However, Mourinho could only win two of his ten compulsory home games against a Guardiola-trained eleven (2-3-5). In April 2010 Mourinho won Inter 3-1 against Pep’s Barca. In October 2016, Jose celebrated a 1-0 home win in the Manchester Derby.
The Catalan Guardiola is unbeaten in away league games against their eternal coaching rivals (3-1-0). Only against Manuel Pellegrini (six) and Unai Emery (five) did the current Manchester City coach (2nd place, 51 points) play more games in the league without losing.
On paper, the game seems to be a clear matter for the guests. This underpins the odds of the betting providers between Tottenham and Manchester City. The Spurs are 17 points behind the defending champion. This means that the gap to the Citizens is just as great as the lead over the last table in Norwich City.
Tottenham – Statistics & current form
With Christian Eriksen (to Inter Milan) and Danny Rose (to Newcastle), the Spurs made two players who should have left the clubs six months ago. Kyle Walker-Peters is said to be collecting game practice in Southampton.
Steven Bergwijn is new. The Dutchman moves from Eindhoven to the English capital for £ 27m. In 22 appearances, the 22-year-old scored 31 times and won three championships with PSV. The Spurs are currently light years away from such titles.
At home, the Londoners recently suffered two losses in six games under Mourinho (4-0-2). Previously, Mauricio Pochettino’s last 15 home games were also four bankruptcies (9-4-4). The 2-1 home win over Norwich ended Tottenham’s losing streak of four league encounters without a win. Now there is an opportunity to win two matches in a row. The last time this happened was in early December (Burnley, Wolves).
Tottenham often got good performances at home against top teams. Most recently against Liverpool. Accordingly, Tottenham advises against Manchester City our prediction on the double chance (1X).
68 percent of the points were won at home this season (23 out of 34). Only Norwich (71 percent) and Everton (70 percent) have a higher percentage. Tottenham have only played twice in the last 19 Premier League games. During this period, the Lilywhites scored only one hit more (27) than they received (26).
Dele Alle was directly involved in nine goals in six competitive games under Jose Mourinho (six goals, three assists). Under Pochettino there were three goals in ten matches. Harry Kane, Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko are missing injured.
Best scorers in the Premier League:
🏆 11 goals: Harry Kane
🏆 7 goals: Dele Alli
🏆 6 goals Heung-min Son
Probable lineups of Tottenham:
↪ Lloris, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Aurier; Celso, Winks, Alli; Moura, Son

Manchester City – Statistics & current form
The fans could not be really happy about entering the League Cup final, because the semi-final second leg was lost 0-1 against arch-rival Man United. The probably worst United team in Premier League history has won twice this season at Etihad Stadium.
No fame sheet for Guardiola. Neither is the 19-point deficit in the Premier League for leaders Liverpool. The defending champion has not been an issue for weeks. Should Pep not win the Champions League, it should be uncomfortable for him, despite the two recent record seasons.
In North London, Man City has recently celebrated five consecutive Premier League away wins (against Arsenal and Tottenham). Before that, 40 games were necessary (5-10-25). How times have changed. Once again, the skyblues are the clear favorite. At Tottenham vs Manchester City, this clearly underlines the odds of all betting providers.
The defending champion has scored in each of the last 23 away league games. Only Arsenal (November 27, 2002) and Man United (August 24, 2002) have had even longer series in the past. The Citizens stayed away goalless for the last time in December 2018 (0-2 at Chelsea).
Skyblues also won six of their last eight Premier League games (6-1-1). The only bankruptcy was against Wolverhampton in December when the Guardiola squad had to outnumber for a long time. The reigning champions could win three away games in a row for the first time this season and play twice in a row for the first time since October in a foreign game.
However, the Skyblues have already suffered three bankruptcies and thus suffered as many losses as in the entire pre-season. Sergio Agüero has scored twelve competitive goals against Tottenham so far. Only against Newcastle (15) and Chelsea (13) was the Argentine more successful in English football.
Best scorers in the Premier League:
🏆 16 goals: Sergio Agüero
🏆 11 goals: Raheem Sterling
🏆 9 gates: Gabriel Jesus
Probable lineup of Manchester City:
↪ Ederson; Mendy, Fernandinho, Laporte, Walker; Rodrigo, de Bruyne, B.Silva; Sterling, Agüero, Mahrez
↪ Coach: Guardiola
Last games from Manchester City:
⚽️ 01/29/2020 – Manchester City vs. Manchester United 0-1 (League Cup)
⚽️ 01/26/2020 – Manchester City vs. Fulham 4-0 (FA Cup)
⚽️ 01/21/2020 – Sheffield United vs. Manchester City 0-1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/18/2020 – Manchester City vs. Crystal Palace 2-2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/12/2020 – Aston Villa vs. Manchester City 1: 6 (Premier League)

Tottenham vs Manchester City Free Betting Tips by CoreBet Tipsters
The duels between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are always special games. However, the explosiveness of days past has long been lacking. This encounter is of course no longer a decisive factor in the title race.
According to the bookmakers, the winner seems to be watching hard before the kick-off. At least the odds convey this appearance at Tottenham against Manchester City.
Key facts – Tottenham vs Manchester City tips
💫 Tottenham scored 68 percent of the points at home (23 out of 34)
💫 Man City have won six of their last eight league games (6-1-1)
💫 Tottenham has been without a win for six Premier League matches against Man City (0-2-4)
However, we expect an open match. The Spurs sold well against Liverpool at home and would have earned at least one point. Man City is no longer the unstoppable machine of the previous season. Therefore, between Tottenham and Manchester City our prediction sees double chance (1X) as good chances of success.
Mourinho will try his luck in a compact defensive and counterattack. Wolverhampton was able to defeat the defending champion a few weeks ago.
