What Trueform says for Man City vs Tottenham
Manchester City were knocked out of the Champions League by Tottenham in midweek but can gain some small revenge by prevailing in the Premier League.
With such a quick turnaround after that epic contest, the fatigue factor and squad rotation could play a part in Saturday’s early kick-off.
The Blues have far more strength in depth and 3/4 for them to win by more than one goal is our initial Man City vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City will be kicking themselves after coming up short in Europe’s elite club competition once again, going out on the away goals rule after winning 4-3 here on Wednesday.
Raheem Sterling’s brace and goals from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero gave the Blues victory on the night, but that was not enough to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit.
However, Pep Guardiola’s men still have a domestic treble to chase and nine straight Premier League wins have given them every chance of retaining this title.
“We are very disappointed,” said Silva. “Obviously, we wanted to qualify for the semi-finals.
“We’re disappointed with the result and the way we conceded the goals, but I think the way the team played was very good. It was fantastic, especially after being 2-1 behind.
“It’s not a very good feeling to have, but that’s football. Now we have to focus on the Premier League and FA Cup. We will have to forget about it and go for the competitions we are still in.”
City dominated for long periods in midweek and have won the last three Premier League meetings with Spurs.
They can also bring in the likes of Leroy Sane, Riyad Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi to freshen things up if required.
Looking at the Man City vs Tottenham odds, we’re going with the fast-starting Blues to lead at half-time and full-time at 17/20.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Mendy, Gundogan, De Bruyne, B Silva, D Silva, Sterling, Aguero.
Oleksandr Zinchenko (hamstring) is back in contention for City after returning to training and midfielder Fernandinho could start after returning as a substitute following a muscular problem in midweek.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham struck twice on the break through Son Heung-min and enjoyed the benefit of the doubt when Fernando Llorente’s bundled effort survived a VAR review for possible handball.
Spurs received another boost from television evidence when Sterling’s stoppage-time effort was dramatically ruled out for offside.
Mauricio Pochettino insisted: “The most important thing now is we are in the semi-final and we deserve to be in the semi-final. My players are heroes.”
However, whether they can raise their game to such a level again, and enjoy the rub of the green once more away from home, remains to be seen.
With Harry Kane absent and Dele Alli troubled by a broken hand, Pochettino’s resources will be stretched if anyone is suffering from tired legs.
Next week’s home games versus Brighton and West Ham will give Spurs the chance to re-establish their top-four credentials, even if leaving empty-handed here.
Let’s finish off our Man City vs Tottenham betting tips by taking 19/2 for a 3-1 home victory.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Wanyama, Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen, Moura, Son.
Tottenham will check on Moussa Sissoko after the midfielder came off with a groin injury on Wednesday.
Harry Kane (ankle), Harry Winks (groin) and Serge Aurier (hamstring) all miss out, but Eric Dier is ready to return to training.
