Manchester City vs Tottenham Premier League – Betting tips and match preview

Premier LeagueManchester City will be playing Tottenham tonight in the Premier League at 20:00 GMT in their second last fixture of the season. The stakes are high for both clubs as they are playing for fourth place in the league and a place in next years Champions League. We have looked at the teams before the big Premier League clash.

A win will guarantee Champions League

A win for Tottenham tonight at The City of Manchester Stadium would guarantee them a place in Champions League next year, which would be their first appearance ever and a great accomplishment for the club. Having been placed at fourth place most of the season, it would be a big disappointment should they miss this goal now. Tottenham have won the previous three clashes between the two clubs and you have to go back to the 07/08 season for the last Manchester City victory. This must give them confidence before tonight’s match, which will be needed in this tough away game. In their last five fixtures they have won three and lost two, but it is somewhat worrying that all victories come at home. Actually Tottenham have only won six away matches out of seventeen this season, which must be a bit worrying for manager Redknapp. For tonight’s match Tottenham could be without defender Ledley King depending on his fitness, while goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is somewhat doubtful.

On other hand Manchester City can leave matters in their own hands tonight by winning. This would leave them ahead in the table and could give them the Champions League ticket, if they win their last match too. Should they not make it tonight, it would be a huge disappointment for the club after spending large sums of money to reach top four this summer. This said they did take the first step by beaten Aston Villa 3-1 this Saturday and are looking to take the next step today. Before the match tonight they have only lost two games at home all season, which is quite a good record for Mancini’s squad. Both midfielder Stephen Ireland and defender Joleon Lescott will be out due to injury tonight, but Gareth Barry could return to strengthen the centre midfield for Manchester City.
