Sunday’s Premier League matchup between Manchester City and Tottenham is crucial for both teams.

City, currently in second place, cannot afford to drop points, as they are five points behind league leaders Arsenal, and the Gunners have played one fewer match.

For fifth-place Tottenham, a loss or draw would likely put them further behind fourth-place Manchester United, making the path to a spot in the 2023-24 Champions League that much more uphill.

This game also deserves your attention based on what these teams delivered when they met on Jan. 19: six total goals in a shocking comeback by Pep Guardiola’s team, which trailed 2-0 at home at halftime before exploding for four second-half goals and a memorable 4-2 win.

Manchester City Roster, Injuries, and Betting News

While City are currently behind Arsenal in the Premier League table, they remain easily the deepest team in the league — if not all of Europe. A look at the players who didn’t start when these two teams met in January pretty much sums it up: City’s options on the bench that day included Kyle Walker, Ruben Dias, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, and Phil Foden — all of whom are legitimate stars.

This year, however, all that firepower, which includes runaway Golden Boot favorite Erling Haaland, has not translated to consistent dominance. Man City have captured 45 of 60 possible points through 20 matches.

But we’ve seen how high this club’s ceiling is in recent weeks; following the 4-2 win over Spurs on Jan. 19, Haaland had a hat trick in 54 minutes against Wolves, as City won 3-0.

Roster

City enter Sunday’s match on a three-game winning streak that includes last Friday’s FA Cup 4th round win over Arsenal. Given their recent form and the long break since their last match, City have to enter the trip to Spurs with a ton of confidence; Pep Guardiola’s 0-4 record in all competitions in visits to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium be damned.

Injuries

Guardiola revealed on Friday that center back John Stones will be out for multiple weeks, but the team will get a boost from the return of Foden this weekend.

Tottenham Roster, Injuries, and Betting News

With a record of 11-3-7 through 21 matches, Tottenham are not off to a great start to the season, but they’re still very much alive in the battle for an all-important fourth-place finish. They don’t have much room for error, though, as ManU have three more points than Spurs despite having played one fewer match. Another concern for Tottenham is their recent form in league play; they’ve lost three of their last five, including two of their last three.

But they are winners of their last two after beating Fulham 1-0 on Jan. 23 and blowing out Preston in the FA Cup 4th Round last weekend.

Roster

Tottenham are led by their veteran stars up front, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, and they just bolstered their attack by signing winger Arnaut Danjuma on loan from Villarreal.

Spurs have scored the third-most goals in the league, behind City and Arsenal, but they must play better defense to stay in the top-four hunt — the 31 goals they’ve allowed are the most of any team in the top 12 in the EPL table.

Antonio Conte’s team has, however, defended better lately, with four shutouts in its last six matches. It’s worth noting, though, that those were against Crystal Palace, Fulham, and FA Cup opponents Portsmouth and Preston.

Injuries

Tottenham will welcome back Richarlison this weekend after he missed his team’s FA Cup win last week, and Spurs will also get a boost from the return of Lucas Moura, who has not played since the World Cup.

With those two once again available, Tottenham assistant manager Cristian Stellini — who is filling in as manager with Conte out following surgery this week to remove his gallbladder — will have a full-strength team sheet.

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Prediction: City 2, Spurs 1

While Tottenham’s track record of success at their new home against Manchester City is notable, it’s hard to trust Tottenham’s defense against the likes of Haaland, Riyad Mahrez, and whoever else City will throw at them.

Spurs will keep this close thanks to the home crowd, but they’re outgunned in this matchup. A narrow victory for Man City feels like the most likely outcome, though Tottenham Draw No Bet (+230) does offer solid value for anyone bullish on Spurs’ homefield advantage.

Here are two bets available at DraftKings that are worth checking out:

  • Both Teams To Score No Draw: Yes (+130)
  • Man City Win, Over 1.5 Parlay (+105)
