Barclays Premier League Sunday Preview

Tottenham full-backs Pascal Chimbonda and Young-Pyo Lee face late fitness tests after picking up knocks during the UEFA Cup clash against Anderlecht.
Striker Robbie Keane starts his three-match ban for his red card against Birmingham on 2 December.
Manchester City midfielder Elano is a doubt with a hamstring injury.
But midfielder Michael Johnson is back after abdominal surgery and striker Darius Vassell has been declared fit after a hamstring problem.

Tottenham (from): Robinson, Cerny, Chimbonda, Lee, Stalteri, Dawson, Kaboul, Zokora, Jenas, Huddlestone, Malbranque, Lennon, Bent, Berbatov, Defoe, Tainio, Boateng, Taarabt.

Man City (from): Isaksson, Hart, Corluka, Sun, Dunne, Richards, Garrido, Ball, Ireland, Johnson, Geovanni, Fernandes, Elano, Petrov, Mpenza, Bianchi, Vassell, Samaras.

Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson on dropping out of the top four:"I don't accept that we are now playing for fifth place, why should I do that?
"It is a big challenge to dislodge one of the favourites by the end of the season but I am not thinking about that just this Sunday's game at Tottenham.
"All we can do is take one game at a time and see what happens."

Man City Away form has been poor but Tottenham defence and away record has been one of the worst in the premier league and they have conceded 15 goals in 7 home games that is conceding averaging 2 goals per match.My Prediction for this match will be Man City to nick it 0 - 1 as they have scored only 6 goals in 7 away games they played this season and Iceman Sven-Goran Eriksson is determined to imporve the team away form and challange for the illusive top 4 spot
