- Bet City Win & BTTS at 9/4 with Bet365
- Back 4 or More Goals at 8/5 with BetVictor
- Back Raheem Sterling to Score First at 11/2 with William Hill
Victory for Tottenham against Manchester City on Monday night will see them leapfrog their opponents and officially enter the running to be Premier League champions.
Mauricio Pochettino has always targeted wins since taking charge at Spurs, and this could be a pivotal moment in his managerial career, with the bookmakers prepared to offer a juicy price about the home side clinching the points - therefore inflicting a first defeat of the Premier League season on Manchester City.
Wembley Isn't Home
Tottenham are a 16/5 shot with BetVictor to claim the spoils at Wembley Stadium, though there will be a tinge of regret that they are not able to face City at a new-look White Hart Lane, instead of a ground which has never completely felt like home, despite some memorable performances.
It seems as though Pep Guardiola’s side enjoy visiting the national stadium as they made short work of Chelsea in the Community Shield in August before the season started properly, while they were outstanding when winning 3-1 in this fixture last term.
William Hill offer 5/6 about the visitors celebrating a win in this encounter, after they could easily have left Anfield with the spoils three weeks ago when winning a late penalty, only for Riyad Mahrez to sky his spot kick and deny his team the chance to steal a march.
The aggregate score in two Premier League encounters last season was 7-2 and City have the ammunition to inflict another defeat on their opponents, with bet365 going 9/4 about an away win and both teams to score as was the case in both matches between the teams last term.
The draw can’t be ruled out and BetVictor are generous enough to chalk up 3/1 that this happens, with City having failed to despatch Wolves at Molineux before drawing with Liverpool. Away games like this aren’t straightforward for the champions and there’s a school of thought that Vincent Kompany remains a liability at the back.
The last three encounters between Spurs and City have served up four or more goals and that explains why Over 2.5 Goals is a 6/10 chance, although we really like the 8/5 with BetVictor that there are four or more goals scored - this is the sort of bet where you can kick back and enjoy the action.
Aguero v Kane
The match will feature two of the Premier League’s most lethal strikers and perhaps we might see a shoot-out between Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero, with the bookmakers putting them at the top of their First Goalscorer tissues.
William Hill can’t split the two players and there is 7/2 about either player opening the scoring, with Raheem Sterling possibly making more value at 11/2 considering how in-form the England man is right now.
