Tottenham Hotspur - Manchester City Betting Preview: Negredo to continue his hot streak

Manuel Pellegrini takes his side to North London looking to continue their 19 game unbeaten run with our tipster backing their Spanish striker to grab the headlines
Manchester City are currently on a sensational run, which has seen them win 13 of their last 14 matches. They face Tottenham Hotspur tonight looking to take advantage of Arsenal's draw at Southampton yesterday.

Pellegrini's side have the chance to jump above the Gunners into top spot if they win tonight. Last time out they overcame a tough test against Watford in the FA Cup to eventually run out 4-2 winners. With 24 goals scored in their last six matches, the visitors are on fire at the moment. bet365 price them at even money (2.00) to make it seven straight wins in a row.

Tottenham themselves have looked solid in recent weeks, finding some form under new manager Tim Sherwood.

Spurs are unbeaten in their last six league matches, winning five of those games. With a weekend off due to being out of the FA Cup, Sherwood's side come into this fixture fresh. bet365 price them at 29/10 (3.90) to take all three points. The same firm price the draw at 11/4 (3.75).

With City scoring form fun at the moment, it may have been worth backing the visitors to score at least two goals in the match, but at 8/11 (1.73), the price doesn't stand out with bet365.

With Sergio Aguero recently returning to action after a spell on the side lines due to injury, the Argentinian has got right back in the goals, netting six goals in his four matches. The price of him netting anytime at 4/5 (1.80) is tempting, but it's worth looking elsewhere to find a better price.

With Aguero missing for a number of weeks, Alvaro Negredo stood up and easily filled his boots. The Spanish striker has scored nine goals in his last six matches, and with Pellegrini resting him at the weekend, it's worth taking advantage of the 20/21 (1.95) price of him to score anytime.

Alvaro Negredo to score anytime at 20/21 (1.95) for 1.5pts with bet365
