Tottenham vs Manchester City.
Manchester City bad run continued on Tuesday night after a third straight defeat as they try to wrap up the Premier League title for a second time against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
However, everything seems to be going ugly and wrong at the moment for the champions-elect of England, and there poor run of form is set to continue this weekend.
Manchester City still have not recorded a victory following their thumping in the hands of Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League and the humiliating defeat suffered in the hands of their neighbours last weekend.
Tottenham will be fresh for this match since they had no European engagement, unlike their opponent who played Liverpool in the Champions league on Tuesday.
Tottenham lost the reverse fixture last year by a score line of 4-1. But, nobody expects them to lose again this time due to the fact that they will be raring to take their pound of flesh on their visitors.
Thus, Tottenham could compound their misery again this coming weekend and pile more pressure on the league leaders.
Hypothetically, Manchester City lead at the top of the table could be reduced to 10 points, with five matches still to play. Fellow neighbours, Manchester United, are expected to record to sounding victory over relegation candidate – Westbrom.
So far, it is not looking good for Man City and it is not surprising that the bookies have made Spurs favourite for this match.
History always repeat itself when it comes to football and this is the singular reason why I will be backing Tottenham to win against Man City.
Let us take a look at what happened during the first meeting.
Manchester United vs Manchester City (1-2)
Manchester City vs Tottenham (4-1).
Manchester City vs Manchester United (2-3)
Tottenham vs Manchester City (3-1).
The analogy above is very simple: the key factor behind my prediction rests solely on what happened at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening. As long as Manchester city lost that match again their neighbours, I expect them to lose again to Tottenham this weekend.
Verdict = Home Win and 2.5
Correct score = 3-1.
2. Manchester United vs Westbrom
Manchester United will cement its grip on second spot this weekend when it takes on Soon to be confirmed relegated side – Westbrom. By winning this match, Man United would have reduced Man City’s lead at the top to 10 points, could a miracle happen?
The away side will simply be trying to limit the scoreline of this game because they are most certain to lose heavily this weekend. While the morale is high in the camp of the host team, following their second half winning display at the Etihad stadium last week, the visitors know that they are doomed.
Verdict: Home win and under 4.4
Projected score = (3-0).
3. Burnley vs Leicester.
Burnley has picked form just when it mattered most. Now, check this amazing stat: in the last five matches, the club has won 4 and drawn one. It is no coincidence that they are almost certain to play in the Europa League next season.
Burnley is ranked 7th in the league with 49 points from 32 matches and a goal difference of +3. On Saturday, Burnley hosts Leicester who is 6 points behind and in 8th position. The stats for Leicester show that the club has won 2, drawn 2, and lost one of the last five matches.
Verdict: Nothing much separates these two teams and the likely outcome here will be a draw. I fancy this game to be a draw and under 4.5 for a safe bet.
If you love risk, then play this match as “Draw and under 2.5”
Projected score = (1-1)
4. Huddersfield vs Watford
This match is between 16th and 12th placed teams in the premier league. The host is currently flirting with relegation having failed to win a single game in their last five matches.
If the host must survive this season in the league, they have no option than to win their remaining home matches. And there is no better to play against Watford who have also had its issues. Watford has lost three of the last five matches.
Verdict: Huddersfield needs the 3 points here and I am backing them to get the job done.
Tip = Home win and over 1.5
