Manchester City 3/5 to beat Tottenham and over 1.5 goals in Saturday’s Premier League clash
Competition: Premier League
Market: Manchester City win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to build off of their eye-catching display in their Premier League opener last weekend, Manchester City will host Tottenham on Saturday evening.
Starting with the hosts, already claiming their first piece of silverware in the shape of the Community Sheild earlier in the month, Manchester City are a rightful favorite to defend their title this season. Securing a 5-0 win over West Ham in their Premier League opener, the Sky Blues have won their last 15 consecutive matches against top-flight opposition and have conceded just a single goal in their last six Premier League matches following on from last season. More impressive, City have won six of their last seven matches against Tottenham, including winning each of the last four matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, although Tottenham may have managed to clinch a hard-fought 3-1 win over Aston Villa in their Premier League opener last weekend, Spurs did struggle for large spells. Trailing 1-0 at half-time, the Lilywhites will also have some concerns over their sides recent defensive issues. Tottenham have now managed to record just a single clean sheet in any of their last 12 matches across all competitions. More worrying for Saturday’s guests, Spurs lost each of their last six Premier League away matches at the end of last season. Given their struggles on the road, we’re backing a routine home victory this weekend.
