Stoke manager Tony Pulis will make a late check on his globe-trotting striker Ricardo Fuller before deciding whether he starts against Tottenham.
Fuller breathed new life into Jamaica's World Cup qualifying campaign when he scored a 25-yard shot to secure a shock win over Sven-Goran Eriksson's Mexico last weekend and he and his countrymen followed that up by beating Honduras on Wednesday.
"I hope Ric comes back safe and sound and full of life, but it's been a big week for him and we will have to assess how much he's got left in his tank," Pulis said. "He's made some long plane journeys and there's an eight or nine hour time difference from where he's been. Ric's biological clock is a big worry."
He added: "We've had problems when he's been away before. The last time he came back from international duty he had picked up a virus and it took him a couple of weeks to get going again.
"On the plus side, he scored a great goal against Mexico and he should be on a high. As I said, we will take a look at him and make a late decision."
