Reason For Manchester City vs Tottenham Betting Tips
First piece of domestic silverware on the line
Manchester City and Tottenham meet at Wembley Stadium to contest the 61st League Cup Final on Sunday in what promises to be a gripping tussle for the first piece of domestic silverware in 2020/21.
The teams will square off against the backdrop of a Super League collapse and controversy that involved both clubs, though any off-field furore will be forgotten once referee Paul Tierney blows his first whistle at the home of football in London.
Dominant City targeting more success
Manchester City have made the Carabao Cup their own in recent seasons, and the Citizens are the odds-on favourites to lift the trophy for the fourth year in a row and the sixth time in eight campaigns overall on Sunday.
City fluffed their lines in the FA Cup when they blew their chances of landing a historic quadruple with a semi-final defeat to Chelsea last week, though their subsequent 2-1 triumph at Aston Villa on Wednesday moved them to within touching distance of a seventh Premier League title.
The Citizens’ comeback win at Villa Park was marred by the sending off of key defender John Stones however, and the centre-half’s suspension means he will miss Sunday’s Final, while injured Belgian schemer Kevin de Bruyne and Argentine hitman Sergio Aguero are also major doubts.
Day of destiny for Tottenham
Thrust into the spotlight following the rapid removal of Jose Mourinho, interim boss Ryan Mason leads Tottenham into the Carabao Cup Final in just his second game in charge.
Mason has a huge call to make ahead of Spurs’ Wembley date with City, and the inexperienced caretaker must decide whether a half-fit Harry Kane is better than no Kane at all on Sunday.
The talismanic centre-forward missed Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Southampton on Wednesday with an ankle complaint, though Mason revealed that Kane was “doing absolutely everything he can to be back out on the football pitch” in the lead up to the Final.
Sunday a step too far for Mason and Spurs?
Cup competitions can often provide the perfect setting for fairy-tale storylines and uplifting underdog upsets; however, we can only see the Carabao Cup Final going according to script.
Sunday’s Wembley showdown pits managerial novice Ryan Mason against a master tactician and serial winner in Pep Guardiola, and with Tottenham in the midst of transition, City’s well-oiled machine can glide through the gears.
The Citizens beat a Tottenham team wielding a fully fit Harry Kane 3-0 in February – one of 29 victories in City’s last 32 matches in all competitions – and we expect the Manchester giant’s superior class and vast cup final experience to come to the fore again this weekend.
City haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last five assignments however, and with the formidable John Stones and Ruben Dias central-defensive partnership broken up, there could be room for Spurs to notch a consolation.
Bettors are advised to back the Man City win and both teams to score combination as a result, while a 3-1 correct score prediction tips the Citizens to rattle three goals past Spurs for the second time in a row.
Foden City’s man for the big occasion
City starlet Phil Foden is fast becoming one of the Citizens’ most influential performers, and fresh from notching in both legs of the club’s Champions League quarter-final tie with Borussia Dortmund and a crucial equalizer at Villa, Foden could be worth backing to get his name on the scoresheet again at Wembley.
Manchester City injuries and team news
John Stones is suspended and will miss Sunday’s cup final, while Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero are still major doubts.
Aymeric Laporte will come into the XI to replace Stones, though out-of-favour Raheem Sterling could miss out again.
Tottenham Hotspur injures and team news
Ben Davies is ruled out for Tottenham, though the biggest question mark is over Harry Kane, who is in a race to be fit for the final following another ankle injury.
Gareth Bale is expected to keep his place in the team following his match-defining performance against Southampton in midweek.
