Manchester City Vs Tottenham Hotspur: Carabao Cup Final Prediction, Team News, Stream And Odds

At the end of a tumultuous week for football, this season's Carabao Cup final awaits for Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, two teams in the middle of the European Super League controversy.

Both Man City and Spurs will have 2,000 fans in attendance for the big day as sport slowly meanders back towards normality.

Spurs, who parted company with manager Jose Mourinho at the start of the week, and are looking to lift their first trophy since winning this competition in 2008.

Remarkably, this year's final will be stand-in manager Ryan Mason's second game in charge of north London side and will bid to give the club their first piece of silverware since 2008.

City, who are also gunning for the Premier League title and the Champions League this season, will go into the game knowing that this is their final to lose.

Here, SPORTbible takes a look at everything you need to know ahead of the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur predictions and betting odds

Despite the sensation departure of Jose Mourinho, Tottenham look in good spirits with boyhood fan and former player Ryan Mason winning his first game in charge.

Manchester City, meanwhile, lost the FA Cup semi-final before beating Aston Villa, but conceded after 20 seconds and saw John Stones sent off.

Harry Kane's involvement will be key for Spurs, but even he might not be able to stop City from lifting the cup for a fourth year in a row.

Manchester City are 1/2 to win, with Tottenham Hotspur priced at 11/2 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 16/5.

Manchester City team news and injuries

Manchester City are ever more confident that Kevin De Bruyne will be fit after being forced off in the FA Cup semi-final, but his involvement with the Champions League semi-final on the horizon is certainly not guaranteed.

Having said that, Phil Foden was a standout in De Bruyne's absence against both Chelsea and Aston Villa and should start, though Pep Guardiola must make a decision on who to play and who to rest.

Elsewhere, Gabriel Jesus could get a run, while John Stones is still suspended following his red card on Wednesday.

Tottenham Hotspur team news and injuries

Tottenham will be praying that Harry Kane will be fit and, if so, will he be fit enough?

Either way, Heung-min Son will start and is expected to be supported by Welsh star Gareth Bale, who once again impressed in a rare outing last time out.

Dele Alli remains short of match fitness, but will be hoping to come off the bench, meaning Argentinian Giovani Lo Celso should keep his place in midfield.

In defence, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier were not the most reassuring against Southampton, with Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon pushing for minutes.
