Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

There is a stellar clash in the Premier League on Monday evening, as two of the division’s top teams meet in London when Tottenham host Manchester City.

It’s been a strong start to the campaign for both teams so far, with Pep Guardiola’s team currently sat third in the table after the weekend’s results, albeit just three points behind leaders Liverpool with a far superior goal difference. As for Spurs, they enter this contest in fifth but could rise above City with three points, having won seven of their nine Premier League games thus far.

Manchester City’s defence of the Premier League title looks set to be a successful one if there start to the campaign is anything to go by, having won seven of their first nine games. The team are also unbeaten heading into game number 10 of the campaign, as they look to hold off what looks to be a more challenging title race than the previous year.

Still, Guardiola will be confident in his side’s ability to overcome any challenge put forth, with this being one of the strongest teams to ever feature in the Premier League. Not only have City been excellent going forward this season, but they have also been solid at the back in recent weeks, conceding just once in their last seven games. City are currently priced at 17/10 with Betway to keep a clean sheet here.

As such, goals are certainly expected in this one, which is hardly a surprise when you see that City have already bagged 26 goals in the first nine games of the season, leaving them well on pace to hit the century mark once again. They are devastating going forward and last season virtually secured the Premier League title with a 3-1 defeat of Tottenham at Wembley.

The away side are favourites to repeat the same outcome of result in this contest and are available at 3/4 with BetVictor to pick up the three points on offer. As for Tottenham, they come into this match looking to extend a run of four straight wins in the Premier League, having responded well to a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Wembley.

That said, this is the most significant test that Spurs have faced since then, with recent victories coming against Brighton, Huddersfield Cardiff and Huddersfield. Tottenham are the underdogs here in the betting markets, with prices as high as 4/1 with Betfair on the away outfit to pick up the three points.

Harry Kane has scored five goals in nine Premier League outings so far this season, but Manchester City haven’t been a very generous opponent for him in recent times. Spurs’ talisman has failed to score in each of his last three appearances against Guardiola’s side, but is priced at 5/1 with SkyBet to open the scoring on Monday night.

Tottenham have failed to win any of those games in which Kane has failed to find the back of the net, losing two and drawing one of their last three meetings with the Premier League champions.
