Sports Mole previews Sunday's Premier League encounter between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad Stadium.

Roberto Mancini could welcome David Silva back to his Manchester City ranks for Sunday's visit of sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

The Spaniard has been missing for the last month with a hamstring problem.

Joleon Lescott and Maicon are also likely to be named in the Italian's squad, but Micah Richards and James Milner still require treatment.

Meanwhile, Spurs - who have already won in Manchester this season - are without Moussa Dembele, Scott Parker, Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul.

However, Sandro may recover from a calf strain in time to take a place on the bench.

City, who sit third in the Premier League, have won the last three meetings between the two sides.
