City are favored to win this one, and it’s not a huge surprise given how well they’ve played this season even with a few stumbles. They’ve lost two of their last five matches, with the most recent a 2-1 loss to their crosstown rivals Manchester United last weekend. It was Erling Haaland’s second straight EPL match without a goal as the striker sits on 21 goals through 17 matches this season.
Tottenham have now lost two of their last three outings, dropping results to Arsenal and Aston Villa as they’ve found themselves tumbling down the table throughout the last few weeks. They’re now in fifth with 33 points, just five behind fourth-place Newcastle. Harry Kane leads the team with 15 goals in league play, scoring three of those since the restart after the World Cup break.
Tottenham have won the last two meetings between the sides, but Man City has been exceptional this season and should be able to take all three points against the struggling Spurs at home.
