Why you should back Manchester City
City is hungry for more after losing to Chelsea in the Champions League final and again in an FA Cup semifinal. The talented squad expected a haul of silverware, and league and Carabao Cup titles weren’t enough. It was the clear best team in the EPL on both ends of the pitch last season, leading the league in goals (83) by a wide margin and conceding the fewest (32). It added Aston Villa star Jack Grealish in the offseason, and Kane is being courted heavily to join him. Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden are banged up, but Man City has talent to spare.
Grealish is one of the league’s most talented players and had six goals and 10 assists for Villa in 2020-21 with little support. Now he is on a team with seven players who scored at least six times. Ilkay Gundogan led the way with 13, and Riyad Mahrez (nine), Gabriel Jesus (nine) and Ferran Torres (seven) also are expected to be featured. The Citizens have shut out Tottenham in consecutive games, including a 1-0 League Cup win in April when City outshot them 21-2. City will be eager to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Leicester in the Community Shield last Saturday. Why you should back Tottenham
Kane’s availability will be decided after Saturday’s training, and he will be eager to impress his suitors if he is chosen to play. He led the Premier League in goals (23) and assists (14) last season, but the 28-year-old England captain wants to go win some silverware. South Korean Son Heung-Min, who has scored 66 goals in the last five seasons with the team, could be the key for Tottenham. He scored the only goal as Spurs beat Arsenal 1-0 in a friendly last Sunday, and he has scored in all three games he has played against Man City at Hotspur Stadium.
The Arsenal win, as well as a 2-2 draw with European champion Chelsea four days earlier, should instill confidence entering the new season. Tottenham is 2-1-1 in the last four league matchups with the Citizens and will be eager to avenge the League Cup final loss in the most recent match. It tied for second in home wins last season, going 10-3-6 with a plus-15 goal differential. Spurs were middle of the pack in shots last season but made them count, ranking second in the EPL in percentage on target (37.6) and scoring the third-most goals (66).
