Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes that Manchester City will win today’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium.
‘It is difficult to oppose Manchester City on home soil despite the fact that they have a vital Champions League Qualifier, behind closed doors, in Moscow on Tuesday’, the ex-England international striker write on Betvictor.com.
‘City have won six of their last seven against Spurs scoring twenty two times in the process including a 6-0 win in the corresponding fixture last season. I expect City to win a high scoring game’.
City will indeed head into today’s match as the favourites and will be most neutral football fans’ favourites.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side are currently second in the league table with 14 points from seven matches, just five points behind leaders Chelsea.
Meanwhile, Spurs are sixth in the standings with 11 points from seven games after returning to winning ways before the two-week international break with a 1-0 victory over Southampton at White Hart Lane.
City do have a strong form at home and have one of the two best squads in the Premier League, but they have slipped up at the Etihad already this season.
Stoke City stunned the Citizens 1-0 in Manchester back in August, and there is a chance that Spurs could do the same today.
