EPL; Manchester City Vs Tottenham Preview And Analysis
Category : News
This Saturday, Manchester City will host Tottenham in the EPL.
With 42points, the Citizens are 5th on the table.
Lately they haven`t been very convincing, losing two out of last four competitive games, without scoring a goal in these two matches. First, they lost to Liverpool 1:0, and in the last league game Everton beat them 4:0. It was a game in which City looked powerless, with Everton being the better team and deservedly taking all three points.
However, the result maybe was a little big too high, since Everton scored from every shot on goal. City have only one defeat at home this season – against Chelsea, scoring in every game. They will miss injured Gundogan for this match, while Kompany will be questionable.
Tottenham are second, with three points more than City. They have been in great form lately, recording seven straight wins in all competitions. The most impressive victory was surely against current leaders Chelsea – it was 2:0 in White Heart Lane. In the last league game Tottenham thrashed WBA 4:0, with three goals from Harry Kane. They will miss Vetonghen and Lamela for thsi game, both injured.
In the reverse fixture Tottenham won 2:0. It was the game in which Tottenham dominated from the first whistle, and even missed a penalty.
This time the Spurs are coming into the game in even better form, at the toughest time possible for City. However, City has only one home defeat this season, scoring in every game. Also, aside from the last two away games, Tottenham didn`t have a win on the road for eight consecutive mathces. Both teams will need a win here to stay close to Chelsea, and therefore we should see an open game here. City are capable of scoring, especially at home, while Tottenham has one of the best attacks in the league, spearheaded by in-form Kane. I think we will see more than two goals here, and I like the odds for that to happen.
Take over 2.5 goals at full time. Odd 1.80
