Spurs boss Harry Redknapp will revert to his first-choice XI for the game after resting a number of key players for Thursday night's Europa League clash at PAOK Salonika.

Rafael van der Vaart (hamstring), Aaron Lennon (groin) and William Gallas (calf) are making good progress in their recovery from injury and could play some part in the game at White Hart Lane.

Steven Pienaar (groin), Tom Huddlestone (ankle) and Ledley King (knee) face fitness tests but Michael Dawson (Achilles) is out and Sandro (knee) is unlikely to be risked despite returning to light training following a knee injury he suffered this summer.

Right-back Glen Johnson will miss Sunday's match at Tottenham after a recurrence of a hamstring injury last weekend.

Captain Steven Gerrard is nearing a return to fitness after six months out following a groin operation but he may not be risked at White Hart Lane.

Defender Martin Kelly is also close to a recall after coming back from a hamstring injury.

Tottenham (from): Gomes, Friedel, Cudicini, Bale, Kaboul, Bassong, Gallas, Corluka, Walker, King, Assou-Ekotto, Parker, Huddlestone, Lennon, Modric, Kranjcar, Livermore, Townsend, Lennon, Pienaar, Pavlyuchenko, Defoe, Dos Santos, Adebayor, Van der Vaart.

Liverpool (from): Reina, Skrtel, Carragher, Agger, Enrique, Adam, Lucas, Henderson, Kuyt, Downing, Suarez, Doni, Flanagan, Coates, Spearing, Shelvey, Rodriguez, Carroll, Bellamy, Kelly, Robinson.
