Michael Dawson is determined to exact revenge on Manchester City after their 5-1 hammering of Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season.

Spurs welcome City to north London later, knowing victory is vital if they are to keep up with Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for the top four.

And Tottenham's fans will not need reminding what happened when City rolled in to town last season - an awesome display from Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko giving Spurs the worst possible start to the season.

"It will be a tough game for them and hopefully we can put one over them after what happened last season," said Dawson, who led Spurs to a disappointing penalty shoot-out defeat to Basle a week and a half ago.

"They're all important games for us now. We were disappointed after the Basle result but we can't dwell on that.

"We have to move on, now we have six big games left and we have plenty to play for starting on Sunday."

Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe are expected to be in the squad after overcoming their respective ankle and pelvis injuries while Aaron Lennon also has a chance of being available following a knee problem.
