Manchester City head to Tottenham on Sunday knowing victory is essential to maintain their ever-loosening grasp on the Premier League trophy for a few more days.

Spurs have named Gareth Bale in their squad ahead of the clash with City and must now decide whether to take a risk on their star man.

Bale, named among the six nominees for the PFA Player of the Year award on Friday, suffered an ankle injury in the first leg of Spurs' Europa League exit at the hands of Basel.

Winger Aaron Lennon is hoping to be back in contention after sustaining a knee injury in the second meeting with the Swiss side.

Manchester City pair David Silva and Sergio Aguero are doubtful for the trip to White Hart Lane with hamstring problems.

Playmaker Silva has missed the last two games after pulling up in the derby win at Manchester United while striker Aguero withdrew as a precaution at half-time of the midweek game against Wigan.

Following defender Micah Richards' successful return from injury in midweek, right-back Maicon (knee) and midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring) could also be in contention.
