Goals in North London?

Tottenham welcome Manchester City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening during the Premier Leagues gameweek 9. Both teams have players who featured heavily during the international break raising questions regarding their fatigue levels, will this be a tired affair or will both teams conjure up the electrifying performances we are so accustomed to?


The Lilywhites are currently on a 3 game winning streak having seen off Brighton and West Brom in the league as well as Ludogorets in the Europa League. If Tottenham win here, they could potentially end the week at 1st which would be a real show of force.

Lethal strike force

Mourinho and co. have so far managed to score 19 goals in 8 games making them the second highest scoring team in the Prem. Furthermore, of those 8 played games, Tottenham have managed to amass 5 wins, 2 draws and a loss leaving them second, only 1 point behind Leicester City.

Given the difficulties Manchester City have faced this season including their leaky defence, this could possibly be the best time to face them. Tottenham would be remiss in not making the most of that chance.

Manchester City

The Citizens have endured quite a shaky start to the season after winning 3, drawing 3 and losing 1 of their first 7 games. The stats are a far cry from being a catastrophe but are on the other hand not good either, especially for a team of City's stature.

Shaky defence

City's goal-difference of 10-9 is, on the other hand, horrible and is something Pep and co. should be ashamed over. Conceding 9 goals in only 7 games is unacceptable despite the fact that Guardiola's men have already gone head to head with the likes of Leicester, Arsenal, Liverpool and Wolverhampton.

On the bright side, new boy Ruben Dias is looking better and better after every game and could end up forging an extremely fruitful partnership with Laporte. The possibility of City stopping the leak is very high given that they are improving and gelling together after every game. The return of Gabriel Jesus also means that City's attack will be more potent going forward.

Betting tip

Given that Tottenham have been lethal going forward and that City have had issues when defending but are still dangerous going forward, i will be backing Over 2.5 goals at 1.60 with Betway.
