Contributor’s Pick

According to Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur H2H Stats, Manchester City have lost three, drawn one and won only one of their previous five matches against Tottenham Hotspur. However, Pep Guardiola’s side come into this game on the back of fifteen consecutive wins and have all but clinched the Premier League title by opening up a considerable lead at the top of the table.

Manchester City have scored at least 2 goals in their last ten matches in the Premier League, and there have been over 2.5 goals in 11 of Manchester City’s last 13 matches against Tottenham in all competitions, so it should be a high-scoring affair.

Although Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in their last two trips to the Etihad stadium, Manchester City are likely to be victorious. It should be a closely contested affair but Manchester City are likely to win 3-1 tomorrow.

Manchester City come into this match on top of the table by 11 points over rivals Manchester United and then a further four to third place Chelsea. They have won 15 in a row, a record in the top flight of English football. This is an amazing run they are on, and it will put an even bigger target on their back than what they would have already had. As for Spurs, they are inside the top four again- for the moment- after two wins in a row. They are on 31 points and lead Liverpool and Burnley only on goal difference.

Manchester City have yet to lose a single match overall, and they have been nearly perfect at home as well. The only dropped points at the Etihad for them was a draw with Everton at the start of the season when they went down to ten men. As for Spurs, they are just the sixth best away side thus far. They have collected 13 points, including four wins and a draw, in their eight matches away from Wembley so far. They had been one of the better away teams, but they have slipped back a little of late after losing three in a row recently.
If Tottenham had their best team out they would give them a game but I don't think they will do it with the defenders they have out. Toby Alderweireld is probably the best defender in the world in my opinion and he is badly missed. And Davinson Sanchez is out along with Victor Wanyama, so they are missing big players. Otherwise it would have been game on.

I do think we are getting a bit carried away with City though. It's great what they are doing but great teams win things and they haven't won anything yet.City are playing great, don't get me wrong, but you have to remember that 10 years ago anybody could beat anybody. The gap between top and bottom now is enormous, whereas 10 years ago a team like Stoke could be bottom of the league and you would go there and it would be one of your hardest games of the season. That's not the case now.

Both teams to score is at 6/10 via Ladbrokes
