Manchester City.

The most recent addition to the list is Rodrigo Bentancur, the midfield player who was substituted due to a torn ankle ligament during the team’s most recent loss to Aston Villa. He will be out until the new year and will be on the treatment table with James Maddison, Micky van de Ven, and Cristian Romero.

Despite the fact that Spurs have prevailed in five of the last eight meetings between the teams, City will be the favourites in this match on Sunday.

In addition, Manor Solomon (knee), Ivan Perisic (knee), and Ryan Sessegnon (thigh) have chronic problems for the Spurs. It has been confirmed that Pape Matar Sarr will not play in Sunday’s match at the Etihad after missing the match against Aston Villa last weekend.

After serving two of his three-match ban after getting sent off against Chelsea, Cristian Romero is still unavailable.

Although there is some doubt, Richarlison is also working towards a return following surgery. According to Postecoglu, the Brazilian has “done his rehab really well.”
