3.5 months since the 26th
of August the football fans are asking themselves the most actual
question of the current English season. That was the day when the 15
matches winning streak of the team of Josep Guardiola had begun with
the victory over Bournemouth. Practically all other favorites of EPL
had tried to stop the Citizens but they all failed: Liverpool (5:0),
Chelsea (1:0), Arsenal (3:1) and MU (2:1).
City (the head coach Josep Guardiola)
to experts and analysts of English football the current core of EPL
is based by 6 traditional challengers claiming for Champions League’s
berths. Among them 4 top rivals, over which City had managed to win
with the total score11:2. Only
is the previous season vice-champion of England Tottenham. Let us
remind that the previous meeting of the current rivals at Etihad
Stadium had ended with a draw (2:2).
(the head coach Mauricio Pochettino)
recent slump of the Spurs had already gone. During two previous
rounds Tottenham had won over Stoke City (5:1) and Brighton (2:0).
And after the victory over the Seagulls the team of Mauricio
Pochettino returned to TOP 4.
is obvious that this fact brings some hope that the forthcoming
battle of two strong rivals will be interesting. But, to tell the
truth, even home defeat won’t probably change anything in the
leading position of the team.
in favor of the team of Josep Guardiola speaks the factor of home
field. And here, according to bookmakers, the citizens of Big
Manchester are the bright favorites of the central meeting of the
City – 1.53, draw – 4.75, Tottenham – 6.00;
City win – odds 1.61 5Dimes
