Tottenham vs Manchester City. Team Overview

Tottenham is still in the race for a top-four finish in the English Premier League.

However, their poor defense is hindering them from achieving their goal. Ange Postecoglou’s team consistently ranks in the bottom half of the table in terms of goals conceded and xGA. In their recent match against Burnley (2-1), Spurs were lucky not to concede more than one goal due to the poor organization of their high defensive line, which fails at creating offside traps. Additionally, the team operates narrowly in a 4-4-2 formation during the defensive phase, leaving opponents space on the flanks.

Nevertheless, Tottenham has one of the best home records of the current season, scoring an average of 2 goals per match at home. Postecoglou’s attacking strategies have been effective, with flank crosses to the near post resulting in several goals. In recent matches, Cristian Romero and Micky van de Ven have been instrumental in positional attacks, which caught Burnley and Arsenal off guard.

Manchester City are on the verge of clinching their fourth consecutive English Premier League title, needing just two more wins to secure it.

Guardiola’s team have won seven straight matches at the end of the season with a 28-5 aggregate scoreline, making it the best result in the league since early April.

Despite only winning one game against teams in the top four this season, Manchester City have played almost flawlessly against the rest of the Premier League. They have only lost 9 points against teams ranked from 5th to 20th, which is a remarkable achievement.

In their last game against Fulham, Manchester City used a 3-2-4-1 formation, with Bernardo Silva and Joško Gvardiol providing width on the flanks, and Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden filling the half-spaces. This lineup proved to be effective, as Gvardiol, who had made some mistakes earlier in the season, played brilliantly on the left wing. Foden also played well, shifting from the left flank to the center and scoring one of the goals.

Tottenham vs Manchester City. Head-to-Head Statistics

It’s worth noting that Tottenham has won five consecutive games against Manchester City at home since 2019. However, in this year’s FA Cup match, Spurs lost at home with a score of 0-1. 

Despite Manchester City’s constant superiority in the quality of play and the number of goalscoring chances, Tottenham managed to win against them year after year. In the recent cup match, City had an 18-1 advantage in shots and a 5-1 advantage in shots on target, but they only managed to secure a minimal win with a goal in the 88th minute.

It’s interesting to consider whether Guardiola’s team will face difficulties in scoring in their next match against Tottenham.

Player Focus

Heung-min Son plays a vital role in Tottenham’s performance in big matches. His abilities are particularly effective in counterattacking against teams like Manchester City, who play with a high defensive line. Son is skilled at making timely runs and taking his chances, making him a valuable asset to the team. It’s worth noting that in three of the last four matches between Cityzens and Spurs, Son has scored. 

In the first leg of the Premier League against Tottenham, Erling Haaland had the opportunity to score two goals, but unfortunately, he failed to convert them. However, Haaland is expected to be one of the biggest threats to Tottenham’s vulnerable defense in the upcoming match on Tuesday.

Tactical Analysis

The crucial factor in the upcoming game is which team can more effectively use passes behind the defenders and convert them into goals. If Tottenham plays with maximum intensity and can overcome the opponents’ pressing with high-quality plays, as they did earlier this season at Etihad Stadium, they will have a great chance to achieve a positive result.

Tottenham vs Manchester City Prediction

Given Manchester City’s struggles with their defense in big matches, we can anticipate Tottenham scoring at least one goal. Guardiola’s team has not been perfect in pressing this season, which the opponent may exploit. Furthermore, Tottenham Hotspur will be highly motivated to win the match on their home ground, and there are still chances of finishing in the Champions League zone. 

Meanwhile, Manchester City will undoubtedly score at least one goal in this match. Tottenham is highly susceptible in the defensive phase against positional attacks and set-pieces by opponents. Therefore, we can predict that both teams will score in this match.
