Tottenham Hotspur supporters insist the club can win their first league championship for 51 years this season, according to a poll conducted by GiveMeFootball.

Spurs are third in the Premier League, five points behind Manchester City, going into Sunday's showdown at the Etihad Stadium.

The season represents the closest Spurs have come to winning the title in the Premier League era, and their fans believe their side can overcome the Manchester pair who currently occupy the league's top two.

Over two thirds of those polled felt Spurs would claim the title this season, while the remaining third were split between writing off the North Londoners' chances and not knowing where they could convert their impressive first half to the season into some silverware.

A true test of the club's title winging credentials come this weekend, when they travel to leaders City, hoping to exact revenge for the 5-1 humiliation in August, inflicted by Roberto Mancini's side.

The afternoon in question saw Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko notch four goals for the visitors, and the former Werder Bremen hitman made a timely return to form on Monday, heading home the winner against Wigan Athletic giving City a three-point cushion over neighbours Manchester United.

The clash is the start of an eight-week spell which sees Redknapp's team take on eight of the league's top 11, a defining sector of their season.
