Following one of the most devastating weekends in Premier League history, the action must still go ahead on Monday night. Two top-flight heavyweights clash as Manchester City make the trip to the capital to face Tottenham.
Tottenham will take confidence from their recent record against Man City, which is better than most other teams in the Premier League. Of the last five meetings, both teams have come out on top twice with a draw coming in January 2017. Although, the Citizens did win both fixtures last term with a convincing 3-1 win at Wembley one of the highlights of a fantastic campaign. There have been over 2.5 goals in five of the last six matches with both teams scoring in each of those.
Three points for Spurs will take them 3rd in the league but they are likely to be without Danny Rose and Dele Alli as well as Jan Vertonghen. They have coped with those absentees in recent weeks, they’ll be hoping to do the same again.

Man City will return to the Premier League summit with a win and they only have Danilo and Ilkay Gundogan out of action, whom can both be replaced.

Despite having home advantage, Tottenham go into this one as underdogs against the strongest side in recent top-flight history. However, I’d expect both teams to score which could be the best tip for the match. Based on both thoughts, Man City to win and both teams to score seems like a smart bet.
