Spurs have only lost one of their last seven matches in all competitions which came in the north London derby against Arsenal in the third round of the FA Cup.

Tim Sherwood's side convincingly beat Swansea City 3-1 at the Liberty Stadium in their last Premier League fixture. An own goal by Chico Flores was sandwiched between two goals from Emmanuel Adebayor on either side of half-time. Wilfried Bony netted the consolation goal for the Swans in the second-half.

Spurs are currently fifth in the league table with 43 points from 22 matches. A win for the north London club will put them level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.

Meanwhile, City are flying high this season and are unbeaten in their last 19 matches in all competitions. When the two sides clashed at the Etihad in the reverse fixture back in November, the Citizens humiliated Spurs by registering a 6-0 win.

In their previous fixture on Saturday, City were trailing 2-0 at half-time against Watford in the fourth round of the FA Cup but Manuel Pellegrini's men responded well and bounced back in the second-half scoring four, with a hat-trick from Sergio Aguero and one goal from Aleksandar Kolarov.

The Chilean's side are second in the table with 50 points from 22 matches, and a win on Wednesday will send them to the top of the table, one point above current league leaders Arsenal.

What Managers Say

Tim Sherwood: "They are a top side and I believe anyone finishing above City this season will be champions, They are beating every team that stands in their way but we're confident we can impose our game on them and attack them in areas they've not been attacked in a long time. We've nothing to fear. It would be huge for us to beat City and the belief that would bring amongst the players and the fans would be great."

Manuel Pellegrini: "The results say that they improve a lot, they've won four games of the last five they played. I saw the last two games that they played and they are playing very well. I think it's always important to have a striker like they have Adebayor in a good moment and I'm sure we are going to have a tough game against them. It's important that I know that our team will go there and try to win the game."
