Man City can hit the goal trail again at White Hart Lane
After three wins in a row and six undefeated since their opening-day reverse at Manchester United, Tottenham’s run came to end in the Capital One Cup North London derby against Arsenal on Wednesday and they must now pick themselves up for the visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Man City had won their first five in the league without conceding a goal, prompting early odds for them to go through the season undefeated. But defeat by Juventus in their Champions League opener must have affected confidence because they then lost at home to West Ham though, ironically, the Hammers are specialising in bursting bubbles this season.
However, a cup game at struggling Sunderland during the week was a perfect opportunity to restore any lost self-belief and the Sky Blues didn’t disappoint, racking up four goals in the opening 36 minutes to spark yet another half-time exit from disgruntled home fans.
The Londoners are still waiting for last season’s top scorer Harry Kane to find the net but South Korean Son Heung-Min has scored three in three and will be keen to test himself against the current title favourites.
Son is likely to return to the starting line-up this Saturday, along with Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen, but Spurs have only managed one win in their last 10 against City and may not fare any better this time, even though the visitors could again be without first-choice centre-backs Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala. Man City are 10/11 in our Full Time Result market and 23/10 conceding a goal start on the Handicap.
The match kicks off at 12.45pm on Saturday, September 26th at White Hart Lane
