Players to watch out for

Some players from both clubs are in searing forms. Players to watch out for are:

Erling Haaland

The Norwegian striker is having his best PL debut with Man City. He scored 10 goals in 6 matches, 4 more than Aleksandar Mitrovic. He has been scoring a goal in every 54 min since playing for City. With the like of De Bruyne in the midfield, he is likely to score against Spurs.

Harry Kane

He is the best goalscorer PL has ever since Alan Shearer. The English Goalscorer has scored 188 goals in Premier League and 3rd the highest goal scorer behind Shearer and Ronney. He has won three PL golden boots. Only Mohammad Salah, Drogba, and Thierry Henry have the same no of golden boots as him. This season, Harry has scored 5 goals in 6 matches.

Kevin De Bruyne

The Belgian playmaker will always be a threat on the pitch, regardless of the form he might go through. He had a slow start to the season like other players.

But, the midfielder has found his mojo back and is once again the City train’s engine.

He has created 4 assists in 6 PL matches, most in this season. The Belgian midfielder has also created most through ball 7. De Bruyne is the 8th highest assist creator in PL history with 90 assists and one of the best in the business.

Richarlison

The Brazilian has been the go-to man for Antonio Conte this season. He has scored 2 goals and 2 assists this season for Spurs.

Richarlison’s explosive pace and precise finishing make him deadly on the break. The Spurs player fits perfectly into Conte’s 3-4-3. Tottenham is not expected to generate many chances tomorrow, but if it comes to set-pieces or counters, their best will lie with Richarlison.

 Predicted Starting XI

Spurs XI (3-4-3): Lloris, Dier, Davies, Romero, Bentancur, Emerson, Hojbjerg, Perisic, Kane, Son, Richarlison.

City XI (4-3-3): Ederson, Dias, Cancelo, Akanji, Gomez, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Bernardo, Foden, Haaland.

Match Prediction

This upcoming we shall see forward vs forwarding of Haaland vs. Kane. Conte and Pep will likely tell their strikers to score first and sit back to defend. We have to see who will score first.

We know premier league games are unpredictable. Still, Conte and Pep will know they cannot fully depend upon their strikers.

Conte wants revenge for last season’s losses. Spurs might try to break the back line of City.

Still, the game shall be in favor of City, as they are quite a form.

Prediction: Man City 3-1 Spur
