Manchester City have lost four away matches on the spin in the league yet they travel to White Hart Lane to face Spurs as strong favourites at 11/10 (BetVictor). Manuel Pellegrini’s charges also stumbled unconvincingly over the finish line against Aston Villa so they’re perhaps a little short while Spurs consequently look overpriced at 11/4 courtesy of bet365 given their home advantage.
Nevertheless, Mauricio Pochettino’s men lost to Villa in their last fixture on their own patch so punters should tread carefully and indeed, it could be argued that the stalemate, at 11/4 with Stan James is the best match bet.
Nevertheless, all three options appear risky and a better approach could be to go for goals. Betway’s 1/2 about both teams notching for example, looks a banker, Stan James quote a slightly chunkier 4/7 about a match tally of three or more goals but it’s Sergio Aguero that really catches the eye. The City front man has struck nine times in seven appearances against Spurs and Coral rate him at an enticing 4/1 to break the deadlock.
Sergio Aguero to score first – 4/1 (Coral)
