The Saturday Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City transcends territorial rivalry, as two great coaches of our time plot strategies to outsmart each other. The Citizens and the Spurs will engage in a brutal clash, after rested up in the two-week international break which came as a rescue for the English clubs battling a hectic schedule earlier.
A lot is taking place out of the field as well, Jose Mourinho gaining a foothold in London, City trying to rope in Messi and contract extension of Pep Guardiola with City in doubt. Losing a match, sharing the spoils and conceding more goals, it is a lousy start for the 2018 and 2019 title winners, which the Spanish coach will be eager to change. With all these happening around, expect a cutthroat contest on Saturday.

Here is the lineup prediction for Manchester City next game against Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester City Lineup
Defenders: Walker, Dias, Laporte,
Midfielders: , Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva, Foden
Attackers: Mahrez, Gabriel, Sterling
Tottenham Hotspur Lineup
Defenders: Davies, Sanchez, Alderweireld
Midfielders: Ndombele, Lucas, Hojbjerg, Bergwijn, Dier
Attackers: Kane, Son
The Spurs stay unbeaten in their last seven clashes, a stark contrast from the home loss to Everton 0-1 at the beginning of the season. Not to forget the incredible night at Old Trafford 1-6, where Kane and Son teamed up to score a total of four goals. The partnership of Son and Kane is a positive for Tottenham, the duo scoring 29 goals together. Mourinho prefers to steer the game through Kane, the forward has scored 17 goals in 14 games, providing 10 assists.
City depicts an audacious performance in Champions League yet disappoints the English fans in Premier League. Fighting age and Guardiola’s intolerance to complacency, City’s play this season has been mundane. The Citizens fail to follow their natural style of play, drawing every other game. Even if Fernandinho’s absence affects City, recovery of Sterling’s calf injury is good news. Fluidizing the field with dynamic energy, Gabriel Jesus plays a vital role in the field. The young striker has scored 11 goals in 11 fixtures in all competitions, last three goals in his three appearances for the City.
Jose Mourinho vs Pep Guardiola
A tactical genius, Jose Mourinho deploys 4-3-3 and also 4-2-3-1 at times. Famous for direct play, in contrast to the possession play popularised by Barca, Mourinho presses high, counter striking quickly leveraging the opposition’s aggression. When the time arrives, Harry Kane drops to a false nine doing wonders, linking up the midfield and attack. This propels other strikers in the team like Son to score goals.
Pep Guardiola’s record of 10 wins from 23 meetings in all competitions is the best of any coach against the Special One. Pep Guardiola usually adapts 4-3-3 in City, swiftly rotating to 4-4-2 or 4-2-3-1 if needed and trains his players aptly. Guardiola’s men build up the play gradually with lateral movements rather than quick vertical ones. Captain Fernandinho’s injury, who plays as CDM (Central Defensive Midfielder), lays a hole in Guardiola’s plans as Rori isn’t capable of playing in a single pivot system which the midfielder himself admits.
Head to Head
In the Premier League, the Spurs have lost once in the past five meetings at Tottenham against City. Mourinho’s side, in a vein rich of form, has lost just one of their last 14, a 1-0 Europa League defeat to Anderlecht. Tottenham brushed off City 2-0 in February early this year, but have won only 2 out of 9 head to head matches against City. Presenting an outstanding form this season, the Spurs striker Son has seen the back of the net five times against City in his career.
Manchester City enters this match five points behind Tottenham, fighting unusual struggles like scoring just 1.43 goals per match so far. Sharing the spoils with Liverpool 1-1 in the previous encounter being City’s third in five games. Notably, City has lost only once in the last 12 competitions. Toiling in the back at 10th position, Pep Guardiola’s men can’t afford to lose this match. Spurs, on the other hand, are trailing Leicester, accompanying Liverpool in the title race, with 17 points.
Mourinho’s men are in amazing form and have the firepower, creativity and guile to swing the balance in their favour. Most of Spurs’ match-winning goals happened in the second half this season, so Citizens will give their all to spall spaces and claim authority in the first half of the match.
Guardiola is an eagle who flies over the clouds, obstacles like injuries and ageing star players won’t affect him. None can’t dispute his strategizing ability and the vision he carries for his team. Opting a 4.00 for Tottenham to win is extremely inviting going on form but selecting a conservative Tottenham or draw double chance is more intellectual.
