Tottenham - Manchester City prediction
The derby of the round in the English Premier League will be played on Sunday afternoon.
When the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London will meet the teams of Tottenham and Manchester City.
After conceding 3 losses in their first 4 games of 2023 in the league, Tottenham went on a winning streak again .
Antonio Conte's players not only won their last 2 matches before today's meeting.
But they did not allow a single goal in them.
Man City are also progressing after 3 consecutive wins in all competitions. But in each of them they were hosts.
The situation is a little different in the recent visits of the Citizens - 2 consecutive losses :
- 0-2 v Southampton in the League Cup
- 1-2 against Man United in the Premier League
I think we could look for a surprise here in the form of a home win.
Moreover, Tottenham won their previous 4 home games against Manchester City .
Prediction: 1 – Draw No Bet.
Tottenham - statistics and info
Tottenham did the double over the champions last campaign.
And they led 2-0 at the break when they faced Man City away in their first game against them this season.
However, three goals in a 12-minute run turned the tide. And the Sky Blues added a late goal for the final 4-2.
That defeat was preceded by a 0–2 home loss to arch-rivals Arsenal.
But since then, Tottenham has been on the rise .
Harry Kane scored the winning goal to make it 1-0 in the Premier League against Fulham.
Before Son Heung-min went on a rampage against Preston 3-0 away in the FA Cup.
With Kane and Richarlison rested in that game, Son took his tally for the current campaign to 8 goals.
Before on-loan Arnaut Danjuma made his debut, coming on as a substitute.
Assistant coach Christian Stellini said of Son:
"He is a top player and tonight was a good game for him. Without Harry, he was the most important striker for us.
So it was important for Son to find a way to score and let the team win."
Son returning to the form that saw him share the league's Golden Boot last season would be a huge bonus for Conte.
However, in general, Spurs have not been convincing this season, especially in big games .
As they lost at home to Liverpool, Newcastle and Arsenal.
Manchester City - stats and info
Manchester City have had more than their usual share of misses this season.
But he will travel to London in good spirits after a hat- trick of victories .
After upending Spurs, they cruised to a 3-0 home win over Wolves before edging Arsenal 1-0 in the FA Cup.
Goalscorer Nathan Ayke downplayed the importance of success against the Gunners in terms of the title race.
But he was happy to gain more momentum.
"I'm very happy with the goal and the win," said the Dutch defender.
"We stayed strong and won against a very good team.
Obviously when we play them again in a few weeks it will be a completely different game.
But it's always good to win, especially against a team like this, and that can help us."
Certainly, if they want to win a 3rd consecutive English title, Guardiola's players must win matches against difficult opponents , which today certainly is.
