Injury concerns over Jenas

Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas is a major doubt to face his former club Newcastle on Sunday after suffering a hamstring injury last week.

Jenas picked up the complaint in the Barclays Premier League win over West Ham, although Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has Wilson Palacios back from suspension to face Alan Shearer's side.

Elsewhere in his team, Redknapp admits goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is staking a claim to be his number one, despite the arrival of Carlo Cudicini in January to add competition.

"He was excellent against West Ham," Redknapp said. "Potentially he is the top goalkeeper. I've got two good goalkeepers.

"I think Cudicini is a very good goalkeeper and has been unlucky not to be playing. This fella has done well so I stayed with him."

Club skipper Ledley King remains on course to play in the remainder of the games this season as they are spaced out enough for him to rest his knee.
