Manchester City vs Tottenham 21 Jan 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Biggest game of this weekend is possibly taking place on Saturday and Pep and his Manchester City side play host to a red hot Tottenham Hotspurs side. Both sides know that this is a must win considering how close the top teams are this year so I am expecting a good match.

Manchester City need to sort out their defense as this is turning into a big problem for them. John Stones is not playing well and the rest of the backline are not doing any better than he is. Furthermore, the keeper, Claudio Bravo, is a mess at the moment and this is causing Manchester City to struggle greatly. This needs to improve in this game if the home team are to have any chance of winning.

Tottenham on the other hand are in amazing form and are beating any team they come up against. This week will another challenge but I think this team has what it takes to be supremely successful and I think they will be able to get all three points here.

As far as betting is concerned, I think we are getting a good enough price to bet on this game since Spurs seems to only be slight favorites at the moment. This is good value so I would recommend a larger stake. I also like the over 2.5 goals since Manchester City have defensive problems and both teams have what it takes to score goals.
