Tottenham captain Ledley King only has a small chance of playing at Manchester City on Sunday as he struggles to recover from the hamstring injury which has sidelined him for the last four weeks.

Jermain Defoe is likely to partner Rafael van der Vaart up front as Emmanuel Adebayor is unavailable due to the terms of his loan deal from City.

Sandro, William Gallas (both calf) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are unavailable.

Provisional Squad: Friedel, Gomes, Assou-Ekotto, Kaboul, Walker, King, Bassong, Bale, Modric, Van der Vaart, Parker, Livermore, Kranjcar, Defoe, Rose, Dos Santos, Cudicini, Pavlyuchenko, Lennon, Pienaar, Dawson.
