Tottenham to return to London between two games at Manchester City
Last Updated: 16/04/19 2:18pm
Tottenham have chosen to return to London after Wednesday's Champions League tie at Manchester City despite playing at the Etihad again on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino's team will return to the capital immediately after the quarter-final second-leg even though their Premier League match on Saturday kicks off at 12.30pm.
Pochettino will hold his weekly news conference and the team will train at their north London base on Thursday afternoon.
Last week, City stayed in London between their FA Cup semi-final against Brighton at Wembley on Saturday and the Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie at Tottenham's new stadium on the Tuesday.
Tottenham will be without Harry Kane for the second leg on Wednesday, while there are doubts around Harry Winks and Dele Alli.
Manchester City left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko is unlikely to feature in the game due to a hamstring injury, but forwards Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are fit despite minor concerns. Fernandinho is also hoping to prove his fitness after missing Sunday's win at Crystal Palace with a muscular problem.
