City are in fantastic form right now and are understandably drawing plenty of plaudits, but Spurs will travel up North confident of breaking this 15-match winning run. They have raised their game themselves recently and they have the quality to snatch a point from the Etihad.

May 2010 saw the teams face off at the Etihad in a game which for all intents and purposes was a decider to see who would earn the last available Champions League berth. It would be Tottenham who would go on to play in Europe’s premier club competition thanks to Peter Crouch’s late goal.
