Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City Match Predictions & Trends

Champions travel south to face unsettled Spurs

Will he feature? Will he move? Is he fit? Is he on strike? So many questions surround the future of Harry Kane at the moment. It is not ideal for incoming Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo who wants to make a mark at his new club and finds himself in the middle of a lot of speculation. The England Captain is sought after property and having declared his wish to leave and Pep Guardiola admitting being interested in Kane, the situation is tense.

On the pitch, City may give new £100m signing Jack Grealish his first start since his arrival from Aston Villa as they wait on fitness updates for both Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne. New Tottenham center-back Christian Romero will be keen to play but may not be ready for the visit of the champions. That could be a blessing in disguise for the young Argentine as City aim to get their title defense up and running at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium coming off the back of the Charity Shield loss to Leicester City at Wembley last week.

A majority of Tottenham’s wins last season were with a margin of 2 goals or more (13 wins), while 5 of their wins had a 1-goal margin. In comparison, Manchester City’s wins were obtained with a margin of 2 goals or more (18 wins), while 9 of their wins had a 1-goal margin. City conceded as many 1-goal margin losses as defeats with a margin of 2 goals or more (3 defeats for each). Spurs’ defeats had a 1-goal margin (7 defeats), while 5 of their losses had a margin of 2 goals or more.
