City have continued to win and score at ease since that drubbing, winning nine, drawing one and scoring 29 goals in the subsequent 10 games. That run of results has moved Manuel Pellegrini’s side to within one point of leaders Arsenal.

Spurs meanwhile dropped to 8th in the table after that defeat but under the tutelage of new man Tim Sherwood they have improved considerably.

A six game unbeaten run which includes four successive league wins have pushed the Londoners to the brink of the Champions League spots. The club are currently fifth level on points with Liverpool.

One of the key men in Spurs improved form has been former City striker Emmanuel Adebayor. The striker has scored 6 goals in 8 games since been recalled to the first team by Sherwood with the decision to move to a 4-4-2 formation reaping benefits for a previously shot-shy Spurs team.

Sherwood is set to be boosted by the return of Paulinho after a four game absence. The Brazilian midfielder is set to be joined in the squad by Andros Townsend (hamstring) and Jan Vertonghen (ankle) however Sandro (calf) and Younes Kaboul (thigh) are not ready to return.

City meanwhile will be without Samir Nasri with a knee injury but they are expected to recall Joe Hart, Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho to the side after the quartet were rested for the 4-2 win over Watford in the FA cup.

Pellegrini’s side came from 2-0 down on that occasion to secure a meeting with Chelsea in the fifth round with Aguero scoring a second half hat-trick to seal the win.

The Argentine striker has now scored 25 goals in all competitions this season with his blossoming partnership with 23 goal man Alvaro Negredo key to City’s success.

Spurs won 3-1 when the two sides met at White Hart Lane last season and a similar result would set them up nicely in the race for the final champion’s league spot, although title chasing City will have other ideas.
