Manchester City will lead the Barclays Premier League if they can see off Tottenham Hotspur tonight (Wednesday January 29th), in a game to be broadcast live on BT Sport.
Arsenal's 2-2 draw away at Southampton on Tuesday means Manuel Pellegrini's free-scoring side can leapfrog the Gunners at the top of the table.
Arsène Wenger's men have led the way for much of the 2013-14 campaign, but City - arguably the form side in Europe - have been quickly catching them.
They have won 13 out of the last 14 games in all competitions, including seven on the bounce in the Barclays Premier League.
Hot-shot duo Álvaro Negredo and Sergio Agüero have led the charge, as City have scored 31 goals since Christmas - and over 100 so far in the current campaign.
But having played eight games in January already - and showing signs of fatigue in their recent FA Cup with Budweiser tie against Watford - can they keep the run going?
Opponents Spurs have played just four times since the New Year, with their last outing coming ten days ago in a 3-1 away win at Swansea City.
Tottenham have been revitalised under the management of Tim Sherwood, who has also overseen league wins against Southampton, Stoke City, Manchester United and Crystal Palace in the last six weeks.
With Emmanuel Adebayor back in favour and amongst the goals, and some of Spurs' big-money summer arrivals starting to prove their worth, the White Hart Lane crowd have had plenty to get behind in recent weeks.
As such, Man City could face a tough challenge tonight if they want to make it eight from eight in the Barclays Premier League.
Tottenham are currently in fifth spot in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool with a game in hand.
And a UEFA Champions League spot looks well within reach for Tottenham if they can hold their form during the latter part of the season.
BT Sport viewers can watch Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City live on BT Sport tonight, with the match kicking off at 7:45pm.
All BT broadband customers can enjoy the action via the BT Sport app and online player, regardless of whether they have a BT TV subscription or not.
