Man City vs Spurs preview

City and Spurs meet this Thursday, both fresh off the back of derby heartache last weekend.

Jack Grealish’s instant impact off the bench looked to set to hand the Citizens yet another win over Manchester United, before the Reds turned it around to win 2-1.

City could go into this one in third spot, with United playing Crystal Palace 24 hours earlier.

Worse, though, is they sit eight points behind leaders Arsenal heading into the clash with their North London rivals.

That’s because of Spurs’ dreadful showing in the derby on Sunday, a match in which they were completely dominated by the Gunners.

Antonio Conte’s men badly need a response as they now sit five points behind Newcastle in the top four race.

But they have beaten City in their previous two meetings – and have in fact won four of the past six encounters.

City have dominated on average across the season

Man City vs Spurs form

As mentioned, Spurs have beaten City in four of their last six meetings.

That includes a double in the Premier League last year.

City recently beat the North Londoners in the League Cup final in 2021.

But Spurs have certainly had the upper hand in the league in the past few years.

A Harry Kane double and Dejan Kulusevski goal was enough to beat the hosts at the Etihad in their last meeting – with Kane’s second the 95th minute after Riyad Mahrez equalised from the spot earlier in stoppage time.

Team News

Manchester City

It’s never easy trying to predict a Pep Guardiola line-up, though we do know that Ruben Dias and John Stones are both again likely to miss out here.

Jack Grealish is pushing for a starting spot after his impact from the bench at the weekend at the expense of a largely ineffective Phil Foden.

Ilkay Gundogan could push to return, with Aymeric Laporte also potentially making a return to the heart of the City defence.

Erling Haaland will lead the line and look to end his two-game drought without a goal.

A potential Man City team to face Spurs


Dejan Kulusevski’s return was about the only positive for Spurs in their defeat to Arsenal.

He should keep his spot, with Richarlison – hopefully a bit calmer – likely to start from the bench again.

Rodrigo Bentancur is reportedly fit and ready to return to the midfield again after his injury absence.

Hugo Lloris will no doubt keep his place in goal despite yet another howler on Sunday

Spurs will likely sit in and play on the break

SunSport tips

Riyad Mahrez to score 1st

Boosted to 11/2 with Paddy Power – CLAIM HERE

Mahrez is enjoying an extended stay in the Man City side at the minute.

He has three goals in his last three appearances, despite a blank at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Bukayo Saka had an immeasurable amount of joy attacking down the Spurs left on Sunday and Mahrez could do likewise here.

The price with Paddy Power makes this look a sound bet.

Man City to win & BTTS

7/4 with William Hill – CLAIM HERE

Spurs might’ve conquered City in their last two meetings, but City look to have a bit too much for them.

The only saving grace for Spurs is they have Harry Kane up top.

He’ll fashion his own chances if he has to and is just two shy of 200 Premier League goals.

City have conceded at home to Fulham, Brentford (x2), Liverpool (x2) and Everton in their last six home games, so they can be got at.

Spurs have faced more shots against them than they’ve taken on average

What the managers have said

The two managers generally have some good answers previewing their next games.

Not just that, but they’ll be questioned on the debriefs from the weekend’s defeats too.

With injury news also key, we’ll have the best of what they have to say closer to the game.
