Betting Tip: Tottenham +1.00 @ 8/11 with ladbrokes

Manchester City sit fourth in the Premier League table which is clearly three places lower than they expect to be. However, it’s not Chelsea, Manchester United or Liverpool that sit above them but instead Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal.

The Foxes came away from the Etihad Stadium with a 3-1 win last weekend which makes Sunday’s showdown against Tottenham pretty much must-win if Manuel Pellegrini’s side are going to simply have a Champions League spot to show for their Premier League endeavours.

It’s all very well having an expensively-assembled squad including an in-form Sergio Aguero who has scored in the past five matches, although the defence is clearly a shaky one without Vincent Kompany and City were thankful to Joe Hart for helping them recently win at Sunderland.

Coral seem to have the right idea with their best price about City for this match and Tottenham are really confident coming into this one. Since losing 1-0 at home to Leicester, they have won six consecutive matches and will be going for the jugular in this one.

Dele Alli came off the bench to set up Kieran Trippier’s winner last weekend although the England midfielder will line up from the start along with the impressive Eric Dier.

Kevin Wimmer has slotted in nicely alongside Toby Alderweireld to form a central defensive partnership that looked robust against the Hornets, while Trippier and Ben Davies look the part as roving full-backs.

Mauricio Pochettino’s game plan will be to soak up City possession and pressure before trying to exploit their opponents and Spurs tend not to lose on the road.

Indeed, since a 1-0 reverse at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season, it has been six wins and five draws from their eleven road matches.

Therefore, we can simply get with Tottenham on the handicap market knowing that this has paid out on 11/12 occasions when Spurs have taken to the road.

Harry Kane is razor-sharp at the moment, while Spurs haven’t conceded a Premier League goal in the last 240 minutes of football played. With Kevin de Bruyne missing for the home side, we’re more than happy to get against the Citizens.
