Tottenham to beat Manchester City

James Maddison injury boost

Before the game, Ange Postecoglou has confirmed that James Maddison is back in the Tottenham squad and ‘ready to start’ their FA Cup clash with Manchester City.

Maddison had been out since November with an ankle injury but the midfielder has now returned to training and is in line to make his comeback this evening.

Ange also provided an update on Dejan Kulusevski: “Team news, everyone’s ok from the last game. Deki’s [Dejan Kulusevski] recovered from his illness.

“The boys had four days off last week, which was good for them.

“Post-that, Madders has been training with us, he’s had a full training week. He’s in a good place. Ben [Davies] and Dane Scarlett have just started back with the group as well. So we’re getting the numbers back up.

“I think the ones who are definitely still out are Gio [Lo Celso], Manor [Solomon] and Alejo [Veliz] - they’re the ones still away from the group.”
