In the upcoming clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, we can anticipate some high-scoring action based on recent statistics.
Tottenham has been quite prolific, with both teams scoring in 11 out of their last 13 matches. On the other hand, Manchester City has been involved in games with over 3.5 goals in six of their last eight outings. Additionally, three out of the last four meetings between these teams have witnessed both teams finding the back of the net, with a minimum of four goals being scored in those matches.
Tottenham is eager to put an end to their 16-year trophy drought this season, but standing in their way are the reigning FA Cup champions, Manchester City, who are currently on a six-match winning streak. Interestingly, Tottenham has had the upper hand in recent encounters, winning five of the last nine meetings against City.
Tottenham comes into this game with a streak of four consecutive home wins and managed to hold Pep Guardiola’s side to a thrilling 3-3 draw earlier in the season. However, it’s crucial to acknowledge the strength of the treble-winning Manchester City team, so betting on both teams to score might be a safer option.
The history of clashes between these two sides promises an entertaining match, especially with managers Ange Postecoglou and Pep Guardiola at the helm. Their previous Premier League encounter resulted in a six-goal thriller, and we should expect another high-scoring contest. With the potential return of City’s star duo, Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland, who are set to feature together for the first time in months, placing a bet on over 2.5 goals seems like a sensible choice for this fixture in north London on Friday night.
Betting tip = BTTS and over 2.5 goals 10/11
