Manchester City vs Tottenham Match Preview
Manchester City took a huge leap towards Premier League title when they defeated Manchester United last weekend and extended their winning streak to 15 by defeating Swansea in the midweek. The runaway leaders will be at home this weekend facing Tottenham Hotspur. This Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture would be played on Saturday, December 16 at the Etihad Stadium so read the match preview, betting tips and predictions.
Manchester City these days do not even draw their matches, they only keep winning. Like Swansea bore the brunt (4-0) in the midweek, there is never a let down in their energy levels as Pep Guardiola’s men look all set to scale new heights. It is not yet new year and we are into only 17 matches in the league, but it is almost certain that City will end up lifting the title. They are 11 points away from crosstown rivals United whom they defeated 2-1 away from home. At home, City have dropped their only points this season, against Everton. Since then, the hosts have won seven on the spin, scoring 27 (avg. of 3.86 per game) and conceding just five (avg. of 0.71 per game).
Tottenham have had great Premier League campaigns in the past couple of years and were expected to be one of the title challengers. They did start well but have lost their intensity in the last couple of months that saw them drop to fourth, 17 points away from City. The real target now for Mauricio Pochettino’s side is to stay in the Champions League places. However, their record against the big teams this season has been a worry as they have already lost to Arsenal and Manchester United away from home while losing at home to Chelsea. They have a record of W2, D2, L2 from their last six matches and it doesn’t inspire confidence ahead of this Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur fixture.
