Betting Tip: Man City @ 12/13 with betvictor

Manchester City were just starting to develop an invincible tag when Juventus and then West Ham brought them down to earth with a bump. Even a club who spend £50m per player aren’t immune to surprise defeats it seems.

Nevertheless, Manuel Pellegrini has a very strong squad this season and we’re happy to take close to even money (19/20 10Bet) that the visitors overcome a Tottenham Hotspur team who are a work in progress under Mauricio Pochettino.

Vincent Kompany and David Silva should be back for this BT Sport-televised clash and they bring defensive steel and midfield creativity in equal measures. Silva makes this team tick, with Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling expected to flank him.

City have collected away wins at Crystal Palace, Everton and West Brom thus far and they have all been achieved without conceding a goal. With Spurs and Harry Kane short in that department, Coral offer an attractive 27/10 that the league leaders oblige without conceding.

Let’s not consider Sergio Aguero to score first in this game considering the Argentine has only managed to find the net in one Premier League match to date, with the bookies pricing him up artificially short.

However, De Bruyne is a more interesting prospect at 8/1 with 888sport and the Belgian has already scored twice since arriving from Wolfsburg for an eye-watering fee.

It won’t be easy to breach the Tottenham defence who boast a couple of talented Belgians themselves. Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will return after being rested for Wednesday’s derby defeat against Arsenal, although can the midfield stand up to Manchester City’s Yaya Toure and Fernandinho?

We think not and are happy to be with the Premier League title favourites as they look to return to winning ways after a demolition of Sunderland on Tuesday night.
