Manchester City vs Tottenham Preview
After a devastating loss against the same rival this Wednesday, the Citizens have to bounce back. How? We don’t know, but they simply have to find a way to win, otherwise, this season will become the worst in their history. Their dreams about reaching a treble are already over, but they can’t afford to get out of this one without a victory, because they might lose the Premiership too. Tottenham too hasn’t got any room for mistake. Chelsea, Arsenal, and Machester are just waiting for their slip to jump over them and take their spot in the Champions League next season.
Manchester City Preview
City did win the game but lost the war. And it showed right when most spoke about their poor defense in recent times. From a cornerstone of their play, to the potential weak spot which will be the target to all of their opponents until the season ends, that is the road Guardiola’s backline took. Three goals against injury-sliced Tottenham is a lot, and it turned out that almighty offense couldn’t repair that. That is the bright spot in this team though. The attack has been harassing all the opponents at Etihad since the year started. More than three goals per game is their productivity, and in the last five, they netted 17 times.
Many things are depending on the physical state of the players after Wednesday’s game. Some of those guys who appeared at Etihad three days ago were wounded even before the match, and it is to be expected that few skip this match. It is questionable how many replacements Pochettino has, but his reserves are nearing the end. Still, the mental state of the team is at the highest possible level now, and a moment of inspiration of Son or Lucas Moura could once again set the avalanche which might bring down the Citizens. Tottenham has 7 losses in the previous 8 games on the road, so that is something bad. In all of them, they have allowed at least two goals, But that is something OK for us punters, as we know that the high efficiency is constant in their contests.

When talking about efficiency, just to mention this also. Nine of the latest games at Etihad between these two sides saw over 2.5 goals. Cit won 7 of them, and there are a draw and a Spurs’ win also. In three of the previous five overall matches, Citizens netted three goals.
Manchester City vs Tottenham Predictions and Betting Tips
One thing is sure, and that is high efficiency. Yes, City is an absolute favorite, and there are almost 0% of chances for Tottenham to win or even take one point, but our focus is on goals because the odds are better and the risk is lower when compared to the potential profits. Over 2.5 goals is the first suggestion, and that is the safest bet of the day. Of course, the odds are low, and because of that, we would recommend over 3.5 goals and both teams to score, and also over 1.5 HT.
