The central match of the 18th round in the EPL will be held at Etihad stadium where Manchester City will host Tottenham Hotspurs. In this couple bookmakers are on the Mancunians side, which are leading in the tournament table, but the Londoners should not be disregarded either, mentally the Spurs are ready to give battle to the Eagles, moreover, Pochettino’s team is in a great shape and managed to get into the EPL’s top-four.
Last mid-week Manchester City managed to defeat Swansea away with a score of 4:0. The team’s class is noticeably different, therefore the victory was well-deserved. But prior to the victory over the Swans, Man City had difficulties with achieving the result, Manchester United were defeated with difficulties, as well as West Ham and Southampton previously. Manchester City are on the first position in the EPL table, 49 points in the asset.
After 17 played rounds Tottenham Hotspurs are situated on the fourth position in the tournament table, 31 points in the asset, the same as Liverpool and Burnley, one point less, than Arsenal and Chelsea are four points ahead. Considering the density, it’s better to lose as less points as possible even in away matches with the leaders. Last season Tottenham managed not to lose at Etihad.
Manchester City crushed Swansea, but Tottenham are a team of a completely different level, therefore it would be difficult with the Londoners. Tottenham won three last games, Pochettino’s team is in a great sporting shape and is going to Manchester after some points. One may try betting on the guests in this couple.
Prediction for the match: Tottenham to win with +1.5 Asian handicap
