CONFIRMED: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City line-ups - Sigurdsson starts for Spurs!

White Hart Lane

Here are the sides Tim Sherwood and Manuel Pellegrini have selected as Spurs host Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Rose, Lennon, Bentaleb, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Eriksen, Adebayor

Subs: Friedel, Naughton, Capoue, Chadli, Holtby, Defoe, Soldado

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Clichy, Navas, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko

Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Nastasic, Kolarov, Rodwell, Negredo, Jovetic

Tottenham will be looking to avenge the thrashing they were handed by Manchester City earlier this season, as they look to go joint fourth with Liverpool on 46 points.

Tottenham have been decent in a defensive sense recently and overall they have only conceded one more goal than their opponents this evening.

Tottenham’s problem has been scoring, especially in the big games, as Tim Sherwood’s side have the joint worst attacking record with Swansea City in the top ten this season.

City will be very confident heading into this game because of the attacking options Manuel Pellegrini has at his disposal.

City have scored 63 goals in Premier League matches this season, with only Liverpool getting close to them on 57 goals scored.

City will look to keep things tight as Tottenham are bound to start the match quickly, before allowing their more creative and attacking players to get into the game.
