Manchester City vs Tottenham Match Preview and Team News

Manchester City

City has always found it tough to play this Spurs side which almost brought their title race to a half last season in this very fixture. In fact, Guardiola actually does not favor playing Antonio Conte’s three-man defensive style and does not have an exceptional record against the Italian. So, we are pretty sure that the reigning champions will bring their A-game in this game and score over 2.5 goals alone. With seven wins from nine home games, it looks simply evident that City will take all three points, too (especially with Arsenal running away at the top and United breathing down their necks). Phil Foden shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Jack Grealish is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. John Stones joins Ruben Dias on the nursing table in Guardiola’s camp. While the Portuguese center-back has been out since the World Cup with a hamstring injury and has a return date of January end, his English teammate picked up a knock in the past week and shall not be available for this game on Thursday. With both center-backs out, the Spanish coach is highly likely to switch back to a back-four and play the duo of Nathan Ake and Manuel Akanji in this game.


Tottenham has scored in each of their last three away games in the league now. Away from home (in total), they have 16 goals from nine matches played too. To add to it, City has not kept a clean sheet in three of their last five home games played and in five of their previous seven games in totality. There is no doubt that Harry Kane and Erling Haaland will be rubbing their hands in anticipation of Thursday. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg plays great and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Dejan Kuluševski is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, and he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. While City is a bit thin in the defense, Spurs lack some offensive depth to injuries. Recent signing Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus is out with a muscle injury, and although he is back in solo training, the attacking midfielder cannot be expected to make it to the starting eleven on this trip to Manchester.
