Tottenham news: Clive Allen explains how Spurs can beat Manchester City in the Champions League

Tottenham must be brave and attack Manchester City if they want to upset the odds and progress from their Champions League quarter-final, insists Spurs legend Clive Allen.

The north Londoners welcome the champions to their new stadium on Wednesday night and enter the tie as underdogs.
