Norwich have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game but
defender Kyle Naughton, on loan from Spurs, will miss the match
through suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the
season against Wolves in midweek. Former Everton striker James
Vaughan is on course for a return in the New Year from his knee
problem, along with centre-back Elliott Ward (knee). On-loan
Manchester United defender Ritchie de Laet (back) could return.
Tottenham forward Rafael van der Vaart is likely to miss the game
after suffering a hamstring injury in Thursday night’s 1-1 draw
against Chelsea. Spurs will give tests to Jermain Defoe and Younes
Kaboul (both hamstring) before deciding whether they will play any
part in the clash at Carrow Road. Ledley King is unlikely to play
having completed two games in five days while Aaron Lennon
(hamstring), Michael Dawson (Achilles) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle)
are out. Norwich (from): Ruddy, Tierney, Whitbread, Martin,
Naughton, Crofts, Da Laet, Johnson, Pilkington, Bennett, Hoolahan,
Morison, Rudd, Barnett, Fox, Holt, Surman, Wilbraham, Jackson.
Tottenham (from): Gomes, Friedel, Cudicini, Bale, Corluka, Bassong,
Rose, Kaboul, Gallas, King, Walker, Assou-Ekotto, Parker, Modric,
Livermore, Townsend, Carroll, Fredericks, Falque, Sandro, Pienaar,
Pavlyuchenko, Defoe, Dos Santos, Adebayor, Van der Vaart, Kane.
