Manchester City vs Tottenham: A home draw, against Everton, on the 2nd round of the Premier League
That’s the only match where Manchester City dropped points in the current edition of the competition.
Pep Guardiola team’s dominance on this competition was once again highlighted on their win on the Manchester derby, on the past Sunday, which helped them elevate their advantage on the league table to 11 points.
Looking forward to a month of December that usually makes a distinction between title contenders in the Premier League, the Citizens’ passage through this busier period of the schedule has been uncontested.
At the same time, looking at their schedule, this match against Tottenham will be the hardest of the ones they still have to play.
For the Spurs, this match as an effective importance, considering their position in the league.
They sit in 4th place with the same points of Liverpool and Burnley, only 1 point above Arsenal, which means Tottenham are at serious risk of dropping to 7th place at this stage of the competition.
The gamble on the Champions League, where they won the group they shared with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, led to some dropped points after the European rounds.
But Tottenham’s big difficulty of the season is managing to beat the other title contenders.
Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all managed to beat the Spurs.
Manchester City vs Tottenham – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The number of matches played at this stage of the season will lead to a management of the roster that will end up having consequences on the way the starting line-ups are selected.
Manchester City has more depth on their roster to manage the team, while Tottenham will lack Davison Sánchez, who will serve this Saturday the last of his 3-match suspension after being sent off against Watford.
Not being a decisive aspect, it could increase even more the difference between the two teams.
