Of course, in the Citizen’s camp again aspire to regain domination in matches with the Spurs, especially because they will play at home where they have achieved this season the maximal effect in the Premier League. Coach Pellegrini players have won all five matches played at home, but have brought only four points from six away matches and at this point are just eighth in the standings. In the last round were unexpectedly defeated away by Sunderland, which ruined an excellent series of three consecutive victories; in the League Cup, where they qualified for the quarter-finals, then in the championship against Norwich and in the Champions League against CSKA Moscow, with which have definitely verified their place in the knockout phase.
It should be stressed that the Citizens at the moment are by far the most efficient team of the Premier League with even 28 scored goals for which the greatest merit certainly goes to great Aguero. Besides him Negredo stabilised in the top of the attack in recent time. Regarding the rest of the team, a lot of changes are expected in the defence and midfield after a blunder in Sunderland. We should add that are still questionable unrecovered stopper Kompany, midfielders Silva and attackers Jovetic.
Tottenham Hotspur team are currently sitting seventh in the table with 20 points from six wins, two draws and three defeats. Away from home they lost 1-0 at Arsenal earlier in the season which is the only time their defence has been breached in five Premier League road trips. Other away results comprise of wins at Palace (1-0), Cardiff (1-0) and Villa (2-0) and a 0-0 draw at Everton. With just nine league goals in 11 games Spurs are starting to become frustrating and, because of this, Adebayor could make his first appearance of the season against old club Manchester City. Eriksen sustained an ankle injury on international duty with Denmark and will be out for around 4 weeks. while while Danny Rose remains sidelined. Fryers and Chadli have recovered from their respective troubles and also Hugo Lloris is fit to return in goal.

Possible line-ups:
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Pantilimon; Zabaleta, Demichelis, Nastasic, Clichy; Fernandinho, Touré; Nasri, Agüero, Navas; Negredo.
Tottenham (4-2-3-1):
Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Chiriches, Vertonghen; Dembélé, Paulinho; Townsend, Sandro, Sigurdsson; Adebayor.
