  • Tottenham have averaged 2.37 goals per game in the Premier League this season.

  • Man City haven’t lost for nine games in all competitions
  • Son Heung-min scored four times in his last four appearances against City.

Spurs targeting top spot

Amid talk of possible title tilts in North London, Tottenham Hotspur face a huge test of their lofty aspirations on Saturday when they take on a Manchester City team determined to put themselves back in the mix near the top end of the table.

Saturday’s heavyweight showdown pits old adversaries Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola against each other from opposing dugouts, though the Citizens’ boss – who came out on top in 11 and lost just six of his 23 previous meetings with Mourinho will feel he has the edge ahead of their latest face-off.

Armed with a seven-league match unbeaten run and powered by the performances of dynamic duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, Spurs head into the weekend’s face-off from a position of strength however, and City will have to be at their best to deliver a telling blow.

City need more wins

Man City, currently residing in 10th place, find themselves in unfamiliar territory ahead of their trip to the capital, thanks to a return of just three wins from seven games in the opening exchanges of the new Premier League campaign.

With six wins and three draws from nine games in all competitions, the Citizens had started to find a more familiar flow in the run up to the international break however, though they missed a huge opportunity to put a real marker down following a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool in their most recent outing.

A win at Spurs would push City back to within swinging distance of the Premier League summit however, and the dethroned former champions will be going all out to gather the points they need this weekend.

Goals likely in North London

Both Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will feel their star-studded teams wield the attacking weaponry to outscore the other on Saturday, and that should ensure supporters are treated to a gripping end-to-ender in London.

With the aforementioned Kane and Son supplying a superb 15 goals between them, Spurs have averaged a net-shredding 2.37 goals per 90 minutes of Premier League action so far this season, while Man City will land in the capital having averaged just under 2.0 goals per game since the end of September.

The last seven Premier League head-to-heads between Spurs and City produced a meaty 21 goals, and with so much stardust on show this weekend, we’re expecting more excitement when these title hopefuls lock horns again.

In what promises to be a real ding-dong title tussle, the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score market jumps out at a price worth backing, while our correct score prediction tips the teams to share the spoils in a 2-2 draw.

With just one defeat between them in a combined 23 fixtures before the international break, Tottenham and Man City both have momentum to draw from, and the big-hitters could cancel each other out come full time.

Spurs scored twice against City when they last played and beat the Citizens 2-0 back in February at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, though the 10-man Manchester giants racked up an incredible 19 attempts without finding the net.

The teams were locked at 2-2 when they traded blows in their reverse fixture last term in a contest that was a fairer reflection of the underlying numbers, and the evidence suggests a similar outcome is possible when they renew acquaintances on Saturday.

Anytime goalscorer tip: Son Heung-min

Spurs forward Son Heung-min scored four times in his last four appearances against Man City, and the flying South Korean attacker has developed a real penchant for producing the goods against the Citizens.

With eight goals in eight Premier League appearances this season, Son has confidence to burn and the 28-year-old should provide plenty of threat against City again.

Tottenham Hotspur injuries and team news

Matt Doherty tested positive for COVID-19 on international duty and will miss the City game, while Erik Lamela, Japhet Tanganga and Tanguy Ndombele are all nursing injuries and could miss out.

Serge Aurier is in line to start at right-back in Doherty’s absence.

Manchester City injuries and team news

Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero will almost certainly be sidelined again this weekend, while there are also various concerns over Oleksandr Zinchenko, Benjamin Mendy, Raheem Sterling and Nathan Ake.

Ferran Torres and Phil Foden both enjoyed productive international breaks and will be pushing to start in London.
