Spurs are beginning to look a little more Mourinho-like. Across all competitions, nine of his first 10 matches saw a minimum of three goals, averaging exactly four per game, while five of the subsequent seven have gone under that threshold, averaging 1.7.
However, despite bringing down the levels of excitement, Spurs still possess just two clean sheets in 18 matches and one in their past 12.
Man City To Win 2-1
That doesn’t inspire confidence against the league’s top scorers. Pep Guardiola may have bemoaned a lack of clinical finishing hosting Man Utd midweek, but that was just the second time across all tournaments this season where his team has failed to score, and the first in 26 games, while away from home they’ve scored in each of their last 23 games dating back to a 1-0 defeat to Spurs themselves at this venue in the Champions League.
However, although City are certainly capable of racking up big numbers, limiting their results to those against the top seven in the table, they’ve only won by at least two goals once from seven outings in the league, while they didn’t manage a single clean sheet.
We wouldn’t expect any Mourinho team to get battered, but as 2-0 and 1-0 defeats to Chelsea and Liverpool respectively have shown, the Portuguese coach tends to take the sting out of these games.
He also has to continue finding solutions to a Harry Kane shaped hole up front, though given Man City’s inability to rack up clean sheets, the likes of Heung-min Son and Lucas Moura should find a route through to goal at some stage.
Man City To Win And Both Teams To Score
Although both teams to score is a little short to get behind, we’re quite comfortable coupling it with the City win.
Spurs haven’t coped well in the big games this season and since late September, they’ve lost all seven matches when facing either the current top six domestically or Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with both teams finding the net on five occasions.
Meanwhile, the Citizens have conceded in five of their past seven wins on their travels in all competitions.
Sergio Aguero To Score Anytime
While one or two of Spurs’ players could come into contention to score, we’re finding it hard to look beyond Man City’s Sergio Aguero.
The Argentine broke records in January as he became the highest-scoring foreign player in Premier League history with a hat-trick at Villa, and his last four league appearances have yielded seven goals as he found the net in each.
He was unlucky not to score midweek in their League Cup second leg against Man Utd, having one chalked off after straying marginally offside, and can continue the good work here.
