King (hamstring) and Bassong (head, neck and knee) were injured against Chelsea at the weekend, while Woodgate may require further surgery on a groin complaint - but the good news is Michael Dawson returning from an Achilles problem.

Spurs (from): Gomes, Cudicini, Walker, Hutton, Bale, Bentley, Huddlestone, Lennon, Jenas, Keane, Palacios, Crouch, Naughton, Giovani, Defoe, Dawson, Corluka, Rose, Dervite, Assou-Ekotto.
