Tottenham vs Manchester City

BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
Last season champions start their title defence for the 2021/22 season with an away game against Spurs!
Last year was a season of ups and downs for Spurs. They started well but ended up sacking their manager, losing a final and finishing 7th in the league.
Spurs always have aims of getting into the top four and will need to keep Harry Kane this season to do so. They have a new manager in Nuno Espirito Santo which has been given a mixed reception by fans.
It’s tough to predict how Spurs will approach this game. Nuno will know City could win this game 3/4-0 and so may look to take a defensive approach and rely on his side getting the ball to Harry Kane.
City were back on top last season, finishing 12 points clear of Man United with Pep winning his third Premier League trophy. They played some fantastic football and looked back to their very best.
Now they have solved their defensive issue, City could easily win the league again this season. City are the bookmakers favourite as it stands and are still looking to strengthen with Grealish and Kane both linked with moves.
The visitors will look to have possession of the ball for the majority of the game. City have won the last two meetings against Spurs and will be looking to do the same again.
