Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur Tips & Predictions
17th August 2019 – 17:30
Match Preview & Team News
Manchester City responded to Liverpool’s 4-1 drubbing of recently-promoted Norwich City by bagging five goals in a demolishing victory over West Ham United the day after away in the capital. The reigning champions thus climbed to the very top of the standings on goal difference, but staying there after the Matchday No 2 will require a strong showing on Saturday when they are about to face their first true test of the new campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur come to visit Etihad Stadium in the derby of the round and the clash which could well shape up the top of the standings. Spurs were far less convincing in their inaugural match, but they managed to survive a stern Aston Villa test and snatch a 3-1 comeback victory in North London. The most recent acquisition Tanguy Ndombele brought them on level terms with a goal on his official Spurs debut, while Harry Kane struck two quick goals to inspire the 3-1 victory seven days ago.
Can the Champions League finalists cause any troubles to Pep Guardiola’s machinery here? They proved strength by picking up results against the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid, and Bayern Munich in the pre-season. However, they still come into this tie as 8/1 favourites to win. Such massive price is worth taking advantage of regardless of statistics the Citizens had last season. Pep Guardiola’s men won 18 of 19 home matches in the previous term of the Premier League and they have won six of last seven head to head clashes with Tottenham.
Asian Handicap Odds & Prediction
The main bet will be Tottenham Hotspur not to lose by two or more goals difference at the odds of 9/10.
Goalscorers Market Prediction
Harry Kane completed a brace against Aston Villa and we will back him to score anytime past the champions at the odds of 2/1.
