Manchester City vs Tottenham Prediction
Beat Guardiola once – kudos to you. Beat the guy twice in a row – you’re the next big thing in football. For all his talent and credentials, Mauricio Pochettino does not really have it in him to defeat the Spanish baldy twice in a week.
The home advantage will largely tilt the favor in Manchester’s favor. Also, take into account that, the Manchester gaffer put on a line-up without some of his favorite starters, which likely played a role in the loss. This time around, he will be unleashing the full wrath of the potential Premier League winners.
In addition, City won four of the last five h2h meetings and seven of the last eight at this venue. Importantly, Manchester won 22 of their last 23 home ties, and 23 of their last 25 in overall. Meanwhile, Spurs lost six of their last seven fixtures on the road.
Finally, Manchester scored two or more goals in 20 of their last 22 home games, and in seven of their last eight home h2h ties. Tottenham, who have conceded two or more in six of their last seven road trips will find it difficult to defend against the onslaught of the Blues.
Expect the hosts to qualify, and count on them to take control of the proceedings right away. Since they are down by a goal, they will go all-in to open the scoring in the first half itself.
