Man City vs Spurs Betting Predictions | 2021 EFL Cup Final
Current holders City are no longer fighting for a domestic treble after falling at the semi-final stage in the FA Cup last week but start as firm 4/7 favourites to move a step closer to a league and cup double with a victory inside 90 minutes at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
Pep Guardiola’s side have certainly had to overcome significant obstacles to reach this final, facing three Premier League sides in the four rounds they’ve had to navigate since starting their title defence.
The last of those tussles was with cross-city rivals Manchester Utd in the semi-finals, with City recording their third win in fi visits to Old Trafford. City had to be patient before they picked off Utd with two second-half goals from John Stones and Fernandinho in a 2-0 win.
Events earlier this week mean neutrals have been denied the chance of a first Pep Guardiola vs José Mourinho final since the 2011 Copa Del Rey, a match that went in the Portuguese manager’s favour.
29-year-old rookie Ryan Mason now faces the daunting task of masterminding Spurs’ first trophy win since claiming this title in 2008, after just one game at the helm.
The interim boss will be hoping to have star man Harry Kane back fit for Wembley after the striker was forced to sit out their midweek Premier League win against Southampton.
Spurs’ route to the final was surprisingly hassle-free in comparison to their opponents on Sunday.
The Lilywhites received a bye into the fourth round after League Two side Leyton Orient were unable to fulfil their fixture, before they faced their toughest assignment of the tournament against London rivals Chelsea in the fourth round.
Mason Mount missed the vital spot kick for the Blues in a game that went to penalties, as Spurs enjoyed some rare bragging rights over their near neighbours to set up two ties against Championship opposition in the quarter-finals and semi-finals.
Spurs overcame a stubborn Stoke side in the last eight before easing past Brentford 2-0 in the semis to set up a first domestic cup final appearance in 13 years.
