Man City vs Spurs Tips

The two defeated sides from the weekend’s derby matches face off on Thursday night, with both requiring immediate responses to their neighbourly disappointment.

Man City (1/3) now find themselves eight points behind leaders Arsenal and (at the time of writing) just one point above their city rivals.

Pep Guardiola must secretly have some concerns about how their form has dropped off and some critics have questioned if the signing of Erling Haaland has actually weakened the team.

Antonio Conte, meanwhile, must be contemplating just how far off his Spurs (13/2) team have fallen behind the title chasing pack and should they lose here, could find themselves out of the top six by the weekend.

Team news:

Pep Guardiola had a scare in midweek with chief lynchpin Kevin de Bruyne missing training on Tuesday. The manager is expecting him to be available for this crucial clash, however.

Antonio Conte also has the choice of most of his squad, with only Lucas Moura confirmed out. Rodrigo Bentancur will be a late fitness assessment.

Latest Man City vs Spurs Betfred Odds

Man City to win and over 2.5 goals  – 5/6

Man City actually looked the better team for large parts of the Manchester Derby and will feel aggrieved to have lost, especially given the nature of Bruno Fernandes’ equaliser.

Spurs meanwhile, were totally outclassed by their North London rivals and while they won at the Etihad last season, it’s hard to see them doing so again here.

This fixture finished 3-2 last season and 12 of the last 14 games with Spurs in Manchester have seen over 2.5 goals land.

Erling Haaland to score first – 7/4

Betfred are running their famed Double Delight/ Hat-trick Heaven Promotion on this match, meaning should Haaland score first and then go on to score a second, you will be paid at double the odds (7/2). Should the Norwegian score a 3rd, you would be paid at triple the odds (21/4).

Haaland has hit a bit of a brick wall by his standards recently, failing to score in his last three games. However, his record shows that won’t last for long and with this offer running, it could be a good time to take advantage.
