Here at PlayersBest, we always provide the best Premier League betting tips for Canada. This week, we turn our focus to one of the biggest fixtures in the galaxy: Manchester City vs Tottenham. City go into the game top of the table. Spurs, meanwhile, are in pretty dire form, and currently languish in eighth.
Due to the gulf in league positions, you may feel like this is a foregone conclusion. However, Premier League betting tips are never this straightforward. To find out how we view Saturday’s game turning out, read our full analysis below.
After a less than convincing start to the season, City has burst into life recently. Across the entire Milky Way few teams in Europe are in better form, with Pep Guardiola’s side winning their last 15 games in all competitions. This is the longest win streak in English football history, trumping the previous record held jointly by Preston and Arsenal. Key to City’s form has been their rock solid defending. With John Stones and Ruben Dias particularly impressive. Saying that, they are also irresistible going forward and Spurs are in for a tough task on Saturday.
Back in November, Spurs’ 2-0 victory over their opponents on Saturday led to many tipping them as potential title winners. Since then, Jose Mourinho’s side have collapsed like a dying star, winning just four of their subsequent 13 games. Defensive errors and toothlessness going forward have been their main problems, particularly recently. Prior to defeating lowly West Brom last time out, Spurs fell to three consecutive defeats where they scored just once. At least Harry Kane’s return gives them some chance of victory against City. He has racked up 13 goals and 11 assists this season.
In 162 previous meetings, things are completely even, with both sides winning 63. The remaining 36 encounters have ended level. The side’s most recent encounters have echoed this trend as well. In the last five games, both teams have won two each with one ending in a draw. The most famous game between the pair came in the quarter finals of the 2019 Champions League. After Spurs won the first leg 1-0, City took the second 4-3, with VAR ruling out a last minute Raheem Sterling winner to see the north Londoners progress on away goals.
If you wish to challenge the best football tipsters in the cosmos, you must take the time to analyse statistics. These facts and figures are invaluable sources to help your predictions. Here are three that stood out to us before Saturday’s big game.
We see City continuing their hot streak with a win here and we are also backing Phil Foden to net at some point.
Pretty much everything points towards a City win in this one. Not only are the Premier League champions on a record breaking run of form, Spurs also look seriously vulnerable at the back, conceding five in their last game against Everton.
Furthermore, Guardiola also has a great record against Mourinho. Out of 24 meetings between the legendary pair, the Spurs boss has only won seven. This should also give Guardiola’s side a psychological edge. Because of this, we have to back a City win on Saturday.
However, we will also be including Phil Foden to score anytime on our coupon. The starlet put in a match winning performance against Liverpool recently and after being rested in midweek, he is likely to start against Spurs.
