Harry has major injury problems in attack for the trip to Stoke, Peter Crouch is our only fit striker and will probably play the full 90 mins. Keane Pav and Defoe have all picked up injuries in midweek on the artifical pitch. Gio and Modric are out too so only our second game of the season and already the Tottenham injury curse has kicked in.
Stoke are a very good home side and will pose a threat, after losing to Stoke at the lane last season we went up there and stole a 2-1 win with a good team performance. Personally I am hoping we can play well which will give us the best chance of pulling off a result but I fear too many injuries may cost us and I think a draw might not be too bad of a result up there this time.

Would like some predicitons from you guys too, these are the sort of games we should be winning if we want to stay a top 4 side but when it comes to away matches we are very hit and miss. I am going to go for a 1-1 draw as it can be a difficult place to go and they will beat a few good teams up there this season but I just hope we can avoid being on that list.
Let’s have your starting XI even though the team will probably pretty much pick itself , it will still be nice to see if there is anyone you would throw in tomorrow who wouldn’t usually get a game.
Tottenham Squad: Gomes, Cudicini, King, Hutton, Bale, Kaboul, Naughton, Bassong, Dawson, Corluka, Jenas, Assou-Ekotto, Walker, Huddlestone, Rose, Lennon, Palacios, Kranjcar, Crouch.
