Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt for Tottenham's Capital One Cup game at Norwich after he missed training on Monday with a stomach bug.

Moussa Dembele could also miss out thanks to the niggling hip injury and long-term absentees Scott Parker (Achilles), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) remain sidelined.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas will rest a number of his first-team players, meaning the likes of Hugo Lloris, Andros Townsend, Yago Falque and Kyle Naughton could all start at Carrow Road.

Norwich are missing defender Russell Martin because of a back injury.

Manager Chris Hughton has confirmed that midfielder Jacob Butterfield will be involved in the tie at Carrow Road.

Harry Kane, on loan from Spurs, is on course to return before Christmas following foot surgery.

Norwich (from): Ruddy, Bassong, Barnett, Garrido, Howson, Snodgrass, Johnson, E Bennett, Surman, Holt, Rudd, Steer, Turner, Jackson, Pilkington, Hoolahan, Lappin, Fox, Morison, Butterfield, Tierney, Tettey, R Bennett, C Martin.
