Tottenham does not inspire confidence
English League Cup final.
It features 2 of the conspiratorial teams, who made thin calculations for millions of revenues from the existing Super League.
Now, after its failure, they will have to pay hundreds of thousands of euros in fines, among other things.
If for Manchester City, these are small things. Tottenham president Daniel Levy will have a very hard time with this cost.
He has to fight for the Champions League, which is a few points away.
But in the conditions of the already missing Jose Mourinho.
And his young deputy is not at all clear with what level of respect he has from the players.
Victory over troubled Southampton cannot answer that question.
The League Cup has no prestige. And most importantly, no financial value.
Under the circumstances, and without Harry Kane, Tottenham are not the team I would trust at all.
Manchester City wants this cup
Of course, many will be the ones looking for a surprise in this match. And I remember their main arguments.
I hasten to point out that the one where Manchester City had a visit to PSG in three days is of no value.
First of all, the Citizens are the team that allows regular rotations of 5 or more players.
And without affecting their game at all.
In addition, Pep Guardiola is the last person in the world to miss his team to win the 4th consecutive and 8th Cup in total.
And even if she's in the League.
The missed FA Cup is just another reason not to do it again. And it would be difficult to compare Chelsea with Tottenham at this very moment.
Prediction for Tottenham - Manchester City
Manchester City are deservedly the clear favorite in this match. But unfortunately it is ridiculous to bet on their victory.
The victory, however, opens the market for goals. And there I am surprised to see how well he is rated for goal scorer Ilkay Gundogan.
He is undoubtedly one of the most useful players on the team.
And since I'm almost certain that he will take part in the match, I will bet on his goal.
Apart from scoring often, there is another important point. The referee for this match is one of the most frequent penalty takers.
Ilkay Gundogan is their full-time contractor. That is, the chance to score increases in another way.
