Phil Thompson might be going against the grain here, but he thinks Tottenham might put on a relatively good show against Manchester City in Saturday’s late Premier League match. City are on one of their unstoppable runs while Spurs have lost three on the bounce in the top flight.


And it’s that contrasting form that means Spurs are likely to pull the shutters down from the off. There’s still only one winner for Paddy Power ambassador Thommo, but what are his three best Man City v Spurs tips? There’s only one way to find out.

Saturday 5.30pm: Manchester City v Tottenham

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

It’s amazing because this is probably one of the biggest games in the calendar for Manchester City, you know. It’s Spurs, Arsenal, Liverpool and the Manchester United games.

Spurs have lost the last three Premier League games and before that, if you had gone back a few weeks ago, this may have felt a little bit closer. You just feel as though Spurs are drifting at the moment because, before these three games, Spurs were on a nine-game unbeaten run.

Do you know something? Antonio Conte has never lost four league games on the trot. That’s quite interesting. Can he turn it around? That is across his whole managerial career but they’ve won only three of their last nine away Premier League games.

So, this is very much pointing to Manchester City. You can rattle off all their highlights; best defence, best goal scorers… They’ve scored 98 so they’re nearly at a ton in goals in all competitions this season!

You can’t see any further than Manchester City to win it’s just a case of what score. I’m going for Manchester City to Win to Nil and I’m going for City to Win 2-0.

In terms of a goal scorer it’s got to be Riyad Mahrez. He’s got nine goals in nine games which is a fantastic return. It’s got to be Mahrez to Score Anytime.
