Two of the “big six” promise to steal the spotlight of the Premier League opening weekend as Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City champions rock up to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium to take on Spurs this Sunday.
TOTTENHAM VS MANCHESTER CITY BETTING
Starts don’t get much tougher than the one facing new Tottenham manager, Nuno Espirito Santo. An opening day fixture against the champions, Manchester City, is never easy at the best of times. And it’s made even harder thanks to Pep Guardiola’s pursuit of Spurs captain and talisman Harry Kane.
Few have captured the headlines more than Harry Kane this summer. The Englishman has been at the forefront of transfer speculation since the news of his desire to leave for pastures new in pursuit of silverware was made public towards the end of last season. While the England captain has finally made his return to training after a long vacation, there is much chatter around north London that Harry Kane is looking for the exit, with upcoming opponents Manchester City being his only reasonable destination.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom for Spurs. A solid pre-season in which they faced two of their biggest rivals – Chelsea and Arsenal – has proven fruitful. By promoting Son Heung-min to the starring role, Tottenham were able to come away with a draw and a win – which should go a long way toward raising the team’s morale for this Sunday.
Don’t miss the LV BET Bet Booster – Tottenham at 37/10 (4.70) to lead at half-time is there until kick-off.
Spurs ahead at half-time, and the game to be drawn is on offer at 7/1 (8.00).
Pep Guardiola and his already-fearsome side will look at this season as a way to add a fourth Premier League in five seasons to their collection. The reigning champions begin their title defence this Sunday by travelling to north London and paying a visit to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
While the headlines are set to be stolen by Harry Kane – who, according to his new manager, is likely to feature in the game – Manchester City fans will be looking towards their new England international. After making a record-breaking £100m move from his boyhood club Aston Villa, Jack Grealish will undoubtedly be itching to turn things up a notch and showcase his talent by proving to be every bit as exciting as his price tag would suggest.
John Stones has also been making his fair share of headlines by signing a new deal that promises to see him at City until 2026. The defender is on offer at 25/1 (26.00) to grab the afternoon’s first goal on Sunday.
Fancy a professional 1-0 away win for the champions? That’s 5/1 (6.00).
