Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Manchester City faces a stern test of its title ambitions this Sunday when it hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium. This is a massive fixture, with the winner likely to emerge with a massive boost to their hopes of winning the Premier League title.

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur Trends Analysis

Tottenham Hotspur has tended to dominate Man City in recent seasons, winning six of their last ten encounters while City claimed three wins and a single match ended in a draw. Tottenham has not beaten City once in their last three meetings, while City has won their last two encounters – including a 5-1 hammering of the Spurs earlier this season.

Tottenham’s last visit to Manchester City saw the Spurs lose 1-0.

Manchester City is struggling to maintain momentum on several fronts as the season progresses. While the club’s Premiership campaign is still on course, with the club on top of the league standings, it has bowed out of both the FA Cup and League cup in the last couple of weeks, with two wins and three losses from its last five fixtures.

City has scored 6 goals in its last five matches. The poor performance up front has been matched with some ordinary defending, with 5 goals conceded during the same time period.

Tottenham, meanwhile, is showing real composure as the pressure mounts, with three wins and two draws showing for its last five matches. Despite a disappointing home draw against the Wolves on the weekend, the Spurs are just 5 points off the pace in the Premier League.

Tottenham have scored 8 goals in their last five matches. While the forwards have been solid, it is the defence that has put the Spurs ahead with just 2 goals conceded in five matches, and three matches producing clean sheets.

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips

The pressure is all on City in this fixture as it looks to keep its momentum after losses in the FA Cup and League Cup. Tottenham has had the better form recently, and a solid record against the home team.

Added to this, the Spurs have the best defence in the league at the moment and can close up if the match looks like it is getting away from them. Throw in an attack that has outperformed that of City in recent weeks and you have a potential upset on the cards.

Our Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur betting tip is to go with a lay bet on Man City at Betfair. You’ll not only have a low liability bet, but will also stand to win if Tottenham wins or the match goes to a draw.
