            Tottenham vs Manchester City: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

            Tottenham welcomes Manchester City to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Friday for the blockbuster all-Premier League Fourth Round FA Cup clash. Both sides sit in the top spots of the Premier League but will be looking for even more success in the FA Cup.

            These odds are accurate at the time of publication, they are subject to change.

            Before Manchester City can get back to hunting down Liverpool for the top spot in the Premier League, they take on Tottenham in the FA Cup, at a stadium where they have some notorious bad luck. Tottenham, on the other hand, will be looking for a big win on the quest for a piece of silverware.

            Tottenham currently sit fifth in the Premier League after 21 games. Spurs have 12 wins, four draws and five losses, leaving them on 40 points, three points from the final Champions League spot and eight points from top-of-the-table Liverpool.

            Spurs are one of the most successful sides in the FA Cup, with six wins to their name. However, Tottenham have failed to even make a Final since their last win in 1991. In fact, the furthest they have reached since that Final appearance is the Semi-Finals where they have lost to Arsenal twice, Portsmouth, Manchester United and Chelsea twice.

            Manchester City, on the other hand, currently sit second in the Premier League. In 20 games, City have 13 wins, four draws and three losses which leaves them on 43 points, equal with Arsenal and Aston Villa and five points behind Liverpool with a game in hand.

            City have also won the FA Cup on six occasions, their first win coming in the fourth season of the competition in 1934 against Portsmouth and their most recent coming in 2023 against Manchester United. Since 2010, City have won the Cup three times and have made four Final appearances.

            Tottenham and Manchester City have met 169 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1909. The two sides can’t be separated by anything, with 66 wins each and the other 37 games ending in a draw.

            This fixture has two moods, either a 1 - 0 win or a goalfest. In the last six games between the two, there have been three 1 - 0 wins, two Tottenham wins and one City win. The other three games have all seen at least five goals, a 3 - 2 win for Tottenham, a 4 - 2 win for City and a 3 - 3 draw.

            Form Guide

            In their last five games in all competitions, Tottenham have three wins, one draw and one loss.

            Richarlison opened the scoring in the ninth minute against his old team and Son doubled Tottenham’s lead before halftime. Andre Gomes gave Everton a life line in the last ten minutes, but The Toffees couldn’t find the back of the net and Tottenham held on for the 2 - 1 win.

            The trip to Brighton next time out was one to forget for Tottenham. Jack Hinshelwood gave Brighton the early lead and Joao Pedro’s first penalty doubled Brighton’s lead before halftime. A goal from Pervis Estupinan and Pedro’s second penalty gave Brighton a comfortable 4 - 0 lead, as Veliz and Davies both grabbed a goal in Tottenham’s 4 - 2 loss.

            Tottenham bounced back against Bournemouth. Sarr grabbed the opening goal in the ninth minute and Son and Richarlison added to the scoreline in the second half. Alex Scott did get on the scoresheet late on for Bournemouth but it wasn’t enough as Tottenham secured the 3 - 1 win.

            In the FA Cup Third Round, Tottenham hosted fellow Premier League side Burnley. A stunning goal from Pedro Porro was the only goal of the game in the 1 - 0 win over Tottenham over a Burnley side who could only manage one shot on target.

            The last time out for Tottenham was against Manchester United. Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring in the third minute but Richarlison pulled Spurs level 15 minutes later. However, a goal from Marcus Rashford gave United the 2 - 1 lead going into halftime. Just a minute into the second half Rodrigo Bentancur found the back of the net for a 2 - 2 draw.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Man City have five wins.

            In the FIFA Club World Cup Final, Man City took on Fluminense. Julian Alvarez scored in the first minute and an own goal from Nino gave City the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Foden found the back of the net in the second half and Alvarez completed his brace for a 4 - 0 win.

            Back in the Premier League, Man City faced Everton. The Toffees took a 1 - 0 lead into halftime due to a goal from Jack Harrison. However, goals from Foden, Alvarez and Bernardo Silva gave City the 3 - 1 win.

            Rodri and Alvarez were on the scoresheet as City beat Sheffield United 2 - 0, registering an impressive 81% of the possession.

            In the Third Round of the FA Cup, City hosted Championship Huddersfield. A brace from Foden, goals from Alvarez and Jeremy Doku and an own goal from Ben Jackson gave City the 5 - 0, this time with 84% of the possession.

            The most recent outing for City was against Newcastle. Silva gave City the lead with a backheel goal but quickfire goals from Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon gave Newcastle the 2 - 1 lead at halftime. However, a goal from a returning Kevin De Bruyne and an extra-time goal from Oscar Bobb gave City the 3 - 2 win.
