Why Tottenham could beat Manchester City

Ahead of the match, a number of stats have emerged highlighting why Tottenham could beat Manchester City:

  • Manchester City have lost two of their past 13 Premier League home games against Tottenham (W9 D2).
  • Spurs have won five of their past seven Premier League games against City(L2), more than they had in their previous 19 against them (W4 D3 L12).
  • Since Pep Guardiola joined the club in 2016, Manchester City have lost more top-flight games to Spurs than they have any other opponent (six), while against no side have they conceded more goals (19 - level with Liverpool).
  • Dejan Kulusevski has scored for Tottenham away at Etihad Stadium in the past two seasons. The only player in Premier League history to score away against the reigning champions in three consecutive campaigns is Danny Murphy, who did so in four between 2000/01 and 2003/04.
