After a fantastic beginning to the season and the league leader position after ten league rounds, Tottenham had a few struggling matches in November and December. Still, Ange Postecoglou's team lately returned on the right track and started playing better, so they established themself as one of the teams that should, at least, fight for the Champions League spot. Tottenham lost only one of the last seven matches in all competitions. In the previous game, they played 2-2 on the road against Manchester United. Guests were a better side in that one, but eventually, Postecoglou's team took home only one point. Tottenham are playing well lately, but on Friday, they will welcome Manchester City in another tough game. 

Manchester City are five points behind the Premier League leader, Liverpool (with one game fewer played). Still, the season is far from over and Pep Guardiola's team hopes to win another title. Manchester City have had an impressive run lately with six wins in six matches. In the previous game, they won 3-2 on the road against Newcastle. Guests had xG of 3.27, while the home side had 1.15, but that win was far from easy as Oscar Bobb scored the game-winning goal in the second half's stoppage time. 

Tottenham vs Manchester City pick: Over 3.5 goals

Tottenham scored 16 goals in the last seven matches. On the other hand, Manchester City scored 25 goals in the previous eight games. Over 3.5 goals should be the best bet for the game of these two high-scoring teams.
