For the next week in-a-row, we’re beating treated to a tasty top six showdown — this time between Manchester City and Spurs.
Naturally, it is going to take some doing to this fixture to emphasise sensationally drama-filled, VAR-infused Champions League match back in April, culminating in the fantastic Pep Guardiola, culminating at his favourite Herno hooded cardigan, crumpling to the ground after the video referee crushed his oil-money-driven European dreams.
However, as is existence, we all go again for one more season. The last couple of league fixtures between these two ended 1-0 in City’s favour, however I’m financing a home success but with the two teams scoring this Saturday.??
Despite demolishing West Ham last week, I did see a small rustiness at the back City, evidenced by West Ham’s pretty hefty xG of 1.34. Obviously we’re just 1 match profound, but that’ll serve as encouragement for Mauricio Pochettino.
Considering Spurs’ openerthey certainly made hard work of the 3-1 win against Aston Villa, but it is not possible to begrudge them all their success, and together with Tanguy Ndombele’s arrival into Spurs midfield, they seem far more balanced, especially using the Frenchman’s forays forward from the centre of the park rising fluidity.
Spurs have scored in seven of their last nine visits on the Etihad–although also losing sevenand because of this I’m glad backing this tip in 7/4.
At times, my second tip is really for the first goal to be performed between 0-24 minutes.
We’ve seen a target over the first 15 minutes of their last four fixtures between City and Spurs, and also a quick start could once again be on the cards in this .
Last week, City scored 19 days in the first 15 minutes of Premier League matches plus a further 14 involving 16-30 minutes; it’s always sensible to anticipate early targets from a Guardiola side.
