SlipsTips shares a selection ahead of Manchester City's Premier League encounter with Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad on Sunday.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur (Sunday, 16:30)

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur meet in a mouth-watering Premier League showdown at the Etihad on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's side were knocked off their perch last weekend when being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool, something that Arsenal fully capitalised on with their a 1-0 victory at Brentford.

As for Tottenham, their honeymoon period under Ange Postecoglou has come to a sudden halt following three straight defeats, the most recent of which was a 2-1 loss at home to Aston Villa.

Understandably, Spurs are expected to suffer another setback at the Etihad on Sunday, however I’m happy to highlight an alternative offering in PaddyPower’s Player To Be Fouled market.

Tottenham's Dejan Kulusevski has been priced up a 10/11 (PaddyPower) to be fouled at least once during this Super Sunday clash and that price looks too big to ignore.

The Swedish attacker has arguably been one of Spurs’ unsung heroes under Ange Postecoglou tutorship, evidenced by the fact that he is creating 2.1 chances per game in the Premier League this term.

That has coincided with Kulusevski drawing 0.8 fouls per 90 from Premier League opposition this season, with the Swede earning his side a free-kick in each of his last four top-flight appearances.

In fact, when you dig a bit deeper you can see that the Scandinavian has drawn a minimum of one foul from Spurs’ opponents in 10 of his 13 top-flight appearances this term.

Given that Tottenham’s attacking intensity is their best form of defence, it's unlikely that Spurs boss Postecoglou will sacrifice his principles, even in the illustrious surroundings of the Etihad.

Therefore, in what promises to be a high-octane affair, along with the likelihood of Kulusevski taking up in the number 10 role again this weekend, backing the Spurs forward to be fouled just once stands out at 10/11 (PaddyPower).
