Manchester City vs Tottenham betting preview

The biggest game in England this week will see Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City lock horns in the final of the Carabao Cup at Wembley Stadium.

Expectations are at an all-time time, as there’ll be a lot at stake. This is also an opportunity for either side to win their first trophy of the season. For a side like Tottenham who haven’t won any major silverware for almost two decades, this means everything.

Spurs fired Jose Mourinho earlier in the week due to a series of underwhelming results. The North London outfit started the season in fantastic form under the Portuguese but things quickly fell apart.

With Ryan Mason taking temporary charge, it remains to be seen how they’ll fare against the high-flying Manchester City on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s side is also desperate for a trophy following their disappointing exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Chelsea. The Cityzens were on course to win the quadruple but they’ve been wobbling in recent weeks.

Recent defeats to Chelsea and Leeds United have given Manchester City a reality check while rivals Manchester United are also closing in hard in the Premier League title race.

However, Manchester City are still perhaps the best team in Europe at the moment. They’ve lost just three matches since November and are looking stronger than ever.

Guardiola’s side will be missing the services of Kevin De Brunye, who is currently injured. Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero is also a major doubt after picking up a knock last week.

For Tottenham, though, Mason has a fit squad at his disposal, although captain Harry Kane will face a late test to determine his fitness. Mason, 29, became the youngest manager in Premier League history when he led Spurs to a 2-1 win over Southampton last week.

Betika prices Manchester City at 1.50 to emerge victorious, while Tottenham is priced at 6.20 to win, as at the time of writing this article. A draw, though, is priced at 5.00.
