Manchester City host Tottenham in a crunch fixture. Pep Guardiola is looking to hold on to top spot in the league while Mourinho’s Tottenham are dreaming of a top 4 finish.
Manchester City lost the reverse fixture at Tottenham Hotspur stadium by 2 goals to nothing and will be looking to revenge the defeat. City are the most in form team in Europe top 5 leagues right now having won their last 15 matches keeping 10 cleansheets in the period.
That’s an alarming stat and it tells you everything you need to know with Manchester City. They destroyed defending champions Liverpool at Anfield in their last league match and are full of confidence going into this match against Mourinho’s Tottenham.
Manchester City are without Fernandinho, Nathan Ake, and Kevin De Bruyne for this clash with Kun Aguero still a doubt. This means Manchester City likely formation is
Ederson Moraes; Ruben Dias, John Stones, Joao Cancelo, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri, Bernado Silva, Phil Foden; Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling
Tottenham are without Lo Celso, Sergio Reguilon, Gareth Bale, and Serge Aurier. This means Mourinho will have to lineup in the usual 4-3-3 formation of : Hugo Lloris; Ben Davies, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez; Moussa Sissoko, Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hoejbjerg: Heung-Min Son, Harry Kane, Bergwijn
Manchester City are heavy favourites to claim a victory in this Saturday evening clash against Tottenham Hotspur and we are banking on them to do just that. Pep Guardiola side are profiting from the absence of a target man. This means anyone can score from anywhere. It makes it difficult for the opposing team to pinpoint a man for marking. They will have the bulk of the possession with Tottenham relying on counters through the Speedy Son and Bergwijn.
It’s not going to be easy for Tottenham considering their shocking defense record of recent. Jose Mourinho has been shuffling the defense with the hope of finding the perfect combo to no avail. Dier is out of form and prone to error like the one against Chelsea. It is going to be a long evening for Jose Mourinho as they will be chasing shadows throughout the game.
Manchester City strong form should continue and they should seal a 2-0 win at the Etihad.
Manchester City to score atleast 2 goals
