This has been an eventful campaign for Spurs, who were the inexplicable early pace-setters in the Premier League before injuries exacerbated a drastic drop in form. Though fans are extremely pleased with what Postecoglou has brought to the table, unless you subscribe to the notion of Tottenham as Premier League title contenders, the FA Cup represents their last hope of winning silverware this season. 

Pep Guardiola has lifted either the FA Cup, League Cup or both in five of the past six years, so after suffering a shock early exit in the Carabao, Man City won't be taking anything for granted in north London. Erling Haaland may be out, but the long-awaited return of Kevin de Bruyne has electrified the club, and they'll surely break their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium duck today.

You'll want to tune in to see who progresses, so read on as we explain all the ways to get a Tottenham vs Man City live stream where you are.
