Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City Betting Tips
It’s another round of the heavyweight fight between Mourinho and Guardiola, as Spurs host Manchester City this weekend. In the 22 matches between these two, Guardiola has come out on top 11 times, with Mourinho winning just 5. It will be tough for Jose to close that gap considering the injuries that Spurs have coming into this game. City haven’t looked convincing recently however, but they do keep finding a way to win and keep up a very unlikely title challenge.

Tottenham’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Spurs
During FA Cup weekend, Spurs added an unneeded extra game to their fixture list with a 1-1 draw away at Southampton. Both sides put out a full strength side, with new signing Gedson Fernandes making his debut for Spurs. There were plenty of chances across the pitch and neither defence looked capable of dealing with the opposing attack. Despite all the chances, Spurs headed into the break level at 0-0. After the break however, Heung Min Son benefitted from a defensive error to fire a low shot into the bottom corner. The goal seemed to wake Southampton up though, rather than give Spurs control of the game. Danny Ings came close a few times, but it was Sofiane Boufal who came up with the late equaliser. The late equaliser is a sign of Spurs’ defensive problems. They’ve only kept 1 clean sheet since the 7th December and it would be a surprise if they made that 2 when they face Man City.
Manchester City’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Man City
City comfortably made their way to the FA Cup Fifth Round with a 4-0 win over Fulham. It took just 6 minutes for the tie to be all but over, when Tim Ream was sent off for dragging down Gabriel Jesus in the box. Ilkay Gundogan dispatched the penalty and City were in cruise control from there. Bernardo Silva doubled the lead with a long range effort on 19 minutes and it became a case of damage limitation for Fulham. It took over 50 minutes for City to extend their lead however. That moment finally came from Gabriel Jesus, who headed in a Joao Cancelo cross. 3 minutes later, Jesus got his second, this time heading into the net following a rebound. It was the 7th time that City had scored 4 or more goals in a game this season, and they look like they could score as many as they want on a given day.
Where’s The Value Bet?
Sergio Aguero is one of the most prolific strikers English football has ever seen. He has scored against almost every side that he has faced. But, there are only two teams that he has scored more goals against than Tottenham. In 17 games against Spurs, Aguero has racked up 12 goals, a stat that looks impressive at any level. After a few weeks out of the side, Aguero has recently returned to the starting lineup and looks like he is picking up exactly where he left off. In his last 4 games, Aguero has scored 7 goals and has an incredible record of a goal every 69 minutes throughout the season. Given his record this season, and his record against Spurs, 12/5 for Aguero to open the scoring looks like favourable odds.

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tips
It’s tough to predict an actual score in this one, but one thing seems for sure - there will be goals. Jose Mourinho can’t seem to set Spurs up in a way that looks convincing, and Guardiola will always set City up to attack, attack, attack.
