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.
Sunday's fixture aside, Vital Manchester City takes a look at the team's next six Premier League games.
Everton (A) - Sunday 31 Jan
Fulham (H) - Saturday 4 Feb
Aston Villa (A) - Sunday 12 Feb
Blackburn (H) - Saturday 25 Feb
Bolton (H) - Saturday 3 March
Swansea (A) - Saturday 10 March
Wigan (H) - Tuesday 31 Jan
Liverpool (A) - Monday 6 Feb
Newcastle (H) - Saturday 11 Feb
Arsenal (A) - Sunday 26 Feb
Manchester United (H) - Saturday 3 March
Everton (A) - Saturday 10 March
Come Sunday 11 March how many points do you expect City and Spurs to have accumulated and in what league position do you expect each team to be in?
ESPN football pundits Shaka Hislop and Steve Nicol assess the chances of Tottenham winning the Premier League.
