Reporters dedicated to Tottenham expected Ivan Perisic to be excluded from the starting lineup.
Tottenham will face Manchester City in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2020-23 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am (Korean time) on the 6th. Currently, Tottenham is in 5th place (36 points) and Man City is in 2nd place (45 points).
Tottenham faced a big crisis ahead of the game. This is because the team’s head coach, Antonio Conte, is unable to direct the team. Tottenham said on the club channel on the 1st, “Director Conte is not in good shape due to severe abdominal pain. 토토사이트
Fortunately, the surgery was successful. After undergoing surgery, Director Conte expressed concern through personal SNS, saying, “Thank you for sending messages of support. The surgery went really well. I’m in a stable situation. Now I’ll focus on my recovery. I’ll come back quickly and be with the team.” He left a message for his fans.
However, it is difficult to expect an immediate return. Conte headed to Italy for surgery, and he is said to be still in Italy. Therefore, the Manchester City match is expected to be filled by assistant coach Christian Stellini and coach Ryan Mason.
So, how will the starting lineup be organized? Tottenham had Kane, Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski, Perisic, Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Rodrigo Bentancur, Emerson Royale, Ben Davies, Eric Dyer, Christian Romero, and Hugo Lloris in the starting list on the away road to Man City a fortnight ago. I put my name on it. At the time, Tottenham scored two goals in the first half and took the lead, but as the defensive line collapsed in the second half, Tottenham gave up four goals and lost.
In particular, Perisic was pointed out as the culprit behind the defeat. This is because 3 out of 4 goals scored by Man City started with Perisic’s defensive misses. Perisic did not defend Riyad Mahrez properly and gave up space, providing an excuse for 3 runs.
Therefore, reporters dedicated to Tottenham also predicted the exclusion of Perishi from the upcoming Manchester City match. Reporter Rob Guest of England’s ‘Football London’ predicted that he would be excluded from the starting lineup, saying, “Perisic was a nightmare for 3 of 4 goals at the last Etihad Stadium.” Reporter Alesdair Gold also predicted that Ryan Sessegnon would start.
Both reporters expected the same lineup. Both guest and gold reporters expected Son Heung-min, Kane, Kulusevski, Sessegnon, Hoivier, Bentancur, Emerson, Davis, Dyer, Romero and Lloris to start.
