Gareth Bale is battling to be fit after sustaining a knock late in the goalless draw at Sunderland.

Bale was the subject of a solid tackle by Craig Gardner which left him nursing an ankle injury, and he could be rested with boss Harry Redknapp vowing to make changes.

Aaron Lennon is almost certain to make his first start in almost a month while Jermain Defoe could also start and Ledley King is back from a knee injury.

Norwich manager Paul Lambert is likely to rotate his squad for Monday’s clash.

Winger Anthony Pilkington could start after being left out of the squad for Saturday’s draw against Everton and the likes of Simeon Jackson, Andrew Crofts and Zak Whitbread could also be recalled.

Kyle Naughton is ineligible under the terms of his loan deal from Spurs, and Marc Tierney (groin), Daniel Ayala (knee) and James Vaughan (knee) are out.

Tottenham (from): Friedel, Cudicini, Assou-Ekotto, Rose, Kaboul, Gallas, Khumalo, Walker, King, Nelsen, Livermore, Sandro, Parker, Bale, Kranjcar, Lennon, Dos Santos, Modric, Defoe, Adebayor, Saha, Van der Vaart, Lancaster, Luongo

Norwich (from: Ruddy, Ward, Whitbread, Drury, Crofts, Pilkington, Surman, E Bennett, Fox, Hoolahan, Holt, Jackson, Morison, Wilbraham, Steer, Johnson, Martin, Howson, R Bennett.
