Tottenham Hotspur host EPL champions Manchester City on Sunday seeking revenge for their 4-2 defeat at the Etihad on January 19.

Spurs blew a 2-0 lead in the reverse fixture and slipped to 5th place on the table with 36 points, nine less than their opponents.

Man City can reduce the difference between them and league leaders Arsenal to 5 points if they can complete the double over Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.

Both teams progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup last weekend, as Spurs hammered Preston North End 3-0, while the City edged 14-time winners Arsenal 1-0.

Tottenham have lost four of their last five home games in the Premier League – their worst record in this regard since 2014.

Man City have lost their last 3 away EPL games against Tottenham by an aggregate of 5-0 and have never failed to score in 4 consecutive away league games against a single opponent.

Pep Guardiola’s side have lost 2 of their last 5 games away from home – as many defeats as they had suffered in the 37 such matches preceding this run.

Tottenham suffered defeat immediately after back-to-back wins in November and January, desperate to bag all 3 points in this fixture.

Both their last English Premier League games ended in victory as Spurs edged Fulham 1-0, while City destroyed Wolves in a 3-0 triumph.

Do the visitors have what it takes to bag a win away from home and reduce the point difference between them and leaders Arsenal?
