Tottenham vs. Man City – Betting Preview
When Manchester City plays Tottenham on Sunday, they are anxious to close the gap at the top of the Premier League.
So going into this one, that’s the narrative to keep in mind!
The race for first place in the rankings continues as Spurs and Man City square off once more.
Due to surgery in the middle of last week, Antonio Conte will not be leading Spurs.
Since that 4-2 loss against City a little more than a fortnight ago, they have won their previous two games.
They have played one more game than fourth-placed Manchester United and are currently three points outside the top four.
Spurs’ manager, Conte, is the team’s greatest absentee since he is having gallbladder surgery.
The unexpected transfer of Matt Doherty to Atletico Madrid on Deadline Day necessitates a reorganisation of the right side.
As being rested for the FA Cup last week, Harry Kane will return to captain the offence.
Pedro Porro might make his debut, but Spurs now have options in their lineup as the injury list slowly gets smaller!
Man City Preview
These two just prepared a timeless dish at the Etihad the last time around!
But now, City have played one more than Arsenal and sit five points behind at present, though Arsenal have the chance to make it eight points when they play 24 hours earlier.
They did beat the Gunners in their last outing in the FA Cup – a result that made it three wins on the bounce!
On team news front, Joao Cancelo’s departure should mean a sustained run at left back for Nathan Ake.
While Riyad Mahrez and Jack Grealish are pushing for the wing slots, as Erling Haaland will lead the line!
1×2 Betting Odds
Although Tottenham Hotspur has previously caused problems for Manchester City, they will have their work cut out for them in this matchup.
The market has deemed them as the underdogs in this @ 4.65.
This season, Manchester City is yet to find its footing in the Premier League, and they will have to put in significant effort to keep up with Arsenal in the title battle. The defending champs have plenty to show this weekend because they are currently going through a transition!
Manchester City should be able to win this game because they are currently the superior team.
As is the case in most games they play, City are the favourites to win @ 1.82.
The market odds of a draw, and advantage Arsenal, stands @ 4.33.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.71.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.35.
Spurs being at home will hope to take the game to Man City. But City will be happy to pick them off as and when they choose to do it. Both defences are rather suspect and the attacking quality is incredible!
So as the over/under odds paint the picture, expect a high scoring drama between England’s best!
