A global Tottenham Hotspur podcast and viewpoint, by the fans for the fans.
by Elliott Line
In our history we’ve played Manchester City 128 times, with both teams notching up 49 victories. At home we’ve won 32 out of 63 previous matches. We’ve suffered a few heavy defeats at the hands of City recently, conceding 15 goals in our last three encounters. In each of our two most recent meetings, we had a player sent off: Fazio last October, and Danny Rose last January.
It will not be an easy game by any means, however, now might be the best time to play Man City, as their recent form has been poor in comparison to earlier in the season.
I rate the likelihood of us scoring as 68%, and of scoring more than once as 39%, and of keeping a clean sheet as only 19%. The most likely scoreline is 1-1, followed by a 2-1 defeat, a 1-0 defeat and a 2-0 defeat.
Overall I have 22% for a Spurs win, 25% for a draw and 52% for a Man City win. Currently the best odds for a Spurs win can be found at Marathon Bet who are offering 7/2.
