Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

This afternoon's encounter is the 54th here at the Lane between the two clubs in League football.

The previous 53 have resulted in 25 home wins, 13 for City with 15 drawn matches.

City were last here on September 23, 2000 when the game ended goal-less. The crowd figure was 36,069.

Our last win here over City was on January 13, 1996. Chris Armstrong notched the only goal of the game after 66 minutes.

City's last win here was on October 19, 1991, when Niall Quinn's 77th minute goal proved to be the winner. Their five visits since have yielded four defeats and one drawn match.
