Manchester City vs Tottenham Betting Tips: Son to fire past the Citizens once again
January 5, 2022
class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With Kane's fitness in doubt ahead of the Carabao Cup final, Al Hain-Cole is backing his team-mate to extend his strong run against the Citizens
Harry Kane will be desperate to recover from injury in time for Tottenham’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City on Sunday.
Spurs’ second all-time top scorer is yet to lift a trophy in his career so far, with only runners-up medals in the Champions League and this competition to his name.
In prolific form with 32 goals in all competitions this season, he is bet365’s 11/2 (6.50) favourite to open the scoring for his side at Wembley and priced at 7/4 (2.75) to strike anytime.
However, Ryan Mason need not completely despair should the captain fail his fitness test, with Son Heung-min proving a worthy match-winner in his absence.
The South Korea international has found the net 20 times so far this campaign and boasts a strong record against this opposition – scoring five times in the six most recent encounters.
Considering City have gone five matches without keeping a clean sheet, Son certainly looks like a good value bet at 5/2 (3.50) anytime odds on Sunday.
Gareth Bale offered a reminder of his quality as fired past Southampton after being brought in from the cold by caretaker manager Mason in midweek, and can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to deliver on the big stage here.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola is also faced with injury issues of his own, as Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero race against time to recover for the trip to Wembley.
Nevertheless, Gabriel Jesus is a very credible backup option for this match, particularly considering his prolific record in this competition.
Having scored seven times in six Carabao Cup starts, the Brazilian striker offers decent value at 4/1 (5.00) first goalscorer and 5/4 (2.25) anytime.
Responsible for two of his side’s three goals in February’s 3-0 league win over Tottenham, Ilkay Gundogan is on offer at 7/5 (2.40) to come back to haunt them once again.
On target in three of his last five appearances, Phil Foden is another Citizens player more than capable of justifying his own 7/4 (2.75) price in what promises to be an entertaining final.
