Both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to bounce back from derby day defeats when they meet at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday evening. At the weekend, Man City lost away to Manchester United before Spurs were humbled by Arsenal 24 hours later. Here at freebets.ltd.uk we'll preview Thursday's huge Premier League fixture, providing the best odds and free bet offers from our betting partners at Coral.
Manchester City are now eight points behind Premier League leaders, Arsenal having dropped points for a second time in three league games. Pep Guardiola's side have failed to score more than a single goal in four of their last five league games.
Spurs' form post-World Cup has been a real cause for concern and they now find themselves five points adrift of the top four. Antonio Conte's side have now won once in four league games since the World Cup, dropping points against Brentford, Aston Villa and Arsenal.
Man City v Spurs: Head-to-head
Manchester City have a dreadful recent record against Tottenham Hotspur and head into Thursday's match on a run of just one win in their last six meetings.
Spurs completed a league double against Man City last season, including a 3-2 win in this corresponding fixture at the Etihad Stadium.
With an eight-point deficit to make up on Arsenal, Manchester City cannot afford to drop any more points if they're to remain in the title race. Despite Spurs superior head-to-head record in this fixture we have to get on the Man City win at 4/11.
Thursday's match will see the league's top two goal scorers meet. Erling Haaland (21) and Harry Kane (15) have an astonishing 36 goals between them already this season and will both be well-supported in the various goal scorer markets. Haaland and Kane are 2/5 and 2/1 respectively to score at any time. Haaland heads the first scorer market at 9/5 whilst Kane is generously priced at 6/1.
With both Haaland and Kane on the pitch, either over 2.5 match goals (1/2) or both teams to score (3/4) could be sensible options.
Tottenham Hotspur have been notoriously slow starters this season with 16 of their last 17 league goals coming in the second half of matches. Spurs are 4/11 to not score a first half goal on Thursday.
- Manchester City: 4/11
- Draw: 4/1
- Tottenham Hotspur: 15/2
