Tottenham v Hull: Predicted line-ups

Published Add your comment

Football News

Tottenham will seek to secure their place in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup when they take on Hull for a second time in three days at White Hart Lane tonight.

Spurs scraped past their Premier League rivals by virtue of a Roberto Soldado penalty on Sunday - but it is likely to be a different affair altogether this evening with both sides set to make plenty of changes.

While Spurs will look to use the full depth of their squad to keep as many players as possible fresh for their trip to Everton on Sunday, Hull boss Steve Bruce will have his hand forced by a growing injury list.

Although Danny Graham and Robert Koren could return six players have not made the trip, while Sone Aluko is a major doubt.

Jake Livermore will once more miss out while Tom Huddlestone and Steve Harper may be rested.

For Spurs, they look set to be without Danny Rose and Younes Kaboul once more - both are making progress with their injuries but tonight's game may come too soon.

Etienne Capoue, who has been out of action since Tottenham's 1-0 defeat against Arsenal, may return.

Erik Lamela may well start, while a host of first-team regulars will be rested. Manager Andre Villas-Boas's biggest selection headache may come in attack, with Jermain Defoe amongst the goals and Emmanuel Adebayor back in first team training and pushing for his first game of the season.

Predicted Tottenham line-up: Friedel, Naughton, Chiriches, Dawson, Fryers, Capoue, Dembele, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Defoe

Predicted Hull line-up: McGregor; Rosenior, Faye, Davies, Figueroa; El Mohamady, Koren, Meyler, Brady; Graham, Sagbo
