Stoke boss Tony Pulis has no fresh injury problems ahead of the game.

Peter Crouch, who did not travel to Kiev last week after missing training, returned to action along with Matthew Etherington (back), Rory Delap (groin) and Marc Wilson (hamstring) in Sunday's 4-0 Premier League drubbing at Sunderland.

There was a start too for defender Jonathan Woodgate, who is not registered for the Potters' Europa League games, in a side which featured eight changes, and it would be no surprise if Pulis shuffled his pack once again ahead of Saturday's home clash with leaders Manchester United.

William Gallas and Sandro could make their first Spurs appearances of the season at Stoke.

Gallas (calf) and Sandro (knee) both picked up their injuries this summer but will play tomorrow if they come through training today.

Tottenham will field a team containing a mix of the youngsters who played in Greece last week and the fringe players, including goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, who did not feature against Liverpool yesterday.

Stoke (from): Begovic, Wilson, Huth, Shawcross, Upson, Wilkinson, Whelan, Whitehead, Diao, Etherington, Walters, Jones, Sorensen, Shotton, Arismendi, Woodgate, Pennant, Delap, Crouch, Palacios, Jerome.

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