Man City Hoping to Bounce Back Against Tottenham
Another exciting Premier League Fixture is set to entertain football enthusiasts this upcoming weekend when Manchester City play host to Tottenham Hotspur.
Both teams’ quality can offer huge premise for the fans and also provide potential option for betting lovers who are keen on placing their money for that Saturday, January 21 match.
Not just for football, those keen on bets, can also get themselves involved in another exciting event such as the Grand National 2017 which is quite an interesting option as well.
Getting back into the upcoming football clash, this big match looks to be an important tie for Man City, notably since they suffered a 4-0 defeat in their latest league fixture against Everton.
That heavy loss pretty much slapped Pep Guardiola’s men as they suddenly got themselves in a very difficult situation to even compete for the top four spots.
Not just essential in lifting their current place back into that top four seat, a win over Spurs can certainly help City regain their confidence, which is not at a high level at the moment.
However, several absentees in the midfield, such as Ilkay Gundogan along with Fernandinho, remain a big problem for Guardiola as he has to work on something that can make things work for his side.
Playing in front of their home crowd could be a morale boost for Man City, but considering their recent results, Etihad can also put them under more pressure, especially if they didn’t start well.
Making things more difficult, Spurs themselves are in a very positive form at the moment, as they in contrast, won their latest league fixture 4-0.
Harry Kane’s return of form makes thing much easier for Mauricio Pochettino as the English international can’st seem to stop scoring goals recently.
Already beating City in their first meeting at White Hart Lane, the Lilywhites shouldn’t have much scare on Saturday, despite having to play away at Etihad stadium.
Moreover, the home team’s record at their own ground this season isn’t exactly brilliant either, as they have drawn some matches and even suffered heavy 3-1 defeat from Chelsea not long ago.
That situation showed that Guardiola’s men are yet to make Etihad their fort in terms of taking down opponents and securing three points.
So, Pochettino’s boys will surely push for all three points in that game and won’t just settle for one point, although they might not mind it either.
Checking out on the latest odds, the bookies still favoring Guardiola’s side to take all three points with the probabilities for it being set at 2.10
Spurs’ winning shot isn’t that small either though as they’re chance on getting maximum result is placed at 3.60, while a potential draw result is set at 3.45.
