If City manage to avoid defeat against Spurs this weekend then they will have equalled their all-time unbeaten run in the Premier League.
The Blues official betting partner Paddy Power make Roberto Mancini’s side 8/13 favourites to stretch that sequence to 11 this season and 17 overall with Spurs priced at 9/2 and the draw chalked up at 14/5.
Last season’s games between these two attack-minded sides produced 11 goals in total.
The Bosnian international is 11/2 to get the game’s first goal on Sunday or 6/4 to score at anytime.
Roberto Mancini’s side had to do it the hard way in the corresponding home fixture last term giving up a 2-0 before Mario Balotelli secured all three points with a 90th minute penalty that went a long way to bringing the title to the Etihad Stadium.
City to again emerge in front in a five-goal thriller is priced at 18/1 with Paddy Power while French international Samir Nasri to score first – as he did on that occasion - and City to win 3-2 is 80/1 in the online bookmaker’s scorecast betting.
Given the history of goals between the clubs last season Paddy Power also make it 7/2 that ‘over’ 4.5 goals will be scored in the game while exactly five goals in the match is priced at 7/1.
Mancini’s men drew 2-2 in the Champions League against Ajax on Tuesday night when goals from Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero cancelled out the Dutch side’s early lead.
Paddy Power make Toure 9/4 and Aguero even money to score at anytime against Spurs on Sunday while it is 13/8 for a penalty to be awarded in the clash and 4/1 the champions to score from the spot on Sunday.
