Pep Guardiola’s team now has to focus only on the Premier League and FA Cup following the midweek result. Spurs were quite fortunate to come up with one of the three goals, while there was also a lot of controversy about the late disallowed goal from City. Guardiola will be happy that his team put out a strong performance. Spurs do appear weakened without Harry Kane and it is even after witnessing goals from Heung-Min Son. Our preview would go with a victory for City.

Spurs and Manchester City have played out games with over 2.5 goals in all of the last five meetings at the Etihad Stadium.

First Goalscorer odds
Raheem Sterling has come up with a brace in his last two matches for City. Even though Sergio Aguero leads the scoring charts at City with 19 league goals, he has been unable to score against Spurs in the last five years. Sterling, meanwhile, has come up with a goal or an assist in his last three games against the London outfit – including a brace in the midweek game. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Raheem Sterling.
