Tottenham 7-2 for European qualification

Tottenham still face an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages but at least they have given themselves a chance of progression and bookmakers rate Mauricio Pochettino's team 7-2 shots to reach the last 16.

Spurs, who needed two late Harry Kane goals at Wembley to come from behind to beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 on Wednesday, were on their way out of the competition before the captain for the evening led by example to keep the Londoners alive in Europe's elite competition.

Pochettino's side need to beat Inter at home on matchday five to remain in the qualifying hunt and a 1-0 success or victory by a two-goal margin would put their Group B destiny in their own hands.

However, the final match is away to Barcelona, hence quotes of 7-2 even though the Catalans are already through following their 1-1 draw at Inter on Tuesday. They are also likely to have secured top spot before Spurs head to Camp Nou on December 11.

Liverpool's shocking 2-0 loss away to Red Star Belgrade has hurt their Group C qualification hopes in a tight section where two points cover the four teams after Paris St-Germain drew 1-1 at Napoli.

Jurgen Klopp's side, who head to Paris next before ending at home to Napoli, are 4-9 to make the last 16 with the Italians at 4-11. PSG are available at 8-13.

  • Manchester City have not kept a clean sheet in their last four games
Expert verdict
Manchester City suffered their first league defeat of the season at Chelsea on Saturday, but don’t expect them to meet with the same fate when they host Everton at the Etihad. Despite that setback, City remain a fantastic team and it will take something special for Everton to stop the champions. But the Toffees are difficult to break down, going into half-time level in each of their last five games, and there could be value in expecting something similar. Marco Silva’s side have conceded just two goals in four games and defended well for much of the Merseyside derby before a Jordan Pickford howler.
