City to win heavyweight tussle

72

Manchester City’s winning run in the Premier League will be tested when Tottenham head to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, but they should still have too much for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

Man City to win and both teams to score @ 6/4

City picked up where they left off from last season by thrashing West Ham 5-0 in their Premier League opener at the London Stadium last weekend and they have now won a staggering 15 top-flight matches in a row – a run that stretches back to the end of January.

The Citizens also have a pretty formidable league record against Spurs, as they have won four top-flight matches on the spin against the north London side and they will fancy their chances of maintaining that impressive record.

Spurs will of course provide a tough test for City and they scored three when they visited the Etihad in the Champions League back in April.

While they might not net that many this time around, it would be a surprise not to see Spurs score, particularly as Harry Kane well and truly broke his August scoring hoodoo by grabbing a brace against Aston Villa last weekend.

Brighton to beat West Ham @ 6/4

The Seagulls caused one of the surprises of the opening weekend in the Premier League, as they won 3-0 at Watford, and there are already signs that there is a new attacking look to Graham Potter’s side.

Potter certainly has plenty of artillery in the final third to choose from after Neal Muapay and Florin Andone both scored from the bench last weekend, while West Ham’s defence still looks suspect, although they won’t be the only side to ship five against Man City this season.

The Hammers will certainly want to bounce back on Saturday, but their record in this fixture is not great, as they have only taken one point from their four Premier League meetings with the Seagulls and have suffered defeats both times they have visited The Amex.

Aston Villa to beat Bournemouth @ 27/20

Villa impressed despite losing on their return to the Premier League against Tottenham last weekend and they will have the backing of a raucous home support behind them at Villa Park this time around.

Dean Smith’s side ended last season in fine form on their own patch, winning six of their final seven Championship games, while Bournemouth’s away record in the Premier League last term was poor, as they lost 13 of their 19 games on their travels.

The Villans have also lost just one of their last six meetings with Cherries, who were held at home by another of the newly promoted clubs, Sheffield United, last weekend.
