Tottenham Hotspur at Manchester City
|Date & Time||Saturday April 20, 2019, 7:30 AM (EDT)|
Manchester City -278 / Tottenham Hotspur +700 / Draw +375
Tottenham and Manchester City will play for the third time this month as the two teams meet at the Etihad Stadium for a match in the English Premier League.
Tottenham lost midweek to Manchester City but the Spurs did enough to score 3 away goals which allowed them to make it into the final 4 of the Champions League. Tottenham displayed great attacking skill as Son and Llorente scored goals away from home. The defense was very poor for Tottenham as they allowed Manchester City to score 4 goals. Looking closer at the Premier League, Tottenham must win every remaining game to ensure they make the top 4. With that in mind, the pressure will be high on the Spurs.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City will look to get some revenge by beating the team that eliminated them from the Champions League. Manchester City played reasonably well midweek as they scored 4 goals. Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva all scored but it wasn’t enough as the team conceded too many home goals. Manchester City are still favourites to win the Premier League but with Liverpool close behind, the Sky Blues will be determined to get 3 points from this home fixture.
Tottenham and Manchester City also met earlier in the season in the Premier League. The match was played at Wembley where Manchester City won 1-0.
Tottenham have been very inspiring in the Champions League and they will have confidence in their ability to cause more problems for Manchester City. That being said, I am going to pick Manchester City to win. Manchester City are a stronger team and at home they are very tough to beat. Manchester City managed to win their home leg against Tottenham and I see them repeating that result over the weekend and getting another 3 points on the board.
