It’s so tight at the top of the Premier League that both Manchester City and Tottenham dropped out of the top six on the back of their respective defeats last time out but the pair aren’t far off the pace so the three points on offer as the duo meet at Eastlands could put one of them right back in the mix.
City have struggled desperately on the road this term but they remain formidable at home so they’re odds-on at 8/11 with Paddy Power to come out on top. A touch unconvincing of late, Spurs are Winner.com’s 9/2 outsiders and bet365 make them 3/1 to snatch a share of spoils but ultimately it’s difficult to oppose Manuel Pellegrini’s men on their own patch.
Nevertheless, a close encounter is on the cards so a City victory by one for the fourth consecutive renewal of this fixture, catches the eye at 14/5 via Ladbrokes while a repeat of last term’s 2-1 home victory is an 8/1 shot at bet365.
In terms of goals, Sergio Aguero struck when the pair met at the Etihad Stadium a year ago with the Argentine striker’s form almost impossible to ignore at the moment, he’s the pick of the bunch in the first scorer market at 4/1 (Stan James).
