Their Premier League struggles aside, Spurs have impressed in the Champions League. After starting with two losses, Tottenham have gone seven matches unbeaten (W5, D2). That includes a run of three games unbeaten on the road (W1, D2). With Hugo Lloris penalty save off Sergio Aguero in the first leg still afresh, the visitors will look to make it a dream scalp by stopping City.

The bet of our experts
Historically, there has been very little to separate these sides. However, recent history suggests that Manchester City have had the sword over Tottenham. This could be a tight encounter, even counting the scoring prowess of the hosts, which means we are in for a low-scoring encounter.
