Tottenham vs. Manchester City Prediction
Determining a winner from this forthcoming clash is an extremely uncertain affair whereas Tottenham’s form does work in their favor, it’s their apprehensive defense which will let them down, for the defending style of parking bus as well known and see City just about record a one-goal win for the day.
I think that Man City have hit their stride in recent weeks and look much better in their defense. With Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero back, that makes a big difference and the Spurs will struggle to keep on the bay.
