Redknapp saw his side lose 5-1 last time the two teams met, but insists that he will not sacrifice the attacking flair that has seen Spurs develop into serious title contenders.
"We will go there as a positive team. I wouldn't want to go there and sit back," said the veteran manager.
"We have people who can hurt them. We will go and take the game to them. City will know they have had a game, I'm sure.
"They have outstanding players and they are a good team. But so are we."
Redknapp took over at White Hart Lane in 2008 with the club bottom of the Premier League on just two points.
