It is second against first when Tottenham welcome Man City to White Hart Lane. Both sides have enjoyed massively impressive starts to their respective campaigns. Spurs want to build on last season’s third placed finish, while Man City seem to be enjoying life under Pep Guardiola.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City Tips
Despite these two sides being some of the best in the Premier League so far this season, we can see City showing true class on the pitch and taking the win comfortably. That is to say, the result will appear comfortable. For Man City to win by two goals, the odds are 5/1.
The striking stat going into this game is that despite these two sitting atop the Premier League there is already a four point gap, largely thanks to City’s 100% start. Six wins from six, eighteen goals scored and only five conceded means it is difficult to really see anyone getting even close to the Citizens this year. Spurs have a top manager in Mauricio Pochettino, however, and this tactical battle between two genuinely great managers will surely provide a spectacle.
Betting Tips: Winner
Man City will be seen as favourites against pretty much anyone if they can maintain their current form, but in Spurs they have a genuine task ahead of them. Predictions will vary wildly depending on who you are speaking to at the time, but for the purposes of this preview we are going to have to opt for another City win. The Blues can be backed at 11/10. That may be a boring betting tip, but it would appear somewhat naïve to suggest any other!
Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City: Number of winning goals
Despite these two sides being the best in the Premier League so far this season, we can see City showing true class on the pitch and taking the win comfortably. That is to say, the result will appear comfortable. For Man City to win by two goals, the odds are 5/1. We are sure Spurs will put up a real fight for possession, and if their midfielders can hit their stride then they will pose a definite threat.
Predictions: Player To Watch
Sergio Aguero will, of course, be the player to watch in this game. The Argentinian international has bagged five goals from the first six games, and has a 50% shots-on-target ratio with seven of his 14 shots so far testing the keeper or going in. Spurs’ defence will have to be at their peak if they can hope to deal with Aguero and co.
