Despite their obvious attacking threat, Manchester City's defence has caught the eye in recent months, with John Stones forming a strong partnership with Ruben Dias in central defence. Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is enjoying a season to remember, while last season's Alan Hardaker Trophy winner Phil Foden has become an integral part of the City attack.
Harry Kane is just one of several high-profile attacking players at Tottenham Hotspur's disposal, and has formed a fantastic relationship with Heung-min Son this season. The duo have often proven too hot to handle in 2020/21, while Gareth Bale is no stranger to the big occasion and can always provide a spark. Midfield duo Tanguy Ndombele and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have also had standout individual campaigns.
