Tottenham Hotspurs vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Two old rivals Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola renew their hostilities this Saturday with the return of Premier League action. Manchester City travels to North London with match kickoffs at 8:30 pm.

For the first time since January 2017, the Spurs head into the clash while sitting above their opponents in the table. A win this Saturday will see the side hold on to the top spot in the rankings until Sunday night.

The clash between Guardiola and Mourinho have proven to be tactical master classes in the recent past. Mourinho recently celebrated his first anniversary since taking over Tottenham. On the other hand, Guardiola recently signed a two-year contract extension at Etihad till 2023.

Two of the most high profile managers have a reputation against each other after facing El Clasico’s and Manchester Derbies. Mourinho has ten defeats against a Guardiola-led team, which are most than any other manager in his career.

The dynamics remain little as both sides head into the showdown. Tottenham’s pick of form has been one to talk about, especially with their recent wins despite many matches in their schedule. Tottenham currently runs the longest unbeaten run in the Premier League, managing to pick 17 points from 21 points.

Manchester City currently has the lowest goal tally after seven games since their 2010-11 season campaign.
