Manchester City vs. Tottenham preview: Spurs favorites if Zack Steffen starts? | ESPN FC

Ahead of Sunday's Carabao Cup final (11:30 a.m. ET, ESPN+), ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Steve Nicol preview the match between Manchester City and Tottenham, and Archie Rhind-Tutt joins to discuss the news he reported Friday afternoon about Spurs' search for a new manager.

0:00 Burley doesn't have a problem with Pep Guardiola sticking with USMNT goalkeeper Zack Steffen in goal for Manchester City after his mistake against Chelsea in the FA Cup.
0:52 Nicol disagrees, saying Guardiola should field his best team in a final, which means starting Ederson.
2:23 Rhind-Tutt elaborates on his report from earlier in the day that a source close to RB Leipzig tells him Julian Nagelsmann has interest in Tottenham as a fan, and the source's comment that the manager and club would be "a perfect match."
5:28 Burley calls Nagelsmann the polar opposite of Jose Mourinho, but isn't sure a move to Spurs makes sense for the young German coach.

6:47 Rhind-Tutt rebuttals by laying out why the timing makes sense for Nagelsmann to leave Leipzig, even if he doesn't take over at Bayern Munich, and says his age could be a benefit at Tottenham, where Mourinho struggled to connect with younger players.
8:20 Burley says he would want assurance Harry Kane was not leaving if he were to take the Tottenham job.
