Manchester City News and Form

The Citizens made no mistake in their opening game of the new season. They didn’t even play that well in the first half. But a 5-0 win at West Ham was what they walked away with. Raheem Sterling was the star of the show with a hattrick. Sterling is at 4/1 in the first goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 14th, 2019 at 6:12 p.m.). Once they found their stride the Citizens were just cutting through West Ham’s defence like a hot knife through butter.

They do face a stern test in their opening home game of the season. But City beat Spurs twice in the league during the last campaign and they aren’t a side who particularly fear anyone. Man City recorded a W18 L1 record from their 19 home games last season in the top flight. Pep Guardiola’s men averaged 3 goals per game at home, conceding just 12 home goals the entire campaign. They strung together a 9 match winning streak at the Etihad to finish the season with. Nine of Man City’s 14 home successes in the EPL were by a margin of at least two goals.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs had to recover from a setback at home against Aston Villa on the opening weekend of the season. The Lilywhites found themselves a goal down at the half time break. But then Mauricio Pochettino’s men rallied late on with summer signing Tanguy Ndombele scoring their equaliser in the 73rd minute. It looked as if they were going to have to settle for a draw before a late Harry Kane show. The England striker scored twice in the final five minutes gets Spurs a 3-1 victory.

Away from home last season, Tottenham produced a W11 D0 L8 record. Their form did collapse at the back end of the last term, their long campaign in the Champions League catching up with them. Spurs lost each of their last five road fixtures last season, failing to score in three of those. One of the losses was a 1-0 reverse out at Manchester City. Spurs still managed to score an average of 1.75 goals per away game during the last campaign. With Harry Kane up and running and new signing Ndombele looking like a great addition, they have reason to be confident.

Manchester City to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4
Under 2.5 goals at 13/8
