Tottenham vs Man City: Top free betting tips

Tottenham and Man City will go head-to-head in the FA Cup fourth round on Friday night in a draw that will have pleased neither side. The Blues have never even scored a goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium so will want that monkey off their backs if nothing else while Spurs would rather be facing City with Son Heung-Min available. Our Tottenham vs Man City prediction is for the Spurs away voodoo to continue for Guardiola and for the North London outfit to progress to the 5th round.

Match result prediction: Tottenham to win

Tottenham's home record against Man City has been ridiculous since the club moved to their new stadium in 2019 (five wins in five matches) and despite player availability being an issue, the scars that City have suffered on this ground could prove to be too much. They've missed penalties here, hit the woodwork umpteen times and just can't seem to score a goal never mind win. Spurs also showed in the recent clash at the Etihad Stadium that they are more than a match for the Blues.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals

Although we are backing Spurs to win, we are expecting City to get on the scoresheet and contribute to what we believe will be a goal-fest. Three of the last four H2Hs between Man City and Spurs have finished 3-2, 4-2 and 3-3 which shows how these two sides like to go at one and other. Spurs have their first-choice defence back which will mean they will play high up the pitch while City are obviously going to go for it like they always do.

​​​Correct score prediction: Tottenham 3-2 Man City

We are predicting fireworks on Friday night in what will surely turn out to be the pick of the matches for the entire FA Cup weekend. Kevin de Bruyne is expected to start the match while Erling Haaland could also be fit for Man City. Meanwhile, Timo Werner will be making his home debut and Richarlison is on a hot goalscoring streak.

How far will Man City fans travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?

Man City have a long trip down south to look forward to on Friday night and there are no trains available back to Manchester after the match so the travelling Blues will either be driving, getting the coach or staying overnight in London. The total distance between Manchester and North London is around 200 miles and will take close to four hours for those driving or taking the coach.

Tottenham vs Man City: Tickets

Tottenham still have a limited number of tickets available to season ticket holders and members for the match and fans can purchase directly through the club website. Manchester City were given a bumper allocation of 9,000 tickets for the match and they have managed to sell all of these despite the logistical complications. In the end, the club were offering tickets to anyone who had previously attended a home match at the Etihad Stadium but regardless, they have done well to sell out their allocation.
