Tottenham Hotspur's April looks to be a manic one for them and their new stadium after they drew Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Spurs will now face Pep Guardiola's men three times in the space of 11 days next month, interspersed with other Premier League matches.

On current form (ours) it is a nightmare. I am not looking forward to playing them, new stadium or not. 4 weeks ago, I'd be more positive.

We play at our best when we’re the underdog and when we have a run of games in a short space of time. Basically the opposite of playing Burnley after a 10 day break.

Wait, what? In the Premier League season? Someone must alert the authorities.

It's not a nightmare to be in the quarter finals and have the opportunity to face one of the world's best. We just need to believe in ourselves and raise our game.

On the one had that sounds positive when being referred to as underdogs on the other before we get to April, not playing for such a long time before we bowl up at Anfield doesn't bode well. We need to start playing ourselves into form pretty damn quickly to gain some much needed confidence and on that note this is not a game I would have hand picked to start this run.

No. But it’s a huge lift if we do manage to win it.
