What Is Man City’s Biggest Defeat At Tottenham Stadium

Ahead of their next Premier League match, let’s take a look at the Man City’s biggest defeat at Tottenham Stadium as the Cityzens have always struggled to get results away against the Spurs in the Premier League era, which began in the 1992.

Over the years, the Manchester City have become one of the best teams in the world. They have successfully put behind them the era of struggling to make European football and fighting to survive being relegated. In the last decade, they could be described as the most successful club in the English top-flight league.

They have become a dreadful team to many opponents and have humiliated even top European clubs on their good days but playing at the home of Tottenham Hotspur has always been difficult. They have suffered many consecutive defeat at the venue, particularly in the league matches which they are currently on four matches winless run.

Having struggled against Tottenham away on different occasions, let’s take a look at their biggest defeat in the Premier League history.

Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 Manchester City, 26 September 2015

Manchester City have played 26 away matches against Tottenham since 1992/93 season and only won six. The Cityzens were defeat by the North London club 17 times, and only settled for a draw on three occasions.

Man City's Record At Tottenham Stadium

Among the 17 defeats, the Spur’s biggest win was in September 2015, a year before Pep Guardiola took over the Manchester Club. The host team score 4 goals while Kevin De Bruyne managed to score only goal of the Cityzens.

Interestingly, Man City scored the first goal of the match, but Tottenham went on to win by a wide margin after Eric Dier cancelled out Kevin De Bruyne’s opener. Toby Alderweireld gave Spurs the lead in the 50 minutes and Harry Kane made it 3-1 a few minutes later. Erik Lamela sealed the victory by scoring the last goal of the match in the 79 minutes.

Nine years after the match, Tottenham will be without all the goalscorers on Tuesday. Eric Dier and Harry Kane now play for the Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich. Toby Alderweireld now at Royal Antwerp in the Belgium Pro League, while Erik Lamela is at Sevilla FC in the Spainish La Liga.

Contrary, Manchester City will once again rely on Kevin De Bruyne‘s brilliant to lead them to victory or probably find the back of the net like he did nine years ago. The Belgian over the years has become a legend at the Sky Blues and become one of their best players in their recent history.
