Stoke City boss Tony Pulis barely has any injury concerns ahead of this fixture, as Mamady Sidibe (knee) is the only player still sidelined. But Danny Collins is also unavailable, after going out on loan to Ipswich Town.

Meanwhile, Rory Delap missed the victory over Everton with a back injury, but he should at least be able to make the bench for this clash.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp will not be able to use the services of David Bentley (knee), Michael Dawson (Achilles), Tom Huddlestone (ankle) or Jermaine Jenas (Achilles).

Several players are doubts for this fixture, with Gareth Bale recovering from a knock, while Jermain Defoe is dealing with a hamstring problem. Ledley King has yet again encountered a knee problem, while Niko Kranjcar is recovering from a thigh injury. Roman Pavlyuchenko was previously ruled out for the game against PAOK, but could be fit for the upcoming game. But it is unlikely that he might be handed a place in the starting lineup.

  • Stoke City has lost four of its last six games in the Premier League. But it has won its last two.
  • The Potters have beaten Spurs 16 times in league games at home, but have lost 11 games as well. A further nine ended as draws.
  • Over the course of the the two clubs' existence, Stoke has managed to put 94 goals past the north London club's defense, while conceding 126 in the process.
  • Tottenham Hotspur has won four of the last five Premier League games between the two sides, including two victories at the Britannia Stadium.
  • Gareth Bale (pictured right) has scored four goals and created four more in his last five games in the Premier League.
  • Harry Redknapp's men are currently undefeated in their last 11 league games, and are on a run of six consecutive victories.
