Tottenham Hotspur defender Younes Kaboul has insisted his side won’t be cowed by Manchester City.

 

The Spurs stopper was sending out a message to the Barclays Premier League leaders ahead of the sides’ clash at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

 

The White Hart Lane side trail Roberto Mancini’s side by eight points but Kaboul is confident Harry Redknapp’s charges can cause an upset.

 

“No, it's not scary. It will be the same as facing Wolves in our last game,” the 26-year-old told The Sun.

 

“It will be a tough away game with a good atmosphere but we can do something.

 

“Everyone is waiting for that game, it's going to be a big game and we need to prepare properly. I'm sure it will be a good one to watch.”

 

The omens for a Spurs victory are mixed as they lost at the Etihad Stadium last season but achieved a famous victory the year before to secure their first ever qualification for the Champions League.

 

The previous meeting between the sides this season holds painful memories for Redknapp and his side; White Hart Lane was witness to four goals from Edin Dzeko in a 5-1 rout.

 

Sunday’s clash is unlikely to have a similar outlook as since that defeat, and another comprehensive beating from Manchester United, Tottenham have lost just once in the league.
