The Premier League returns to the fold with another round of matches this week as Tottenham Hotspur lock horns with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday. Tottenham Hotspur are currently in fifth place in the Premier League standings and have not been at their best so far this season. The north London outfit slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
Manchester City, on the other hand, are in third place in the league table at the moment and have also flattered to deceive this season. The Cityzens suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United in their previous game and have a point to prove this week.
Manchester City have struggled to meet expectations this season and cannot afford to drop points in this fixture. Erling Haaland has been prolific this season and will need to step up in this match.
Tottenham Hotspur have struggled in recent weeks and are in desperate need of a shot in the arm. Manchester City are the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
Prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Tottenham Hotspur
This match will start from 1:30 am
This match will take place on 20 January 2023
Working without two of his primary centre-backs in Ruben Dias and John Stones for the derby, Guardiola has revealed that both men will be in contention to start this one alongside Kevin De Bruyne, who sparked concern when he missed training on Tuesday for personal reasons.
While Guardiola may decide to name Dias and Stones on the bench – with the former waiting for his first post-World Cup minutes – he is blessed the luxury of a well-rested Aymeric Laporte, and the Spain international could now force his way back in as ‘Pep roulette’ comes to the fore.
Ilkay Gundogan, Jack Grealish and Julian Alvarez should also be in contention for starting roles at the Etihad, where Erling Braut Haaland will aim to avoid going three games without a goal for just the second time in the top five European leagues.
Ederson; Walker, Akanji, Laporte, Cancelo; Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne; Silva, Haaland, Grealish
