Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur Preview, Premiership, 21st January 2017

Manchester City head into this game currently placed in 5th position of the premiership league table on 42pts having secured 13 wins, 3 draws and 5 defeats from their 21 matches played.

The hosts have seen any chance of winning the premiership title dwindle away in recent months as they have now fallen 10pts behind current league leaders Chelsea and it seems that their manager Pep Guardiola has been brought down to earth about how strong this league is compared to others in Europe.

Saturday’s evening match against Tottenham Hotspur will be a real test for the hosts who with defeat could lose 5th place to arch rivals Manchester United and it will be interesting to see how the players react after their recent 3-0 humiliation loss against Everton last time out.

Tottenham Hotspur head into the game currently placed in 2nd position of the premiership league table on 45pts having secured 13 wins, 6 draws and 2 defeats from their 21 matches played.

The visitors are in very good form at the moment having won all of their previous five league matches played and the confidence of the players is at an all time high. Spurs face a real test on Saturday evening and the result of this match could determine their chances of catching league leaders Chelsea.

A defeat for the visitors could see Liverpool and Arsenal move above them in the league table and that surely will be a huge incentive for the players to get the job done against Manchester City in this game.

Manchester City Team News :

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has been cleared to play after his £27m move from Palmeiras went through in time. The 19-year-old signed for the club in the summer but remained at Palmeiras for the remainder of the Brazilian league season.

Fernando could return after injury but fellow midfielder Fernandinho remains suspended.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News :

Tottenham duo Kevin Wimmer and Ben Davies will be on hand to deputise for ankle injury victim Jan Vertonghen. Vertonghen’s ankle problem is not as serious as first feared, with the Belgium central defender likely to be missing for six weeks.

Spurs have no new injury issues ahead of the Premier League trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday’s evening game from the Etihad Stadium will become the 133rd meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Manchester City have won 50 times overall with 34 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Tottenham Hotspur have managed to secure 52 victories overall with 18 of those having came away from home but with the way Tottenham are playing at the moment, there is a strong chance those away stats will change after this game.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Tottenham Hotspur with a slight advantage, having won 3 times, compared to Manchester City having won twice.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

383 Goals have been scored in the previous 132 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.90.

186 of those Goals have came in the 66 previous matches played at the Etihad Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.82.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to strongly suggest that this game should see at least 2 or 3 Goals Scored in this game on Saturday evening in Manchester.

Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Manchester City are in desperate trouble at the moment as their latest defeat has surely given them far too much to do in order to catch Chelsea at the top of the league table even with a victory in this game.

There was a lot wrong with the setup during that 3-0 defeat away against Everton and it does seem as though the premiership league is bit tough for City keeper Bravo who continues to conceded goals week in week out.

Tottenham Hotspur seem to be going from strength to strength and their fine 2-0 win at home against arch rivals Chelsea has certainly made a lot of teams sit up and take notice.

Harry Kane continues to deliver the goals up front and with the magician who is Deli Ali and the vision of Eriksen, Spurs are looking a very strong and dangerous side to anyone that they come up against.

However, before we get too carried away with the Tottenham hype, let us not forget that it was around this time last season that the wheels came off the Spurs title challenge and with Vertonghen unable to play in this game due to injury, their is now a weakness in their back four that Sergio Aguero will be eager to exploit.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with home advantage I would expect Manchester City to score between at least one or two during this game and with the way Spurs are playing at the moment you would fancy them to score the same.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Manchester City Striker Sergio Aguero to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as he does of a habit of scoring goals against Tottenham in recent season’s and he will be relishing the opportunity to do so again in this match.
