The Citizens have been lethal in front of goal as they have clinical strikers to convert their chances. Tottenham have also been clinical in front of goal as they have scored the third most goals in the league (37). I predict over 2.5 goals.
Erling Haaland has been the best player in the league this season as he can't stop scoring. The Norwegian international is the highest goalscorer in the league with 21 goals, overperforming his expected goals of 12.97. Haaland will be looking to get back on the scoresheet after failing to score in four consecutive games. I predict Haaland will score anytime.
