Spurs can’t forget the pain of last season’s White Hart Lane mauling.
The Lilywhites have had to wait more than 18 months for a chance to avenge the 5-1 home defeat to City in 2011 and Michael Dawson believes today is the day to banish what is still a painful memory.
"It will be a tough game for them and hopefully we can put one over them after what happened last season," Dawson told ITV.com.
"They're all important games for us now. We were disappointed after the Basle result but we can't dwell on that.
"We have to move on, now we have six big games left and we have plenty to play for starting on Sunday."
ITV go on to speculate that Gareth Bale, Jermain Defoe and Aaron Lennon could all return today following injuries
On the transfer front, there are no shortage of stories in the Sunday Press with The People suggesting the Blues are monitoring yet another talented teen.
They report: “Manchester City are ready to beat their Premier League rivals for Holland’s new superstar Rodney Kongolo.
“City sent a delegation to watch the teenage midfielder in action for Holland’s youth team against Belgium. Liverpool also want to snatch the 6ft 1in Feyenoord star when he turns 16 and also had scouts at the international.”
The Daily Star reckon City and Liverpool will be involved in another transfer tussle this summer, too. Paul Hetherington writes: “Liverpool have made Manchester City defender Micah Richards and QPR striker Loic Remy their top targets for next season.
“Liverpool see Richards as a centre-half but will face competition for the England defender from AC Milan and Arsenal.”
