Tottenham vs Manchester City Prediction

Manchester City is by far the superior team here and they have also been playing in much better form recently. Tottenham has been losing a lot recently and they have struggled to score goals in their away matches this year. They are also dealing with some off the field distractions coming into this match. Their manager Antonio Conte has been making headlines all week as he says the club is not interested in winning and they are constantly bringing in players who are not ready for the big stage and do not mesh well with the strategy he is proposing. He also claims that the club is now denying him from speaking to Italian media and right now this whole club is an absolute mess on and off the pitch. Man City just played in a Champions League match taking a 5-0 lead over Sporting in Portugal so they will be ready to come out in full force in this match, although Pep has not really been the type of manager to rest players anyway. Manchester City are just too powerful for Tottenham and they will not be able to compete here at Etihad. Man City will thrash Tottenham in this match.
