Welcome back to the EPL!
9 games are scheduled to go down today, but of these 9, 5 look sure to provide huge entertainment.
We’ve got West Ham United taking on high-spirited Newcastle United, and London Derbies involving Arsenal and Brentford, as well as, Chelsea and Crystal Palace.
Not to forget Southampton who will be hosting Everton, and our star game of the day, Manchester City taking on Tottenham Hotspur.
Big matches, aren’t they?
I believe we can now proceed to today’s match preview starting off with Pep Guardiola’s men
EPL (MANCHESTER CITY):
Impressive Run Of EPL Games: A fact that seems to always come first when talking about City
They are currently on a run of 14 EPL matches of which they are yet to succumb to a defeat.
Not surprising of a typical Pep Guardiola side.
The only down part to this stat is the single draw they had against Southampton.
Well, the above was expected considering that the Saints have been pretty impressive as well.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of Tottenham Hotspur who have been very poor in their last 2 games.
City coming out victorious today shouldn’t be much of a surprise, isn’t it?
EPL Title Race: Another Fact in favor of Pep Guardiola’s men.
City currently sit at the top of the table with 9 points.
However, you can bet they won’t be taking that lead for granted considering they’ve got an equally impressive Liverpool side behind them.
Not to forget that the Reds still have a game in hand.
The above provides a more reason why the Citizens will be aiming to get the all-important 3 points in today’s game.
Home Advantage: One last fact for Pep’s men.
They’ve amassed a whopping 31 points out of a possible 36 playing at the Etihad.
Yes, you saw that right, and even the Champions of the World, Chelsea, could do nothing about it.
Another huge confidence booster for the Citizens, isn’t it?
Ponder about the above as we shift our attention to Antonio Conte’s men.
EPL (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR):
Impressive Head To Head: A standout fact in favor of Conte’s men at the moment.
The last 5 meetings between both sides have ended in 3 wins, 1 draw, and.1 loss for the visitors.
Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
And although their only loss came at the Etihad Stadium, you can be sure Spurs will have a huge feeling they can get something out of this game based on this fact.
Current Poor Form: Not really a good fact in favor of Spurs, but it could be a morale booster.
Presently on 3 matches losing streak, the only thought Antonio Conte and his men will have is how to turn this around.
Really, as much as this looks like the best time for City to take on Spurs, it’s also the worst time to do so.
You don’t want to be in a fight with a wounded Lion, do you?
A win for the Citizens look sure based on the facts above.
I am however open to a draw at the end of this game.
