Spurs manager Harry Redknapp has stressed anyone “not in the right frame of mind to play” following Fabrice Muamba’s cardiac arrest at White Hart Lane on Saturday will be allowed to sit out the game.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is again a doubt (hamstring) and defender Ledley King (knee) will be assessed.

Winger Aaron Lennon remains sidelined with a hamstring problem while William Gallas is fit again following a calf injury.

Defender Michael Dawson (ankle), goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes (knee), and midfielder Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are out.

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic is set to return to the Stoke team.

Begovic has regained his spot as first-choice keeper for league fixtures and should come back in to replace Thomas Sorensen, who played in the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.

Striker Ricardo Fuller misses out again through suspension following his sending off against Chelsea.

Spurs (from): Friedel, King, Assou-Ekotto, Kaboul, Walker, Parker, Livermore, Bale, Modric, Sandro, van der Vaart, Adebayor, Saha, Defoe, Gallas, Cudicini, Nelsen, Rose, Kranjcar.

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