Sports Mole looks ahead to Manchester City's Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

Wednesday evening's visit of Manchester City to White Hart Lane will provide Tottenham Hotspur with the chance of some redemption.

Back in November, Spurs were humiliated at the Etihad Stadium as City hit them for six.

Not long after, Andre Villas-Boas was sent packing. Since then, Tim Sherwood has guided the North Londoners through six Premier League fixtures, from which they have collected 16 points.

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.

That would mean that Emmanuel Adebayor would continue in his role as a lone striker, with the support being provided by the likes of Aaron Lennon and Christian Eriksen.

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.
