Tottenham v Manchester City in VIDEO

The 2010/11 Premier League season couldn’t start with a more exciting match. Cue Saturday lunch time and Tottenham and Manchester City will go head to head at White Hart Lane and hopefully start the season with a bang. All eyes will be on City to see what effect Roberto Mancini’s big spending has on the pitch, while Harry Redknapp will be hoping that Spurs can continue their hoodoo over the blue half of Manchester. Here are some classic matches from years past:

Tottenham 3-4 Manchester City (2004): Not a Premier League match but a classic nonetheless and goes down as one of the greatest comebacks in FA Cup history. Spurs raced into a three goal lead in the first half at White Hart Lane, but City (minus Joey Barton) weren’t about to render the second half as academic as Martin Tyler suggested. Andy Gray’s “I’ve seen it, but I still don’t believe it” says it all…

Tottenham 3-2 Manchester City (1981): Another FA Cup encounter, this time a Final Replay no less. The 100th cup final is the last time City contested a major final, something Mancini will look to rectify. But the day belonged to Tottenham – step forward Ricky Villa, who ensured that Spurs had plenty to cheer at Wembley that day…

Manchester City 2-4 Tottenham (1993): More FA Cup action, it’s a shame that this match is remembered more for the pitch invasion than the Nayim hat-trick. Cue a slightly younger looking Des Lynam, Alan Hansen and Jimmy Hill…

Manchester City 0-1 Tottenham (2010): Not a classic by any means, but will go in Tottenham’s history as the victory that secured them Champions League football for the first time. This clip possibly makes the game seem more exciting that it actually was, but I’m sure Spurs fans weren’t complaining…

It also means we can show Harry Redknapp getting soaked!
