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).

Robbie Keane is not concerned about familiarity setting in when we take on Manchester City again tonight - he simply states that every game is different.

The FA Cup 4th round replay at the Lane will be our fourth encounter with City so far this season, having already met them in the Premiership, Carling Cup and the original tie.

"Every game is different," considered Robbie. "Some games you feel great and others you don't feel as good, but they are different."

A good example to illustrate Robbie's point is the contrast between the league meeting at the City of Manchester Stadium and the Carling Cup clash at the Lane. City had the boys well and truly on the back foot in the first game and somehow didn't score, while the reverse could be said of the cup game which resulted in a 3-1 win for Spurs.

"We have played Man City a few times, they know us and we know them," added the striker. "It is all on the day and who performs.

"If we can continue to play the way we've been playing I don't see a reason why we can't win."

Robbie continued the theme set by Gus Poyet when he reminded that it is all still to do tonight and the hard work started ten days ago is far from over.

"Exactly, a lot of people might be talking about Man Utd away but first of all we've got to beat Man City, which is going to be a tough game because they are a good side.

"I watched them against Arsenal on Sunday and thought they were unlucky. It will be tough, but we are playing at home with the crowd behind us."

Spurs are 4/5 to emerge victorious in tonight's FA Cup 4th round replay, while the draw at 9/4 and a City win priced at 11/4.

Robbie Keane is the shortest priced striker to score first (4/1), with Helder Postiga at 7/1. The now free from suspension Gus Poyet is 10/1 along with Stephane Dalmat, while Michael Brown and Simon Davies are a tempting 12/1.
