Our quarterback, Tom Huddlestone, is back for this one after completing a three match ban. There are no real injury worries, Malbranque is suspended though, but Ramos could rest key players with the visit of Arsenal in the 2nd leg of the Cup Semi Final on Tuesday.
Sunderland are without Ross Wallace who is missing for the rest of the season with damaged knee ligaments as well as Higginbotham, Leadbitter and Etuhu. They are coming off the back of an important home win against Portsmouth but their form away from home reads badly with no wins, two draws and nine defeats. Spurs on the other hand are in great form at home having won their last four home games.
My main worry with this game is that there will be one eye on Tuesday night but this is an important match in it’s own right with our next two Premier League fixtures being Everton away then Man Utd at the Lane, points from either is doubtful.
Spurs should really have too much for Sunderland at home but I feel like an early goal is important, Sunderland have not lost a game when taking the lead this season.
