Man City vs Tottenham: Top free betting tips
Manchester City face Tottenham on Sunday afternoon in a crunch game at the top of the Premier League. Our Man City vs Tottenham prediction is that Man City will put Spurs to the sword after their disappointing draw with Liverpool last week. Tottenham have struggled in recent weeks and their absent players will be a huge loss.
Match result prediction: Man City to win
Man City will feel aggrieved that they didn't beat Liverpool last weekend. Not only did they dominate the game, but they also had a goal softly ruled out for a foul on Alisson which would have made the score 2-0 at the time. Despite the draw, City are looking good and are unbeaten in seven games in all competitions while Tottenham have lost their last three league matches.
Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals
Despite their poor form, Tottenham will go to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday with an attacking mindset. Their defensive line will be sat on the halfway line which will make for an entertaining and stretched football match. City have scored three or more goals in six of their last seven games while eleven goals have been scored Spurs' last three matches combined.
Correct score prediction: Man City 4-1 Tottenham
Tottenham will be brave on Sunday but it will be their undoing and the likes of Jeremy Doku and Erling Haaland will thrive in the space left behind the Spurs defence. We expect Tottenham to be in the game for the most part but for City to exploit their tired and depleted defence as the match enters the second half.
Man City vs Tottenham team news
Man City predicted lineup vs Tottenham
John Stones could make his first start for Manchester City since suffering a muscle injury this weekend after the defender spent the last two games as an unused substitute. Mateo Kovacic is another player who could return to the starting lineup after the Croatian returned to full training this week which means Guardiola is currently only without Matheus Nunes and Kevin de Bruyne.
Ederson – Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake – Rodri, Alvarez, Silva – Doku, Haaland, Foden
Tottenham predicted lineup vs Man City
Tottenham's injury problems continue to go from bad to worse with the news that Rodrigo Bentancur is set for another extended period on the sidelines just as the Uruguayan returned from an ACL injury. Bentancur joins the likes of James Maddison, Micky van de Ven and Richarlison on the touchline with the problems derailing the club's immense start to the season.
Vicario – Porro, Royal, Davies, Udogie – Bissouma, Lo Celso – Johnson, Gil, Kulusevski – Son
