Manchester City vs Tottenham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20th April 2019
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
After all that talks of a quadruple, Mauricio Pochettino managed to put City and their boys back in the seats with a squad that has not seen a signing in the last two transfer windows. All the while Pep has been adding on names by splashing gold (oil) worth to their weight. Talk about being savage.
Manchester has no Champions League to dream about now. All that remains is the FA Cup Final, and their very own Premier League. Five more wins, and no matter what Liverpool does, City will defend their crown.
But it’s easier said than done. This stretch of five games include a game against Manchester United, and this tie against the Spurs.
Will Poch be able to put Guardiola out of two competitions in the span of four days?

Manchester City vs Tottenham Prediction
After all his spending, Guardiola might as well retire from coaching if he allows a trophy-less manager to take him out of the Champions League, and Premier League in just under a week. City has no major trophy left this season to go after, and for sure their ultimate prize is now the EPL crown. One thing’s that going for them is the fact that, their destiny still lies in their results. They do not have to depend on any other team to see through the objective.
Moreover, Spurs have bigger fish to fry now, and they would prefer to finish in the top-four without incident, and would concentrate more on their tie against Ajax.
City has dominated Spurs for quite some time. They recorded five wins from the last six h2h meetings, and registered eight of the last nine wins at this venue. The team also scored two or more goals in five of the last seven overall h2h games, and in eight of the last nine at this venue.
Importantly, City won their last 13 home ties in a row, and 22 of their last 23 as well. On the other hand, Tottenham lost seven of their last eight away ties. Add to this Manchester’s vengeance, and this becomes a no-brainer. Expect a terrifying and dominating win for the hosts.
