It’s impossible to argue against City looking straightforward for a win after how clockwork the win over Madrid was. Guardiola appears to have sped up the rate at which his side gel in attack, inspired by a core including the influential Kevin De Bruyne and the explosive talents of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus upfront.
Tottenham’s rearguard, which looked uncertain in clashes against Paris Saint-Germain and Roma so far, will certainly creak under the weight of Pep’s attack which will be out to claim another high-profile scalp in the United States.
And while the likes of Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen can always be expected to have their say, City’s defensive reshuffle can be reasonably confident in keeping their opponents at bay.
Indeed, the decision to bolster John Stones on either side by hard men Nicolas Otamendi and Vincent Kompany proved a masterstroke against Madrid and would be key to shutting out Spurs at the business end.
That, combined with City’s irresistible forward line, make up the ingredients for a win for the men from Manchester - unmissable at the odds of 30/1 (31.0) with £1 max stake for new Betfair customers.
