Manchester City vs Tottenham match preview for the Premier League fixture, written by experienced sports betting expert.
Saturday’s Premier League action features an exciting clash between Manchester City and Tottenham. The reigning champions started with a 5-0 away victory against West Ham. ‘The Citizens’ were in control through the whole game and didn’t let a lot of goal scoring opportunities for ‘The Hammers’.
Tottenham started the season with a home game against Aston Villa. ‘The Spurs’ played poorly in the first half and were losing until Tanguy Ndombele scored the equalising goal in the 73 minutes. Harry Kane found the net twice in the last ten minutes of the game to seal the 3-1 win for his side.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that a win for Tottenham is valued so low by the bookies. In the past couple of season, Man City dominates Tottenham in the Premier League, especially at home. Tottenham will be looking to improve their performance in defence, and I expect a defensive approach from Mauricio Pochetino.
Manchester City got two 1-0 wins against Tottenham last season, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the game on Saturday ends in the same scoreline. ‘The Citizens’ play very smart at home against the best teams in the league and most of the derbies end in a low-scoring fashion.
My Manchester City vs Tottenham predictions are Man City to Win and Under 3.5 Goals at odds around 2.30. I will also back Man City 2-0 Correct Score at odds around 8.50. Bet Heaven recommends placing this bet at Bet365.
