Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City will be looking to keep their title hopes alive when they take on Tottenham in a postponed Premier League game on Thursday. The Citizens aim to recover from a heart-breaking loss in the Manchester derby, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Spurs. Despite struggling to find his goal-scoring touch, a man to watch in the home team will be key attacker Erling Haland, while Luis Dias and John Stones remain in the recovery room.
Both Ilkay Gundogan and Aymeric Laporte are likely to return to the starting XI. The capital club, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to Arsenal in the London derby, with the team remaining in fifth position in the standings. Since Antonio Conte’s troops are desperate to move closer to the Champions League berth, we are tempted to put our money on over 2.5 goals. Richarlison is pushing for a start, while Bentacur is a major doubt. This match comes too early for Lucas Moura.
Highlighted Player (Kalvin Phillips):
Kalvin Phillips started his youth career at Wortley Juniors, but he has been playing for Leeds United ever since he joined the Elland Road outfit at the age of 15. The 177-cm-tall midfielder has established himself as a first-team regular at Leeds, but he has yet to make his debut for the England national team.
Born in Leeds on December 2, 1995 Kalvin Phillips is a right-footed footballer whose main position is defensive midfield. However, he is used as a central midfielder as well. The English footballer scored his first ever goal for the Whites in a 2-1 loss to Cardiff City on April 11, 2015.
Kalvin Phillips made his debut for Leeds United against Wolverhampton on April 6, 2015. Nicknamed “Yorkshire Pirlo”, Phillips is known for his sharp passes and long ball distribution. He covers his defensive duties in style as well.
Highlighted Team (Tottenham):
Tottenham Hotspur are a professional football club based in North London. Spurs host their rivals at White Hart Lane and the capacity of the stadium is 36,284. Tottenham won the Premier League (First Division) trophy in 1950/1951 and 1960/1961 and despite producing terrific displays in the 2015/2016 campaign Mauro Pochettino’s team eventually finished the season in third place in the standings.
Tottenham’s bitter rivals are Arsenal, but Chelsea and West Ham United are regarded as the team’s fierce opponents as well. Spurs have won eight FA Cup trophies, with the team also lifting the 1962/1963 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title.
Tottenham Hotspur hammered Atletico Madrid in the final of the competition back then (5-1). The likes of David Ginola, Sol Campbell, Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann, Gary Lineker, Luka Modric, Robbie Keane and Gareth Bale are star players that used to play for the White Hart Lane outfit in the past. The colour of Tottenham Hotspur’s home kit is white.
