Next up for Spurs are top of the table Manchester City, who have won 15 consecutive league matches and dropped just the two points all season, at the Etihad on Saturday evening (5:30pm kick-off).
If they're able to safely navigate the trip up north then they have a favourable run of games over the festive period and could claw back the four-point lead Chelsea, who sit in third, have over them.
