Manchester City take on Tottenham at the Etihad on Saturday lunchtime in the third meeting between the two sides in the past month.
City were sensationally dumped out of the Champions League by Spurs in a pulsating encounter in Manchester on Wednesday which saw the Lilywhites lose 4-3 on the night but go through to the semi-finals on away goals.
Raheem Sterling had a last-minute goal ruled out by VAR following an offside call as the quadruple continues to evade Pep Guardiola‘s team.
They now take each other on in the Premier League with City needing to hold off the challenge of Liverpool in the title race, while Tottenham are still scrapping for a top-four finish.
City do have a good record against the North Londoners in the top flight – having won the last 3 matches – while Spurs have failed to win in their last eight visits to the Etihad.
The defending Premier League champions are priced at 2/7 to beat Spurs while Mauricio Pochettino‘s side are 8/1 to cause another upset against Guardiola’s men.
The home team could do with Sergio Aguero back at full fitness as he has been suffering with niggling injuries over the past few weeks.
The Argentina star will become only the second player in Premier League history to score 20 goals or more in five consecutive seasons – Thierry Henry having done so between 01-02 and 05-06 – if he scores one against Tottenham on Saturday.
His scoring record against Spurs has been poor of late – failing to score in his past six after scoring ten in his first seven – but he can be backed at 8/11 to end that drought.
The game promises to be one full of attacking vigour and verve reflected by the styles of play adopted by the two sides, and while it might not prove to be as thrilling as Wednesday, goals are expected – with 11/5 the price for over 4.5.
