|Kevin De Bruyne to score first (each way)||@ 11 / 1||P|
City are already eighteen points clear of Spurs after going unbeaten through the opening seventeen games of the season, winning sixteen and drawing one, and they are currently in the midst of a record-setting fifteen-match winning run in the top-flight.
Tottenham can be backed at 9/2 and there have undoubtedly been some massive highs to their campaign, not least the stunning win over Real Madrid in the Champions League, but there have been some huge disappointments too.
Can they rouse themselves for the challenge of taking on the best team in England?
We simply can't back Tottenham to win away at one of the big clubs as as they have won just once on the road at the so-called 'big six' teams since Mauricio Pochettino was appointed manager in May 2014, drawing six and losing ten.
Spurs have already lost at Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester this term, although they can contribute plenty to an entertaining fixture.
Indeed, the past six meetings between this pair at The Etihad have produced 26 goals (4.3 goals per game on average) and all six have gone over 2.5 goals (8/15 with Bet Victor).
We're going to back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals combined at 10/11 with Coral as neither side has looked particularly solid defensively of late, with each of them keeping just two clean sheets in their last eight.
They obviously boast a wealth of attacking talent too as Sergio Aguero is 3/1 to score first after notching ten goals in eleven appearances against Spurs, although he hasn't scored in any of his last four against them.
Instead, Kevin De Bruyne is a stand-out 11/1 to score first (Bet 365) and he has notched two goals and one assist in two previous league outings against Tottenham, while he has opened the scoring on four occasions in all competitions this season.
