Roberto Mancini's side, who lead the league on 51 points, will look to extend their lead over third-place Tottenham to eight points when the two sides meet this weekend.
However, the Spurs boss believes that his side have the talent to hurt the league leaders.
"It's another big game," he told the club's official website. "We want to go there and get a result, play well and come away with something.
"I wouldn't want to go there and sit back. I believe we've players who can hurt them and we'll be looking to take the game to them if we can.
"I think we can go there and play really well on Sunday. They will know they've had a game, for sure."
Tottenham can close the gap to two points with a win on the road this weekend.
