It’s been a horrible couple of weeks for Man City.
The Citizens had a chance to win the Premier League title by beating their fierce rivals, Man Utd, and were the favourites to qualify for the Champions League semi-finals against Liverpool. However, they suffered a 3-2 defeat against United despite being 2-0 up at half time and lost both games against Liverpool to crash out of Europe 5-1 on aggregate.
It doesn’t get any easier for Pep Guardiola and his players this weekend. They face a daunting trip to Wembley Stadium to take on a Tottenham side going through their best spell of the season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s troops are showing no signs of slowing down and would love the chance to prove themselves against the EPL champions elect.
Tottenham the Value Bet Increase Man City’s Woes
The defeat in the Manchester derby was the first time this season that Man City lost consecutive games. The second leg loss to Liverpool made it three in a row and there is every chance that it’ll be four in a row after City’s trip to North West London.
When Man City beat Tottenham 4-1 at the Etihad back in December they were praised for their fighting spirit. Spurs took the game to the Citizens when they could and were not averse to the odd strong tackle to try and disrupt the flow of the game. But Man City rolled their sleeves up, refused to be bullied and ended up as the comfortable winners.
That fighting spirit was notably absent during City’s recent defeats.
Guardiola was unable to do anything as his team conceded goals in quick succession in the first half at Anfield and the second half at the Etihad. The inability to group together and kill the game when things are going badly will continue to hamper Man City’s chances, especially in the Champions League.
Pochettino will have been licking his lips when watching the way that City imploded. He likes his players to make fast starts to big matches and early goals certainly helped Spurs beat both Liverpool and Man Utd at home.
You can be sure that the home side will target another fast start on Saturday evening at Wembley to try and deal another blow to Man City’s morale.
We think that approach will help Tottenham go on to win the game. Therefore, we recommend betting on a home win at $3.20 with Palmerbet and on the first Tottenham goal being scored inside 30 minutes at $2.60 with Centrebet.
Eriksen Can Give Spurs the Perfect Start
Man City have failed to score in just one league game so far. The Citizens are far too strong going forwards to believe the 90 minutes will pass without them having a good spell and therefore a bet on both teams to score should pay off without too much trouble at $1.53 with Bet365.
We don’t think that City will score before Tottenham, however, which makes Christian Eriksen look the value bet to score first at $9.50 with Unibet.
The Danish midfielder’s consistency levels are such that he almost always puts in a good performance but he’s really stepped up recently during Harry Kane’s spell on the sidelines.
He can finish off slick passing moves, score from the edge of the area or convert free-kicks so could well get Spurs off to the perfect start.
