After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool, Manchester City will look to regain top position when they face Tottenham on Matchday 14. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and live betting in the English top-flight league.
Man City Can’t Lose at Home
As Manchester City vies for the top spot in the Premier League, they aim to extend their impressive run of results this upcoming Sunday against a seemingly struggling Tottenham side.
With 29 points from their first 13 matches, Manchester City is on another title-chasing mission. They dropped two points last weekend against Liverpool and they are now one point behind leaders Arsenal.
After two Premier League draw games against Chelsea and Liverpool they bounced back beating RB Leipzig 3-2 in the Champions League, where Erling Haaland became the fastest to score 40 Champions League goals with his strike against the German side.
The Citizens seem to be lacking in creativity, with long-term absentee Kevin De Bruyne being sorely missed, but with Norway ace Erling Haaland up front, Pep Guardiola’s troops are still capable of scoring goals, and we will continue to include them in our Premier League bet picks.
All Mateo Kovacic, Matheus Nunes, and aforementioned star De Bruyne remain in the recovery room, while Jack Grealish has overcome his injury. After being rested against RB Leipzig, Nathan Ake, Julian Alvarez, and Jeremy Doku are expected to start against Spurs on Sunday.
Tottenham Hit by Injuries
After leading the standings for 10 rounds, Tottenham enters this clash following three defeats in a row, slipping to fifth in the league standings.
Just not long ago, Ange Postecoglou’s men were top of the league, but the 4-1 defeat to Spurs completely ruined them, not so much because they lost but because they lost key players to injuries and red cards.
They are still without suspended defender Cristian Romero, but midfielder Yves Bissouma is back after serving his one-game ban. All Ivan Perisic, Richarlison, and James Maddison are injured for the capital club.
Next up, Spurs travel to Man City, still without their best centre-back pairing, and it will be very tough for them to keep the Citizens at bay. We still expect them to find the back of the net given their amazing attacking firepower but they should return home empty handed.
City’s Home Record Is Phenomenal
Before the 1-1 draw against Liverpool, City was on a 12-game EPL winning streak, scoring 17 goals in six home games and conceding four.
On the other side, despite losing their previous three games, Tottenham is the best road team this season, losing just one in seven away fixtures and scoring 15 goals.
Premier League betting fans saw the two sides shared the spoils last season, both winning their home games. We’ve seen at least three goals in two of their previous three head-to-heads.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Betting Lines
Manchester City vs Tottenham Soccer Betting Picks for Dec. 3
The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -335 on the moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at 3½.
Man City is probably the best team in Europe and the most consistent one. Pep Guardiola had the opportunity to rest some key players in the Champions League, but they still booked their knock-out stages spot.
Tottenham is missing some of their top players and are struggling at the back with injuries. They are conceding many goals lately but scored in each round this season, so we expect them to do it again.
