Tottenham: Need To Do Better

Fifth place in the EPL isn’t bad, but Tottenham couldn’t defeat any of the top four teams. It lost 2-0 to Manchester United and Arsenal, 2-1 to Newcastle, and 4-2 to Manchester City. You can’t expect to win the title without beating the powerhouses.

Tottenham regained some confidence recently by defeating Fulham 1-0 in the EPL and Preston 3-0 in the FA Cup. Harry Kane saved the day against the Cottagers, while Son Heung-min was named Man of the Match against Preston after scoring a brace.

Precisely, the duo of Kane and Heung-min is the main reason to consider including the Spurs in your soccer picks. Regarding the EPL, Kane is the team’s top scorer with 16 goals. Only Erling Haaland from Manchester City has scored more with 25. As for Heung-min, he has scored only four goals, but he’s basically a bullet running the left wing. There are also Dejan Kulusevski and Ivan Perisic, who lead the team in assists with five each.

The Spurs are 6-0-4 when playing at home, meaning they go all-in every single game, for better or worse.

Manchester City: On the Hunt

Manchester City isn’t used to being in second place, but Arsenal is having a fantastic season, enough to have a five-point lead over the Citizens at the top of the standings. That’s why the Citizens must do whatever it takes to win on Sunday.

Curiously enough, they just defeated the Gunners in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup. The match finished 1-0 with Nathan Ake as the scorer. Regarding the EPL, their last match was against Wolverhampton, and they had no trouble fulfilling their role as betting online favorites, winning 3-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Haaland. Who else?

Believe it or not, Haaland alone has scored more goals than Chelsea in total. No wonder the Citizens are the top-scoring team in the league with 53 goals. They also own the third-best defense, allowing 20 goals in 20 games.

The Citizens have been considerably better when playing at home, where they own a 9-1-1 record, but that doesn’t mean that their road record is bad; they’re 5-2-2.

The first season meeting between these two was crazy. Tottenham won the first half 2-0 thanks to Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal, who scored in a two-minute span. But the Spurs ran out of luck in the second half and were already losing 3-2 before the 65-minute mark. Manchester City ended up winning 4-2, with Riyad Mahrez as Man of the Match after scoring a brace.

These two really don’t like each other, which translates into a very even series. The Citizens own a 5-1-4 record in their last 10 meetings, scoring 16 goals, while the Spurs scored 13.
