Manchester City-Tottenham Hostpur Betting Preview: Hosts to edge a high-scoring game

Manuel Pellegrini's men have struggled terribly on their travels this season but our tipster Hugh Wilson is backing them to maintain their perfect home record by beating Spurs
Manchester City host Tottenham this weekend looking to bounce back from a disappointing result at Sunderland before the international break.

With only one place separating the two sides, they will both be looking to get themselves back in the top four as they currently sit in seventh and eighth, respectively.

City have won all five of their home Premier League games this season, beating the likes of Manchester United, Everton and, most recently, Norwich City.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have scored an astonishing 20 goals in those five matches, conceding only two.

Despite this home form, their performances on the road have let them down, which is why they sit outside the top four. Paddy Power price City at 4/6 (1.67) to maintain their 100 per cent record.

Tottenham, like City, are looking to get back to winning ways, after a shock loss at home to Newcastle last time out. Andre Villas-Boas' side were held by Everton before that, with the north Londoners currently going through a sticky patch of form. Paddy Power price them at 4/1 (5.00) to take all three points. The same firm offer the draw at 14/5 (3.80).

Paddy Power have a new customer betting special. If you sign up, you can back the draw or Tottenham at 5/1.

A bet that stands out in this fixture is both teams to score and Manchester City to win at 23/10 (3.30) with Paddy Power.

It's tough to see past City with their exceptional home record this season, and given the attacking nature of the Spurs line-up, you can expect goals from within their squad.

When City have played other top teams at home this season, Manchester United and Everton, this bet paid out in both of those matches and Tottenham look capable of holding up their end of the bargain, especially against a defence missing key man Vincent Kompany.

Existing customers can take advantage of Paddy Power's Money Back Special for this game. If Sergio Aguero scores last they will refund losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast singles on the match.
