On Sunday, February 5, the central match of the 22nd round of the English Premier League will take place. Antonio Conte’s Tottenham will host Josep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The game is expected to be full house – Spurs announced in advance that all the tickets for this game are already sold out.

MANCHESTER CITY

MANCHESTER CITY

Guardiola’s team, like their next opponent, participated in the FA Cup. “The Citizens made it to the 1/8 finals by beating Tottenham’s arch-rival Arsenal. The only goal of the second half was scored by Nathan Ake.

Before the encounter between Tottenham and City, it is worth distracting ourselves from the cup battles and recall the standings in the APL. The teams have different objectives. If Spurs want to finish in the top four, the Citizens have traditionally set themselves a much more serious goal – the championship. Guardiola’s team is the aforementioned Arsenal and is not going to stray from the path, which by definition does not bode well for Tottenham.

Some statistics:

“It’s been a long time since City won on Tottenham’s field. The last time the Citizens beat the Spurs in their den was October 29, 2018.
Man City is coming around after a series of setbacks. In their last three matches (including all tournaments), the Citizens have three wins. The overall score is 7-2.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Last weekend there was no tour in the APO and Spurs played in the FA Cup. In the 1/16 finals of the oldest soccer tournament on the planet Tottenham got not the most difficult opponent – the struggling Preston. There was nothing surprising in the fact that Tottenham happily “ran over” the opponent – 3-0. It should be noted that Son Heung-min, the season-loser, scored a double and Arnaud Danjuma, the Villarreal loanee, got another goal. The latter managed to distinguish himself with a goal in his first match on English soil.

Some statistics:

The last time Tottenham and City played in the EPL was very recently, on January 19. “Spurs” led after the first half with a score of 2-0, but managed to fall apart in the second half, losing 2:4
Tottenham have not beaten Man City at home since August 15, 2021. Back then, Jose Mourinho’s side beat the Citizens 1-0

PREDICTION

We don’t have much faith in Antonio Conte’s team. Despite the statistics of the teams’ recent games in North London, there is nothing surprising about this balance of power. Man City are gaining form and fighting for first place in the APL, while Tottenham are not at all impressed with their level of play.

Man City are not going to lay down their arms in the battle to win the EPL. Guardiola has publicly criticized his team, giving the players a “headache” for “sloppiness” and “lack of motivation”, which has certainly had an effect. City have levelled the results and are ready to chase Arsenal. Another bad news for Tottenham: Erling Holland failed to score a goal against the Canaries and received his share of criticism. As a rule, after such stories, Holland always disappoints the opponents of the “city”.
