Adam Johnson does not believe there is any chance of Manchester City repeating their five-goal "humiliation" of Tottenham on Sunday.

The true impact of City's staggering 5-1 August win at White Hart Lane took a long time to sink in. Looking back, it is as amazing as any other of the freak results that have littered the season given Tottenham have bounced back to become serious Premier League title contenders.

And, whilst Johnson is determined City should maintain their perfect home record in the league, the former Middlesbrough man accepts it will be much tougher, and said: "That was a one-off. We humiliated them with some of the football we played. I don't think many teams would have got close to us. The passing and movement was staggering."
