Manchester City vs Tottenham in the Premier League on Feb 19. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Manchester City vs Tottenham in the Premier League on Feb 19. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

With their gap at the top of the Premier League table still standing at nine points, Manchester City diverted their dominant focus to Europe on Tuesday and in doing so, put five unanswered goals past Sporting Lisbon.

Which is just what an out of sorts Tottenham wanted to see and after losing each of their last three Premier League outings, not only is the top-four race beginning to overtake them, but they are also struggling in terms of the race for the top-six.

Both Teams To Score

With Manchester City being as good as they are right now, I cannot see Tottenham getting any joy from this and therefore, a fourth straight league defeat will soon appear on the cards for Antonio Conte.

While although the betting websites are offering a rather decent price for City to win under the circumstances, there are perhaps better markets to uncover before Saturday evening’s clash at the Etihad.

Which means, goals will be the order of the day in Manchester and although Spurs will come up short after 90 minutes, I can see them joining City on the scoresheet and therefore, backing both teams to score at 11/10 with bet365 comes highly recommended.

Manchester City Form, squad news, opinion

It is now 15 Premier League games unbeaten for Manchester City and of those 15, there has been just one blemish on their record - that being the recent 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s.

Because of that run, Pep Guardiola and his players are once again clear of the Premier League pack and although Liverpool will still have designs on reeling the Etihad outfit in, one wonders if the Merseyside men will eventually run out of games.

While when it comes to running out of goals, that has certainly not been the case for City as of late and with nine scored in the past week, this is a side that is once again warming up at the right point of the season.

They may have started slowly, but that is what City always do and once this team goes up through the gears, it is one of the purest sights within the game of football today - that is unless you are watching from an opposition point of view.

From that standpoint, it is nothing more than 90 minutes of sheer terror and this is exactly what Sporting Lisbon had to deal with on Tuesday, as on a night where everything clicked for the blue half of Manchester, their passage to the Champions League last eight is already secure.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Tottenham, there are no new injury concerns for manager Pep Guardiola to worry about and this means his superstar squad will be at full strength on Saturday.

Tottenham Form, squad news, opinion

Much has been made of Tottenham’s three Premier League games in hand and although this is something of a secret weapon, one wonders if Antonio Conte has the cheat code to make full use of them.

Because although another defeat to Chelsea was largely to be expected, follow up losses to both Southampton and Wolves were not and with the North London outfit now outside of the European places, questions are being asked of Spurs’ latest boss.

The new manager bounce has gone, there is no doubt about that and although there is also no doubt about Conte’s coaching credentials, there is a feeling that he has been outfoxed in recent times.

Which is why the Italian is going to have to remind everyone of his worth and when it comes to challenges within the Premier League, they come no greater than a visit to Manchester City.

A visit that Tottenham could largely do without and if their run of losses is extended to four in a row, there is every chance that they will end the weekend lying 9th in the Premier League and even those games in hand will not be able to save them.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Manchester City, manager Antonio Conte must once again do without the trio of Eric Dier, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga and it is fair to say that the first two of this trio will be sorely missed.

History

As far as history goes between these two clubs, Manchester City have just stolen a march on their North London counterparts. Although, one cannot forget Spurs sensational night at the Etihad in 2019, one where even in defeat they progressed to the last four of that year’s Champions League.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Manchester City have won on 65 occasions, Tottenham 64 and there have been 36 draws

About the Venue

The Etihad has often been accused of being too quiet for the quality of football that unfolds in front of supporters and although City may not have the loudest fanbase in the Premier League, they are more than capable of backing a regularly winning side.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When looking at the outright Premier League odds, Manchester City are clear favourites to defend their possession of the trophy and they will look to further solidify their status as champions elect this Saturday.

While Tottenham will look to derail the light blue juggernaut - not for their own title hopes but because of the need for salvation and if they do suffer a fourth straight league loss, things could get rather ugly on their return to North London.
