Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips - 2nd Feb 2020
Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City Preview
As Jose Mourinho's side host defending champions Manchester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the game promises to be an exciting affair as two top-six sides go head to head. While the Cityzens are resigned to losing the league title to Liverpool, they will be keen to consolidate second spot in the league standings and give a good account of themselves, after drawing the reverse fixture 2-2 at the Etihad Stadium.
Spurs, on the other hand, have blown hot and cold under Mourinho and will look to get a result to kick start their season, with the hope of making a late push for a UEFA Champions League spot. New signing Steven Bergwijn could be set to feature for the home side after swapping the Eredivisie for the Premier League and the Dutchman could be one of the players to watch out for.

While Manchester City have been fantastic in their travels this season, they've also conceded 15 goals in 12 away games this season and the trend looks set to continue this time around. Spurs could score, but the Cityzens have enough in their locker to overpower and outscore them. The reigning Premier League champions are expected to record yet another victory in North London, making it 6 wins on the bounce in this part of the world.
Harry Kane's absence could compound Spurs' misery, as their talisman is expected to miss the rest of the season with a long-term injury.
