There’s a 14-point gap between Manchester City and Tottenham as they prepare for their Premier League clash this weekend. But that’s not the catch.
On NairaBET, a Manchester City win has been priced at 1.39 odds. For a heavyweight clash between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, you’d expect the odds to be a bit higher, right? Well, here are a few reasons why the bookies are backing a City win:
- Manchester City have won their last 15 games, thereby setting an English football record
- They are unbeaten in their last 22 games – still have not tasted defeat this year
- They have scored the first goal in all of their last five games
Sounds dominant, right?
After what seemed to be a faltering start to their campaign, Man. City have transformed into somewhat of an unstoppable force. And this was made all the more evident with their 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool. They just can’t stop winning. The same, however, cannot be said about Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.

After managing an unbeaten start to the year, Spurs ended the month of January with two losses – against Liverpool and Brighton. They would open their February account with a London derby loss which was followed by their FA Cup loss to Everton.
Mourinho’s side has now lost four of their last five games, including three of the last four in the Premier League.

The history, however, between these two sides, is a stark contrast to the current reality that both sides are enjoying. In the last three meetings between both sides, Tottenham have dominated. With two wins and a draw, Spurs have owned this game in recent times.
And they will be looking to continue this form when they face the table-toppers on Saturday.
Both managers will be very aware of the history between them as managers. This will be the 25th meeting between the Spanish gaffer and the Portuguese gaffer. While Pep has won 11 times, Jose has seven wins to his name.

Manchester City are currently leading the league table by five points. A loss to the log leaders will set Spurs back by a whopping 17 points. The stats are in no way in Jose Mourinho’s favor for this game. But the Portuguese was built for games like this. Can he spring a surprise and win, against all odds, in this clash?
