Tottenham lead 1-0 from the first leg; winner plays Juventus or Ajax in the semi-finals

Last Updated: 16/04/19 5:02pm

Tottenham won the first leg 1-0 last week

Harry Kane is out and Dele Alli is a doubt as Tottenham take on Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Etihad on Wednesday.

Heung-Min Son's 78th-minute goal saw Spurs win 1-0 in the first leg, but Kane left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on crutches last week, while Alli also broke his hand during the game.

Alli has returned to training and will be assessed ahead of the clash, along with Erik Lamela, who is recovering from a hamstring issue.

Manchester City are bidding to win the quadruple this season and defender John Stones has urged his team to "dream big".

"I don't think a lot of things are impossible, that is the mindset of different people.

"If you don't dream big then you are not going to get anywhere near it. It comes from within everyone, we have this belief and ambition to do it.

For Man City, Oleksandr Zinchenko has not trained and is set to miss out.

But Pep Guardiola confirmed that Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are set to be fit, while Fernandinho could feature after missing Sunday's win against Crystal Palace with a muscular problem.

Along with Kane, Spurs are without Serge Aurier (hamstring), Eric Dier (hip) and Harry Winks (groin).

This will be another tight affair. Man City have to score with another couple of goals and see if they can flex their muscles and get something.

I see Raheem Sterling and his pace, it is just brilliant to watch. His goal against Crystal Palace, for example. The ball from Kevin De Bruyne combined with the run inside the man from Sterling was just sensational. I hope for their sake they start Sterling, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero once again, as these can damage Tottenham, who will sit in and play on the counter-attack with Lucas Moura's pace.

He scored a great hat-trick at the weekend. It is whether they are good enough to keep the ball. Harry Winks will come back in and play with Moussa Sissoko while Christian Eriksen will play further up.

Sometimes you can force the pass in these games and the key to this game is De Bruyne. He has the determination to find the pass and he is good without the ball as well. Man City will go through - it will go right to the wire, but City are still holding the edge at this moment. Even at the weekend, they conceded to make it 2-1 but had the final push to get another.
