The Premier League match of the week features Tottenham Hotspur taking on league leaders Manchester City as the league’s two remaining undefeated teams. This one should be a cracker.
A less than inspired first month of the season has given way to the Tottenham we saw challenge for the league title a year ago.
Spurs got out of the gates rather slowly with draws to Everton (away) and Liverpool at home, around a less than convincing 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. They’ve since righted things and are riding a four match win streak.
If this team is to challenge for a league title, winning games against top tier opposition early is crucial.
This team had a tremendous run last year, but this year they have the added workload of Champions League play, so winning these games while the legs are still fresh is a key if Tottenham are to make a run at the EPL title.
Defensively, Spurs have been excellent this year, allowing more than one goal just once, in their first Champions league game against Monaco where they were defeated 2-1.
Spurs have posted three clean sheets in four matches since that game and have won four straight. They will be coming into this heavyweight tilt on a good run of form and they will have the crowd behind them.
We’ve seen this movie from City before; they’ve started the campaign like a house on fire and are just burning through everyone in their way.
Arguably the most talented side in the Premiership, City have been filling the net with ease, and are averaging three goals per match, with 18 goals accumulated through six matches.
This isn’t a run and gun, wild bunch however, as they’ve surrendered just five into their own net.
Striker Sergio Aguero continues to show that he is one of the most lethal goal scorers in the world and leads the EPL scoring race at five goals from six matches.
Aguero is supported by Kevin De Bruyne and Nolito in the attacking third, along with striking partner Raheem Sterling who has potted four goals himself.
City are coming off a very loose performance in Champions League where they had to battle back from deficits three times to earn a single point away versus Celtic.
Questions may be asked of their defending heading into this match as they were less than spectacular against a weaker side.
Free Tottenham vs Manchester City EPL Prediction:
Spurs took both matches a season ago, but this is a City team that is on a good run of form and have not tasted defeat yet. This will be a cagey affair, as neither side wants to give points to the other.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: DRAW +220
This one has draw written all over it. City are the better attacking side, but Spurs are excellent at soaking up pressure and frustrating the opposition.
I expect City to find a way to break through, but their defensive struggles midweek are a bit of a concern and I’d expect Spurs to be able to find a goal to finish this one on level terms.
EPL Free Score Prediction: Draw 1-1
