Title-chasing Manchester City face a huge game against Tottenham here, with a vital three points on offer – that’s why Manchester City vs Tottenham will be a doozer. Had things worked out a little differently for Tottenham, they could have been up at the top challenging with Manchester City, but instead, they are fighting for the top four after their small squad has caught up with them.
Manchester City vs Chelsea Head to Head
Last Three Meetings
- October 2018 – Tottenham 0-1 Manchester City
- April 2018 – Tottenham 1-3 Manchester City
- December 2017 – Manchester City 4-1 Tottenham
As you can see above, Manchester City have won the last three meetings between the teams as they continue to be a dominant force in the Premier League.
However, it isn’t too long ago when Tottenham were beating them, with three wins in a row for Spurs during 2015 and 2016. They would love that again, to aid their top four chances although there is no doubt that the trip to the Etihad Stadium is the toughest in the Premier League.
Although their win this season was only a 1-0 victory, Manchester City scored three and four goals past Tottenham in the two meetings last season, and if Tottenham are to have any chance of winning they have to work out how to defend against City.
Manchester City Team News
One of the main reasons why Manchester City are regarded as the best team in the Premier League is because of the quality options they have in their squad.
They have an abundance of talent that cannot get in their team, and when you get to the end of the season, their fresh legs have the ability to win games against tired teams.
Tottenham Team News
That is exactly what Tottenham are, a tired team. They have not made a signing for two transfer windows now, while allowing players to leave the club and that has left them with a small squad.
At the top of the league, competing in numerous competitions you simply cannot afford that, and it is coming back to haunt Tottenham now. They will improve in the summer, but that will not help now, and they are struggling to perform at their best right now, mainly because they are so tired.
Manchester City vs Tottenham Match Prediction
Manchester City are one of the best teams in Europe, let alone in the Premier League and they are a formidable force when playing at home. City have the attacking strength to score past anyone, and as we saw last season, they are capable of scoring plenty of goals past Tottenham.
Playing Manchester City is hard enough at any point during the season, but taking them on towards the end of the season when everyone is tired makes it an even tougher task. It is for that reason that I am backing a Manchester City win here, I think they will be too strong for Spurs in this game, and I think City will be able to score three or four goals against them once more.
