Back in November, Spurs were humiliated at the Etihad Stadium as City hit them for six.
Last time out against Swansea City, Sherwood reverted to a 4-5-1 formation and he could stick with the same tactics for the visit of City.
As for visiting City, they have a doubt over Alvaro Negredo, who is suffering with a shoulder complaint. Should the Spaniard miss out, then Edin Dzeko is likely to partner the fit-again Sergio Aguero in attack.
The Citizens have won just one of their last 10 trips to the Lane, which they achieved in August 2011 courtesy of a 5-1 victory.
