Manchester City v Tottenham Betting Preview
Venue: Etihad Stadium
Channel: BT Sport 1
Manchester City will host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, and Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking to further extend both their unbeaten run and their massive point gap over their city rivals, Manchester United. It’s been a very interesting month for Spurs, and having picked up 8 points from their last 6 matches after their defeat in the North London, they’ll be going to the Etihad eager to prove they’re one of the Premier League’s top clubs.
However, eagerness won’t bring down the rock-solid fortress Guardiola has managed to build, so Pochettino will have to find ways to either bring it down or risk being crushed, and the Argentine manager has already shown his enthusiasm towards the match. Despite the Cityzens tremendous possession-style football, all good things tend to come to an end. Will Harry Kane & Co. create and execute enough chances to finally inflict damage on a perfect Manchester City?
Missing out for City are arguably three of their best defenders: Benjamin Mendy, John Stones and club captain Vincent Kompany. Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld are both still injured, whereas Davinson Sánchez will complete his 3-game ban after picking up a red card for elbowing Richarlison.
Potential Man City Starting XI: Ederson, Delph, Otamendi, Mangala, Walker, Silva, Fernandinho, de Bruyne, Sané, Agüero, Sterling.
Potential Tottenham Starting XI: Lloris, Davies, Vertonghen, Dier, Trippier, Eriksen, Dembélé, Winks, Dele, Son, Kane
