Tottenham vs Manchester City: Head-to-Head
Since Pep Guardiola’s arrival at Manchester City, the two sides have played four times. Spurs won the first encounter 2-0 at White Hart Lane in October 2016, followed that same season by a 2-2 draw at the Etihad (January 2017). However, City dominated the next two encounters, winning 4-1 in Manchester in their first match during the 2017-18 season in December, followed by a 3-1 win away at Wembley in April of this year.
This match will be the two sides’ first meeting in the 2018-19 Premier League season, with the return fixture in Manchester to be played in April next year.
Tottenham vs Manchester City: Prediction
Given their recent form and head-to-head record, it’s hard to argue against the bookmakers on this one, with all the major online sports books installing City as clear odds-on favourites to win. The best price you can get currently on an outright win for Guardiola’s side is 10/11 with Betway, with all brands hovering around this mark.
If you fancy a Spurs win, you can get a remarkably generous 16/5 with BetVictor, although it is as short as 29/10 with some bookmakers.
The draw is currently priced at 31/10 with Marathon Bet and Unibet.
With both Sergio Agüero (5 goals in 8 appearances) and Raheem Sterling (4 in 7) in good goalscoring form, and a miserly defense that has thus conceded only 3 goals in 8 Premier League games, plus the fact that Spurs has conceded 7 times this season already, a 2-0 away win to Manchester City seems a highly likely final scoreline (and a good bet at 10/1 with BetFred).
Tottenham v Man City: Betting Tip
Given the fact that between them Spurs and City have scored 36 goals this campaign, some of the best bets for this match are in the Total Goals Over/Under market. Particularly enticing is the 9/1 you can get with Bet365 on Over 5.5.
When you take into account that City under Guardiola are noted for the way in which they attack teams from the kick off, another interesting bet is the 9/2 you can get with SkyBet on it scoring in the first 10 minutes of the match.
