Tottenham vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: 14th April 2018, Saturday.
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London).
Tottenham continued their emphatic run in the Premier League with a 2-1 away win at Stoke City last week. They took their winless streak to six games and stay unbeaten since the start of 2018.
Spurs welcome Manchester City on Saturday, the last team to have beaten them in a Premier League game back in December. It has been fourteen league games since now and then and 11 wins and 3 draws happened in the period which pulled Spurs back in the Champions League qualification zone.
They start the weekend’s game from fourth in the standing, 10 points clear off the fifth placed Chelsea. The gap between the two London rivals suggest that Spurs are in a strong position to make it into the Champions League next season.
City are coming on a disastrous week with a heavy 5-1 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter final and 3-2 home defeat to Manchester United. Against United, they squandered a 2 goal lead, unarguably the most painful defeat this season.
Still, no damage done to Manchester City’s title bid. They must clinch it in style and well before the final matchday of the season. They can afford to lose on Saturday as well with the final five games of the season pitted against teams sitting around the relegation zone. The Citizens need just 2 wins from the remaining games to be crowned as 2018 English Premier League champions

ottenham vs Manchester City: Prediction
There is no doubt that Tottenham versus Manchester City is the match you cannot afford to miss if you are a football fan. Spurs are in red hot form and Manchester City are a wounded lion. And this has set the stage for a fiery, but spirited battle.
My advice to punters is to look at the goal markets rather than picking the 1×2 bet based on form and h2h stats. Both teams are currently finding goals from all departments of play. So, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are bankers.
