Edin to the top

Man City will fancy their chances of another three points against a Tottenham side that were comfortably beaten by United in their sole Premier League start this season.

Their opening match against Everton was called-off after the riots in North London, there has been the will he/ won't he transfer saga about Adebayor and there has been murmurs of discontent about their star player Modric.

Chelsea have had two bids for the midfielder rejected and he was left-out of the team against United. The Blues have just signed Mata from Valencia and they may not come in for the Croatian again.

Spurs to win at home is 2/1, the draw is 9/4 and an away win is 11/8. Spurs have signed Adebayor on-loan from City during the week but he is ineligible to play against his parent club.

City have a wealth of talent that could play, they may start Nasri after his move from Arsenal and it looks likely that they will play Aguero and Dzeko up-front. They will be able to call upon the want-away striker Tevez from the bench and the Italian international Balotelli.

There have only been two goals in the last three matches between City and Spur. That can change on Sunday, over 2.5 goals is 4/5 and it will be end to end football. Spurs will fancy their chances at home and they will attack City.

City can be mesmerising on the break but they will need to contain Modric. The Croatian is 16/1 to score first and the Spurs' fans will be hoping that he is now focussed on his job at Tottenham.

The sides have been rivals for a Champions League spot over the last two campaigns and the football may be pretty but it could be a heated affair. It is 15/4 for a red card being shown and if Man City are not getting their way, they could end the game with ten men.

If they are serious about winning the league, they will need to head to Tottenham and attack, with the idea of taking all three points. Man City have made some cracking signings this season and they should be too strong for Tottenham.

Man City/Man City is 3/1 in the double results market and they could rip Spurs apart. Spurs look like they are in a massive fight to achieve fourth position and they need to make some cracking signings before the transfer window closes.

The Spurs defence will need to cope with Dzeko. He looked average last season and he can score first at 15/2, he is been out of the spotlight at City and he was fantastic against Bolton.  City have started playing with more width and he can make the most of better service.

City's football was not always pretty last season but the style of play has changed and Mancini has brought a new attacking mentality to the club. With Nasri and Silva pulling the strings and the full-backs like Micah Richards running at the opposition, they can finish Tottenham off with ease.

City are 13/10 to have the most corners and I foresee the ball being played in Spurs' half most of the match. If that market does not capture your imagination, take the 11/8 for a City win, the league belongs in the other half of Manchester this season.
