Younes Kaboul has told Tottenham to prove their worth against Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday.

Spurs lost 6-0 and 5-1 to City last season amid a number of heavy defeats to the top teams.

But Mauricio Pochettino's side are unbeaten away from home this season, including a 1-1 draw at Arsenal, and hope to surprise City at the Etihad Stadium.

We can't wait for this match, we want to go there and play our game. We need to repeat the same performance as we produced against Arsenal.

In these big games we need to do something to show everyone what we are capable of.

– Younes Kaboul
