Manchester City and Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League this weekend.
Tim Sherwood, speaking on behalf of TAG Heuer, has predicted Tottenham Hotspur to draw with Manchester City this weekend.
Tottenham will take on City away from home at the Wembley Stadium in London in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
The Citizens are in great form at the moment and have won their last 15 Premier League games.
Spurs have recovered from their recent slump in form, but it is hard to see the North London outfit challenge for the league title given the way City are playing at the moment.
Former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Sherwood has predicted Mauricio Pochettino’s side to pick up a point from the encounter at the Etihad Stadium.
“I’m going for a draw,” said Sherwood, speaking on behalf of TAG Heuer. “I don’t like to sit on the fence but I think Tottenham are capable and if they get Man City on not a great day and Lloris is fantastic, as he can be in these big games, then I think they can nick a draw here.”
Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen, though, does not believe that Spurs will win against City.
The former Newcastle United striker has backed Tottenham to score at the Etihad Stadium, but he expects the home team to pick up all three points from the encounter.
“Manchester City are without a win in their last four PL games against Spurs and, surprisingly perhaps, the north London outfit have won more away games against City (10) than they have at any other PL club,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com.
“That said City have been irresistible so far this season and their record-breaking 15 successive PL wins shows no sign of stopping.
“Pep Guardiola won 19 Bundesliga games in a row between October 2013 and March 2014 when in charge of Bayern Munich and I would expect him to be challenging his City side to break that extraordinary record. Spurs could easily score at the Etihad but I expect City to score more.
A footnote added: “Tip: City to win and both teams to score at 7/4”
