Tottenham travel to the Eithad to face Manchester City in Saturday's early kick-off, hoping to avoid a repeat of their previous heavy defeats to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

Second placed City have scored 11 goals against Spurs in their last two meetings and will be aiming for back-to-back victories following their 2-0 away win against Aston Villa, as they look to keep up the pace with league leaders Chelsea.
