Good day fellow Blues! City travel to White Hart Lane today to face Spurs in an important Premier League clash. Just four months ago, the Blues beat Spurs at the Lane 1-0 on a counter-attacking goal by Sergio Aguero. City is facing a bit of an injury crisis entering today's match with six first team players unlikely to play a role in today's action.

The Blues have won 8 of the last 9 matches against Tottenham. Prior to this current run, Spurs had a better winning percentage against City than any other top flight club in the Premier League era. The turnaround in the rivalry began in May 2011 when a 1-0 Blues victory over Tottenham ensured a Champions League birth for the club and relegated Spurs to the Europa League. Since then Manchester City has dominated the series.
