Sebastien Bassong and Younes Kaboul are Tottenham's only fit central defenders.

Ledley King joined Michael Dawson (Achilles), Vedran Corluka (foot) and William Gallas (calf) on the Spurs injury list on Sunday when he came off against Newcastle with a groin injury.

Redknapp will draft in youngsters like Danny Rose, Andros Townsend and Tom Carroll as he looks to protect his first XI ahead of Sunday's game at Blackburn, but Sandro (knee) and Aaron Lennon (groin), who both missed Sunday's draw at St James' Park, could play.

Tottenham (from): Gomes, Cudicini, Bassong, Corluka, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Waller-Lassen, Kaboul, Livermore, Sandro, Lennon, Townsend, Fredericks, Carroll, Nicholson, Parrett, Pavlyuchenko, Dos Santos, Falque, Kane, Lancaster, Pritchard.
