Shaun Wright-Phillips could be on the substitutes’ bench as Manchester City look for a win at Tottenham that would keep them in the hunt for a Europa League spot.

The England star has struggled to overcome a knee injury that has kept him out for a month but he returned to training yesterday and is set to play some part at White Hart Lane.

Robinho (groin) is definitely out, which could mean a starting berth for Martin Petrov.

Team (from): Given, Hart, Richards, Dunne, Onuoha, Bridge, Garrido, Zabaleta, Elano, Fernandes, Ireland, De Jong, Kompany, Petrov, Bojinov, Caicedo, Evans, Berti.
