Tottenham vs Man City Preview

With the support of both parts of the Northern side of London, albeit only for two to three hours, Tottenham Hotspur is set to host Manchester City in a tantalizing Premier League clash. The midweek fixture is slated to take place on Tuesday evening, 14th May at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The entire North London will be cheering for the White shirts in this battle as a win for the home team can lend their city rivals Arsenal a head start in the race to lift the Premier League 2023-24 title. Scroll down below to know the prediction and betting tips for Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City match.

Ange Postecoglou’s side received a much-needed victory against Burnley, which has been relegated to the Championship following a 1-2 defeat last weekend. After four straight defeats in the league, a tepid Tottenham fought their way back to deny Burnley three points to escape relegation. Spurs have set a new club record, having now rescued 25 points after trailing on the scoresheet in the Premier League this season. And now, they will welcome high-flying Manchester City, who enter this Tuesday’s contest off the back of a resounding 4-0 victory against Fulham.

Spurs have struggled this season in the opening minutes, often conceding goals early on. But against Pep Guardiola’s men, conceding early goals means an uphill journey to recover. There are also mixed feelings in the Spurs camp regarding the prospect of snatching points from the Cityzens on Tuesday, given their defensive track record and the prolific attacking firepower possessed by the defending champions.

Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United handed the Gunners the top spot and re-established their one-point lead in the league table. The next match week will kick off with the Spurs vs City game, meaning City will have the opportunity to go two points clear at the top, with one match remaining in the cycle. However, if Spurs somehow pull off a miraculous victory against the Manchester outfit, they will lend a helping hand to their bitter rivals Arsenal, who will remain on top going into the final week. Manchester City currently holds the second spot in the league tally with 85 points, playing a game less than the Gunners, while Spurs sit in the fifth spot with 63 points. The North London club needs just one point now to secure the Europa League spot for the next season.

Richarlison is doubtful to feature on Tuesday as he has reportedly picked up a calf problem, resulting in his exclusion from the Brazil squad for the 2024 Copa America. It means the forward will be out for the final two games of the season, joining Timo Werner (hamstring injury), Manor Solomon (knee), Ben Davies (calf), and Ryan Sessegnon (thigh) on the injury list. Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski should once again lead from the front to put a dent in City’s joyful journey.

Spurs predicted playing XI: Vicario; Romero, Porro, Emerson, Van de Ven; Bentancur, Bissouma, Bentancur, Maddison, Kulusevski, Johnson, Son

Manchester City

Nathan Ake is the only player who might be unavailable for Guardiola to field on Tuesday as the versatile defender was seen leaving the pitch with visible discomfort last week. However, the Spanish coach can negate the situation by just shifting either Kyle Walker or Akanji to the left side and deploying Jack Grealish or Jeremy Doku to exploit Spurs’ weakness on the left. Grealish should make a comeback at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after missing out on his side’s impressive success last Saturday.

Man City Predicted Playing XI: Ederson; Stones, Dias, Walker, Gvardiol, Rodri, Silva, De Bruyne; Grealish, Foden, Haaland

Tottenham vs Man City Prediction

One thing can surely be predicted in a match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – both teams scoring goals and heavy traffic in front of the home side’s penalty box. Spurs have leaked goals regularly in the Premier League this season, and it will be no exception against Guardiola’s men, given the goalscoring form the Cityzens are in at the moment. But, as unpredictable as Spurs might be, their record at home seems to be a worrying sign for the champions. The Lilywhites are still on an unbeaten run in the English top flight this season and will look to maintain that. However, with title hopes hanging in the balance, City should emerge victorious by ending Spurs’ commendable home run on Tuesday evening.

Predicted Score: Spurs 2-3 Manchester City
