Manchester City Prediction – Can Manchester City see off Spurs?

A convincing 5-0 win away at West Ham on the opening day of the new Premier League season gave Manchester City the perfect start to their league title defence as they simply blew away The Hammers despite being away from home at the London Stadium.

That win over West Ham became Manchester City’s 15th league win on the trot in the Premier League which is a staggering sequence of results for Pep Guardiola’s side and one that was a major contributing factor behind City clinching the league title from under Liverpool’s noses.

The hosts have also won their last 9 home matches on the trot which includes last season wins over Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham – the latter being a 1-0 win. However, despite City’s dominance over the majority of the league, they’ve been involved in pretty tight encounters with this evening’s visitors, Tottenham.

Indeed, the previous 4 encounters against Tottenham have seen just a single goal margin separate the two teams, with Manchester City winning 3 of these clashes and Tottenham grabbing 1 win.

City have been in sublime form for some time in the tip flight but in Tottenham they’ll find a stiffer opponent and one that’s equipped to deal with the host’s pressing game.

Tottenham Prediction – Can Tottenham build on Villa win?

The visitors also registered 3 points in last week’s opening day of the Premier League when they saw off Aston Villa with a 3-1 home win at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium which has given Mauricio Pochettino’s a solid starting point in their bid to capture a league title.

Realistically, another top four finish would seem more in Tottenham’s scope as the gulf between Manchester City and Liverpool and the rest of the field seems to have widened over the past season or two, but Tottenham do possess their deadly striker, Harry Kane, who is their jewel in the crown.

Overall results though haven’t quite been as convincing as Spurs would have liked as they’ve suffered 3 defeats out of their last 6 matches, winning just 2 of these matches in what is a disappointing set of results for the London club.

A 1-0 win over Brighton last season and last week’s victory against Aston Villa have been the only highlights recently for Tottenham who have also lost to Manchester City 1-0, West Ham 1-0 and a 1-0 loss away at Bournemouth.

On the plus side, Tottenham possess a strong midfield that consists of defensive midfielders Winks, Sissoko and NDombele with creativity from Eriksen. Also, with Kane scoring a brace last week, this gives Tottenham a decent chance of staying close to City in this clash.


Key-Facts – Manchester City v Tottenham

  • Manchester City have won their last 15 matches on the trot in the EPL
  • Tottenham have lost their last 6 away matches on the trot in the EPL
  • The last 4 meetings between these two teams have been settled by 1 goal


Betting Tips Verdict

Although it’s highly likely that Manchester City will win this clash, Tottenham have enough about them to keep the scores close in this one.
