Having gone 1-0 up through Jack Grealish’s header, it looked as though Man City were going to close the gap on Arsenal to just two points after the Manchester Derby. However, a controversial Bruno Fernandes goal and another Marcus Rashford strike flipped the game on it’s head, and Arsenal’s North London Derby victory means the gap now sits at eight points.
Spurs were lacklustre in that defeat to their local rivals, and a similar performance here will certainly spell back-to-back defeats for Antonio Conte’s men in what would be a blow to their top-four challenge.
They seem to be slowly edging away from that top bracket of clubs with a W3-D1-L5 record from their last nine league outings, while they also rode their luck in narrow wins over Bournemouth and Leeds in that run, so it’s a far from convincing period for the Lilywhites.
Man City To Win And Both Teams To Score
City haven’t been their electric selves, losing back-to-back matches in all competitions for the first time since the beginning of the 2021/22 season. Both of those matches were away from home, however, and back on home soil they remain imperious going W13-D1-L1 across all competitions. Both of those games they failed to win have come in their last two league outings here though, and it’s not inconceivable that they fail to take three points against a side who have had a history of upsetting the Cityzens.
Spurs have a decent away record this season, losing only to Man United and Arsenal on the road, while they also haven’t been goal shy of late, netting nine times in their last three away games. They managed an unprecedented double over the Champions last year, though they look like a shell of their former selves at the moment it’s hard to find a strong enough reason to back them on recent form.
Only against current bottom-six sides Bournemouth, Nottingham Forest and Southampton have Man City managed to keep a clean sheet at home this season. That’s partly due to the injury sustained by key centre-back Ruben Dias, without whom they’ve won just two of their last five league outings and see a 64% increase in goals conceded when he’s been absent since the beginning of last season. On top of that, the unavailability of John Stones only serves to compound their defensive woes, and while we think they’ll have too much for the visitors, we’re happy to back Kane and co. to at least find the net here.
