Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas on Friday talked about Sunday's visit of the reigning English Premier League champions Manchester City to White Hart Lane. Villas-Boas insisted that he has no qualms about throwing Gareth Bale in to his team for Sunday's match with reigning English Premier League champions Manchester City. Bale has been out of action since Basle's David Degen stood on his right ankle 15 days ago, causing ligament damage. The fact that his ankle was bent almost at a right angle to his leg raised fears that the 23-year-old would not play again this season. An initial diagnosis of three weeks on the sidelines seemed optimistic at the time, but Bale has been training with the Spurs squad for the last two days and the in-form forward, who was nominated for the Player of the Year Award and the Young Player of the Year Award on Friday, now looks set to be fit for this weekend's game at White Hart Lane.
