For the last 15 years the Premier League has been dominated by Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, but not any more.

With the emergence of Manchester City and Tottenham the so-called ‘Sky’s top four’ has been infiltrated and broken up (for good, hopefully) by two teams who deserve to be challenging for honours.

With City beating Wigan on Monday and Spurs only managing to add one point to their league tally at the weekend Vital Manchester City assesses Tottenham’s title chances.

Harry Redknapp’s team travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday in what can only be described as a six-pointer. If Spurs are going to have a realistic chance of winning the league they are going to have to beat City on their own turf. And with the Toure brothers playing in the African Nations tournament, Vincent Kompany suspended and (Mad) Mario Balotelli a doubt Spurs have never had a better opportunity of clawing themselves up the league table.
