  • 16 of the last 24 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS (all comps)
  • Both teams DIDN’T score in 7 of the last 10 head-to-heads

They only recently played (Jan 19th) and despite Spurs leading Manchester City at halftime 2-0, the current Premier League champions kicked in the afterburners in the second period to score four goals and complete a remarkable comeback.

However, all is not lost for Spurs, who are still hunting a ‘top four’ finish as despite that last result the London side have a decent record over City – including winning this fixture 1-0 last season.

In fact, Spurs have also won 5 of their last 7 home games vs City and have won this repeat clash for the last three seasons.

The match betting ahead of the game sees City on offer at 7/10, the Draw 3/1 and Spurs at 18/5 despite having home advantage.

It’s normally a clash that sees goals too – with 16 of the last 24 going OVER 2.5 GOALS, which can be backed at 8/13.

However, despite the goals, goals, goals shout, we’ve actually seen 70% of the last 10 head-to-heads see both teams scoring (No) – which can be backed at 6/5.

The scoring markets for City will be dominated by Erling Haaland as always and he scored in the recent head-to-head too, while Riyad Mahrez has also liked playing against Spurs – he’s netted 3 goals in the last 2 head-to-heads

Haaland is on offer at 13/5 (1st) or 4/5 (anytime), with Mahrez at 15/2 (1st) or 5/2 (anytime).

The Spurs scorers see Harry Kane at 5/1 to get the game’s opening goal or 13/8 just to score.

Overall, you feel that it’s a game that both sides will want to win – City are chasing Arsenal and can’t afford to lose much more ground on the Gunners, while Spurs are in the top four race, but are sitting 5th at the moment, so also can’t allow the four sides ahead of them much more rope.

Another cracking game to look forward to but the call is to stick with goals again and go Over 2.5 Goals at 8/13 – a bet that has easily paid out in the last two clashes with 11 goals in total scored (average 5.5 per game).
