In Sunday’s Premier League match in North London, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will rekindle their rivalry just over two weeks after their six-goal thriller at the Etihad Stadium.

Last weekend, both teams advanced to the FA Cup fifth round, with Spurs defeating Preston North End with ease 3-0 and the Citizens defeating 14-time champion Arsenal 1-0.

This week, spare a thought for Antonio Conte, who hands the reigns over to Cristian Stellini at Tottenham after having his gallbladder surgically removed after complaining of “serious abdominal pain” during last weekend’s FA Cup victory over Preston.

Tottenham is attempting to win three straight games for the first time since October, although the Lilywhites have recently struggled at home and suffered a loss right after back-to-back victories in November and January.

In fact, Man City has a recent record when it comes to scoring multiple goals against their North London rivals, as four of Spurs’ last five Premier League meetings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been in defeat with at least two goals conceded in each of those games.

Man City may have had three victories at home, but despite that, the champions have dropped their last two away games against Manchester United and Southampton. Guardiola has also shockingly lost all four of his prior trips to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium; he has a worse record at no other stadium.

Tottenham will even have the support of the red side of North London, for a couple of hours at most, in their attempt to right the wrongs of the Etihad encounter. A furious Guardiola tore into his players after their 4-2 win over Spurs in January, where Conte’s side got to halftime with a 2-0 advantage before the Riyad Mahrez-inspired fightback.
