- Tottenham v Man City (Over/Under - Over 2.5)
- Tottenham v Man City (Anytime Goalscorer - Bale, G)
Tottenham Hotspur host Manchester City on Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with the opportunity to strengthen their case as Premier League title contenders. Jose Mourinho’s team are just one point off of first-place Leicester City. A win against Manchester City and results going their way elsewhere, would send them to the top of the Premier League table.
Pep Guardiola’s team are 10th in the league with 12 points from 21 possible. Although Manchester City have lost just once this season, which came against Leicester City, they have drawn three times in seven matches. On matchday 8, Manchester City had to come from behind against Liverpool to gain a 1-1 draw. The Cityzens had the chance to claim a victory but Kevin De Bruyne missed a first-half penalty.
Tottenham Hotspur claimed a huge win at home against Manchester City 2-0 last season. Spurs outplayed Guardiola’s team with two goals in the second period. Mourinho will be hungry for another victory.
Saturday’s game is a massive six-point affair in the title race. Tottenham Hotspur would strengthen their position as title contenders with a victory while Manchester City would fall further away from the top of the table with a loss.
Tottenham vs Manchester City Betting Odds
Tottenham Hotspur not only won at home versus Manchester City last season, but they grabbed a 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the season. Spurs are unbeaten in three of their last five games in all competitions versus Manchester City. Their results have improved in recent seasons.
After a controversial 2-2 draw at the Etihad, in which a late Manchester City goal was chalked off due to a handball, Spurs won 2-0 at home. After a scoreless first half, Spurs forward Steven Bergwijn opened the scoring in the 63rd minute. Eight minutes later, Heung-min Son scored a second goal for the home team to kill off the game as a contest. Just before both goals were scored, Manchester City full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko was sent off for a second bookable offence. His sending off came off in the 60th minute.
While Spurs are second in the league, they have only won once at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season. After an opening day loss to Everton, 1-0, they drew back-to-back home games versus Newcastle United and West Ham. In both cases, Spurs allowed opponents to come back to snatch draws. Tottenham did grab a 2-1 win versus Brighton in their last home fixture.
Manchester City are unbeaten on the road with eight points from 12 possible. Their last away match ended in a 1-0 win versus Sheffield United.
Tottenham vs Manchester City Team News
Mourinho has just one player ruled out of Saturday’s game as Matt Doherty is self-isolating after a positive COVID-19 test. There is no return date set at the moment for the full-back's return. Erik Lamela is also ruled out; however, he is recovering from a calf strain injury.
Mourinho could have three other players back in time for kick off on Saturday. Midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is nearly fit from an ankle injury. Defender Japhet Tanganga is nearly ready to return to the team. He has been a long-term injury problem for Mourinho this term. Bergwijn is in line to make the team on Saturday. He scored the winner last February in London.
Guardiola is still without striker Sergio Aguero. After coming back from knee surgery last season, Aguero suffered a thigh injury and remains sidelined heading into matchday 9. Fernandinho is also ruled out of the match. The midfielder is likely to return on matchday 10 for the Cityzens.
Centre-back Nathan Ake is a doubt going into the weekend as is full-back Benjamin Mendy. Raheem Sterling is likely to play although he is also fighting an injury. He is recovering from a calf issue. In Manchester City’s draw with Liverpool, after an intense first half, both sides showed heavy fatigue in the second period as the game slowed down mightily.
Tottenham vs Manchester City Prediction
Nine of the last 16 games between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City finished with both teams scoring goals. Last season’s game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ended 2-0 in favour of Spurs, but their previous match at the Etihad Stadium ended 2-2. Four of Spurs’ last six games in the league ended with both sides scoring. Manchester City also saw four of their last six league games finish with both sides score goals.
Pundits continue to praise Spurs for bringing back Gareth Bale in the transfer window. Bale has a goal in three appearances for Spurs in the league. He has one goal and one assist in six games in all competitions and has played just 301 minutes of football. If Bale wants to show he is still a world-class player and an important part to Spurs title fight, then he needs to score or create a goal versus Manchester City.
Six of the last 10 games in all competitions between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City finished with over 2.5 goals scored. These teams have plenty of firepower and coming off of the international break, which didn’t give top players the chance to rest, the defences could struggle on Saturday. Three of Spurs’ last five games in the league finished with over 2.5 goals scored.
Manchester City, on the other hand, have not seen as many goals in recent matches. The lack of Aguero in the team and fatigue from playing on multiple fronts have prevented them from scoring. They should find the back of the net this weekend versus Spurs in a high-scoring match.
Tottenham Hotspur’s actual points are right on target with their expect points. They have taken 17 points and have an expected point total of 15.56. Manchester City are also right on target with their points, having taken 12 actual points compared to an expected figure of 11.40.
So, which side will claim the points on Saturday? It should be a close, cagey, back and forth game. Both sides should score as the match finishes in a draw after 90 minutes in north London.
