When they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on top-four hopeful Spurs, Man City will have the opportunity to cut the lead that Arsenal has over them in the Premier League standings to just five points
With the Gunners overcoming struggling Everton on Saturday, the Citizens once again find themselves eight points behind Mikel Arteta’s troops and in need of a victory to not let the Gunners slip away from them.

Spurs vs Man City Betting Tips
- Manchester City to win and both teams to score @ 2/1
- #PickYourPunt – Rodrigo Bentancur to be booked & Erling Haaland to score anytime @ 10/3
Lucas Moura and Pape Sarr are both in contention to play some part after recovering from injury, while Richarlison has also shaken off a knock and is pushing to be handed a start.
Djed Spence has left on loan to Rennes and Matt Doherty has joined Atletico Madrid after his contract was terminated, so deadline-day arrival Pedro Porro could be drafted straight into the starting XI.
City allowed Joao Cancelo to join Bayern Munich on loan until the end of the season, though he had already lost his spot in the side to 18-year-old Rico Lewis in recent weeks.
John Stones was forced off in the FA Cup win over Arsenal with a thigh injury and is set to be out for the next couple of weeks, while Phil Foden missed the clash due to a foot issue and it’s uncertain whether he will be fit enough to return.
Man City to win and both teams to score @ 2/1
After losing back-to-back games to Southampton (EFL Cup) and Manchester United, City have roared back to form with three straight wins across all competitions, beating Spurs 4-2, Wolves 3-0 and Arsenal 1-0.
The Citizens appear to have rediscovered their mojo after that little blip and they should be able to come away with all three points on Sunday, even if they have lost their last four trips to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium without scoring.
Pep Guardiola’s side have shown their usual fluency in attack this season and they are the leading scorers in the Premier League, netting an impressive 53 goals from 20 matches, and that extra quality in the final third should see them through this test.
Spurs have also looked good up top, as they have found the back of the net 40 times, but 31 goals conceded shows where their issues are and a leaky defence will be exposed again.
Worryingly for Antonio Conte, he has seen his side lose four of their last five home league matches – going down to Newcastle, Liverpool, Aston Villa and the Gunners – and another defeat could be coming their way.
#PickYourPunt – Rodrigo Bentancur to be booked & Erling Haaland to score anytime @ 10/3
Spurs have not held back in their challenges this season and they have received 42 yellow cards, with Rodrigo Bentancur accounting for six of those to lead his club’s charts in that department.
The Uruguay international is not one to shy away from a tackle, something which can work against him at times, while he also has a reputation for being a bit of a hot-head and gets involved in silly altercations.
Adding to this #PickYourPunt is for Erling Haaland to find the back of the net. Quite simply, the Norway international has been sensational since his summer arrival from Borussia Dortmund, scoring a league-high 25 goals already.
The 22-year-old netted in the 4-3 win over Spurs last month before then hitting his fourth hat-trick of the campaign in the 3-0 victory over Wolves. He is a man in form and looks ready to add to his tally at the expense of Tottenham.
