Even though this game will have little bearing on where the Premier League crown ends up in May, it’s still a meeting between two of the best sides in the country. There are talented attackers in both sides, so we could see an exciting game with plenty of goals.
Manchester City are 6/11 for the win, which would be their 16th in a row in the Premier League if they overcome Swansea on Wednesday. After taking the points from the Manchester derby last weekend, there seems to be no stopping Guardiola’s side’s march to the title. Spurs will be another test for the Blues, but they usually overcome them with consummate ease.
Tottenham are 28/5 which is a relatively tempting price considering the quality they have in their team. They’ve been inconsistent so far this season though, which is the reason why they could find themselves more than 20 points behind City by the end of this game. With a tough Champions League tie against Juventus coming up in the New Year, Mauricio Pochettino’s team could use a confidence booster at the Etihad.
The draw is 18/5, and with Tottenham’s decent record against City in recent years it could represent decent value. Spurs have won three of their last four against the Blues in the Premier League, drawing the other 2-2 at the Etihad. Another score draw could be on the cards, with 1-1 priced at 35/4 and 2-2 at 15/1.
Sergio Aguero is 3/1 to score the first goal of the game, which he’ll be desperate to do considering he didn’t get on the pitch during the Manchester derby. Missing such an important game would’ve hurt the Argentine, who’s priced at 5/6 to score anytime and 9/2 to score two or more.
Harry Kane is 15/8 to score anytime, which is pretty generous considering the England striker’s in red hot form. He’s already gone past a half century of goals in 2017, and is bearing down on Alan Shearer’s Premier League record of 36 goals in a calendar year, which he set playing for Blackburn in 1995.
