Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs renew their developing rivalry this weekend in another cracking fixture in week 2 of the Premier League, live on Citi 97.3 FM from 4:30pm.
City thrashed West Ham United 5-0 in their opening game, where they looked particularly menacing in the second half. But at the Etihad on Saturday, Spurs will present a whole new proposition.
Mauricio Pochetino’s men had to come from a goal down to beat newly promoted Aston Villa, asserting their ability to dig deep for a result when a required.
Christian Eriksen’s future is still up in the air but he came off the bench to great effect against Villa and Spurs will be counting on him to do the damage against City.
Their squad may be a little short in terms of depth over the course of the season, but at their strongest Spurs look very well balanced and capable of at least troubling City, as we saw in the Champions League last term.
Their two league meetings last season saw Pep Guardiola’s side come out on top with a pair of 1-0 victories and Spurs have since completed an impressive addition in midfield in Tanguy Ndombele, so you would expect it to be close.
Man City are overwhelming favorites to win on Betway and you can back the Citizens at 1.37 odds.
While Man City only won narrowly in the Premier League last season, the Champions League game at the Etihad showed these two sides also have the potential to be involved in a high scoring game.
Over 2.5 odds stand at 2.55 on Betway.
My personal pick for this one is 1-1 draw, merely because both teams know each other too well and may be too cautious not to make mistakes, canceling each other out and playing to a drab draw.
The odds for a draw on Betway stand at 5.24, risky but worth it for a single bet.
