Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has warned Manchester City that their grip on the Barclays Premier League title could vanish within a matter of weeks.
Spurs head into Sunday's game at the Etihad Stadium five points behind the leaders after suffering just one defeat since being thumped 5-1 by City at White Hart Lane in August.
City will move six points clear if they beat Spurs on Sunday afternoon before second-placed Manchester United take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, but Redknapp said: "Newcastle got caught (in 1996) when they were 12 points ahead. Manchester United got caught by Arsenal that year (1998). It can evaporate. Nine points can go in a week."
