Man City v Spurs: Betting Preview
It may only be the second week of the 2019-20 Premier League season, but we’ve already seen some spectacular football from online bookmakers top contenders for the title.
We expect more sensational football, in what’s set to be the most exciting match of the week, when Spurs travel to the Etihad where they go head-to-head with title favourites Man City.
Both teams may have won their opening fixtures, Spurs coming from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-1 and Man City thumping West Ham 5-0. Bookmakers offer Man City as favourites to win.
Overall, Pep Guardiola’s City side have a much better tack record against Spurs.
Pochettino’s men haven’t managed a victory over Man City in the Premier League since a win 3 years ago in 2016, although they did beat them in the Champions League last season.
Online bookmakers clearly see Man City as winning the tie and so Spurs will really have to raise their game and try to get at least a point after what was a bit of a shaky start to their season.
In the lead up to the Man City v Spurs match, we've taken a look at both team’s recent performances, and any player injuries that could affect either managers match preparations.
Man City: Team News
British bookmakers favourites for the title Man City, had a flying start to their Premier League campaign, securing a magnificent 5-0 away victory against West Ham.
Raheem Sterling was in stunning form in his opening performance, debuting his season with a spectacular hat-trick, while Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero took the other 2 goals.
Pep Guardiola’s side look in good form to take their 3rd consecutive title, and although he has a few injuries to contend with ahead of the Spurs fixture, they look stronger than their opponents.
Both Leroy Sane and Benjamin Mendy have been ruled out with knee injuries, while it’s still doubtful whether Fernandinho or Joao Cancelo will be back in contention for a place in the side.
Man City have beaten Spurs in the last 4 Premier League fixtures, and if they continue to play as well as they did against West ham, they should easily take another 3 points from this match.
Man City: Form
Looking at the last 5 fixtures that Man City have played in all competitions, they've won 3, drawn 2, and lost 0 scoring a total of 15 goals (3 goals per game) and conceding just 3 goals.

Spurs: Team News
Although Spurs won their opening match of the new Premier League season at home against Aston Villa, we didn’t see an altogether convincing Spurs side.
Pochettino’s men were 1-0 down until the 73rd minute, but luckily clawed it back with 3 goals from Tanguy Ndombele (1) and Harry Kane (2) in the last 15 minutes to win 3-1.
Spurs come into the match as underdogs, and while they beat Man City in last season Champions League, even the most optimistic knows that a win at the Etihad is a very big ask!
Pochettino also has a few injury concerns to deal with ahead of their trip up North.
Dele Alli is still missing, while new signing Ryan Sessegnon is struggling with a thigh injury, and Ben Davies and Serge Aurier are also set to miss the City match.
Alongside injuries, Spurs are also missing both Heung-min Son and Juan Foyth who were both suspended after receiving red cards in last seasons match against Bournemouth.
Spurs' record over their last 5 matches in all competitions is won 2, drawn 2 and lost 1. They've scored less goals than Man City, 8 in total (1.6 per game) and conceded more (6).
