We'd barely had time to sit down when Jesus Navas' pinpoint strike gave us the lead against Spurs back in 2013.
With the shrill of the referee's whistle still ringing in our ears, the winger reacted quickest to Hugo Lloris' parry from a Sergio Aguero effort to give Manchester City a 1-0 lead after just 13 seconds.
Having joined the Club that summer, it was a fine way for the Spaniard to open his account, as his measured first time chip gave the Tottenham 'keeper no chance.
It proved to be the perfect start to a perfect day for Manuel Pellegrini's City, who were 3-0 up before the break and they added three more without reply in the second half to record a stunning 6-0 victory.
Navas had the final say too, side footing home the sixth in added time and he was joined on the score sheet by Sergio Aguerp (twice) and Alvaro Negredo, with Sandro also netting an own goal.
City XI: Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Nastasic (Lescott 45), Clichy, Navas, Toure, Fernandinho, Nasri (Milner 77), Negredo, Aguero (Garcia 69).
