Premiership – Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview

Manchester City come into this game on the back of a 2-0 victory away to Aston Villa, they currently sit 2nd in the table 5 points off league leaders Chelsea. Manuel Pellegrini has admitted that his side are yet to hit full throttle and said there is more to come from his side that lifted the Premiership Trophy last season. With an important Champions League Group Stage match in mind for midweek it will be interesting to see whether Pellegrini rests some of his better players. City will be looking to keep the pressure on Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea and send out a message to the rest of the league by drubbing Spurs.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side come into this game after he lead his side to defeat his former club, Southampton, Spurs ran out 1-0 winners which moved them up to 6th in league standings. With the league being competitive as ever it is crucial that Tottenham can get points from tough away games to give themselves the best opportunities to qualify for Europe next season. A win for Spurs on Saturday would take them level on points with Man City so I expect them to be hungry as ever.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini has a fully fit squad going into this game. I expect Joe Hart to keep his place in goal and Edin Dzeko and Kun Aguero to lead the line up front.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News

Spurs go into this game without Kyle Walker who is still unavailable due to injury. The rest of Mauricio Pochettino’s team are fit and raring to go.

In the 127 games played prior to Saturday Lunchtime’s one there has been a total of 367 goals scored. Manchester City have netted 194 in comparison to Tottenham’s 173. This gives us an average of 2.89 goals per game.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Current Betting Odds Market

Manchester City are the favourites to win this game and it is no surprise as they’re the English Premiership Champions and have a far superior team to Tottenham. With the home advantage I expect City to ease to victory in Saturday Lunchtime’s game. Ladbrokes offer the best price for City to win @ 1/2 – £100 Free Bets for New Customers.

The Draw could be on the cards in this game as I can’t imagine Tottenham going down without a fight but I also cannot foresee City losing at the Etihad again this season. Coral offer the best value for the draw @ 10/3 – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers.

Tottenham Hotspur are the outsiders for this match as they are clearly the weaker team and are playing away from home where they tend to struggle. However if Tottenham can contain City then they have every chance of hitting them on the counter and nicking a result. BetVictor offer the best odds for Spurs to win @ 7/1 – £25 Free Bets For New Customers.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting this match to see a minimum of three goals scored in the Saturday Lunchtime game and if we look a closer look of recent matches between the two clubs, the last 5 matches have all seen at least 3 goals in them so I expect Manchester City to win by a margin of at least two goals and I think both teams will be on the score sheet.

Time for my predictions now and due to the fine goalscoring form he is in I have selected Edin Dzeko to score 2 or more goals as my banker.

My saver is going to be a correct score of Manchester City to win 3-1.
