Spurs to face Manchester City 3 times in 11 days

Spursforlife manchester city v tottenham

The month of April is one of Tottenham’s busiest of the season with no fewer than six games across the Premier League and Champions League.

It also promises to be one of the toughest as half of those games will be against Premier League defending champions Manchester City.

After the pair were drawn together in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, it means the pair will face each other three times in just eleven days as the two sides already had a Premier League encounter scheduled in for Saturday 20th April.

The first leg of the last eight clash in the Champions is set to take place at White Hart Lane (hopefully) on the 9th of April with a home tie against Huddersfield Town sandwiched in four days later and just another four days before the second leg at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium on Wednesday the 17th of April.

It means a congested fixture as the Lilywhites attempt to secure a top four spot in the Premier League.

It is something of a double-edged sword as on one side the Champions League represents the Tottenham’s last chance of a trophy this season, and the Lilywhites look to be in good form in the competition after comprehensively beating Borussia Dortmund over two legs in order to qualify for the latter stages of Europe’s elite club competition.  

On the other side though it means a congested fixture list as the club attempts to secure an all important top four spot in the Premier League with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and dare we say it Arsenal breathing down Tottenham’s neck.

Despite no longer featuring in the title run themselves, the Lilywhites will still have a big say in the direction of the Premier League title as the trip to the Etihad can testify.

Not only that, Spurs will also travel to Anfield at the end of March with much riding on Tottenham’s performances as the season starts to get to its business end.

With so much on the line and so much still to play for, Tottenham could still be celebrating one of their most successful seasons to date with the Champions League final now well in sight.

Ticket to Madrid for the 1st June anyone?
