After an eventful international break, we are climbing into our spacecraft and head at the speed of light back into some Premier League action. The standout tie this weekend is Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham hosting Manchester City on Saturday evening. Both sides have title ambitions this season and the contest will be a serious test.

Recent form analysis

City go into the game in mid table, five points adrift on their opponents in second – albeit with a game in hand. On the surface, this may seem like a tough one to call. However, PlayersBest’s expert team of tipsters possess the best football knowledge in the galaxy. Here is how they see things going this weekend.

Tottenham Hoping to Keep Up Good Form

Although they have been competing on multiple fronts thanks to their Europa League commitments, Spurs have made a seriously impressive start to the season, winning five, drawing two and losing just once. In Harry Kane, Hueng min-Son and new arrival Gareth Bale, they possess one of the best forward lines in Europe and the nine goals they have conceded in the Premier League so far is the joint lowest in the division. It will be interesting to see how Mourinho sets his team up for this one. In big games in the past he has liked to keep things tight and may opt for a conservative approach once again.

Guardiola to Face Nemesis Once Again

City’s start to the season has been pretty underwhelming. For a team looking to reclaim the Premier League title, failing to win four out of their first seven games is pretty disastrous. Last time out against Liverpool they were disappointed to only record a 1-1 draw and their trip to Tottenham – another title rival – will give them the chance to put things right. Guardiola will be confident of getting one over on his old nemesis, Mourinho, as well. In 23 matches against the Portuguese he’s managed 11 victories, six draws and just six defeats.

Head to Head

As two giants of English football, it is no surprise that City and Spurs have met plenty of time before. Historically, there has been very little difference between the two sides. Out of the 161 previous meetings, the Cityzens have won 63 while Spurs have tasted success on 62 occasions. There have been 36 draws. In more recent time however, City have enjoyed a clear advantage, winning five of the last eight contests. The most famous meeting between the two sides came in 2019 when Spurs triumphed over two legs in the Champions League quarter final. It was a seriously dramatic tie.

Our Betting Tip for Today

It’s a tough one to call but we cannot look past City for this one and are expecting an away win. Guardiola has defeated Mourinho many times before and we expect him to improve his record further on Saturday.

City Will Get Their Season Back on Track With a Win

Before the season started, most people were expecting a two horse title race between Liverpool and Manchester City. However, early signs suggest that teams such as Tottenham must now be considered serious contenders.

This makes the contest a particularly important one for both sides at this admittedly early stage of the campaign. Each team has their strengths but our tipsters cannot look past City on Saturday.

Not only have they got a great record against the Lilywhites in recent times, their manager Pep Guardiola has also enjoyed a historically impressive record versus Spurs boss Joe Mourinho. Also, the team should be galvanised to prove their doubters wrong after failing to defeat arch rivals Liverpool last weekend.

Our tip of an away 2-1 win is available at a very generous 17/2 from bet365 – the best odds on the market at the current time.
