Tottenham v So'ton preview

Emmanuel Adebayor, Mousa Dembele and Younes Kaboul could all return for Tottenham's Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton.

The trio missed the 2-2 draw at Benfica through injury but are in with a chance of returning on Sunday, when Jan Vertonghen will again be available having been suspended for Thursday's Europa League tie.

Spurs manager Tim Sherwood said he did not expect any further good news on the injury front at White Hart Lane, with Michael Dawson, Vlad Chiriches, Kyle Walker, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue, Paulinho and Hugo Lloris all having missed the trip to Portugal.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Guly Do Prado are rated as doubtful for Southampton's trip to face Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday, according to Mauricio Pochettino.

Midfielder Schneiderlin has a muscle problem around his pelvis, leaving Southampton short of options in midfield with Jack Cork and Victor Wanyama still out.

Kelvin Davis also faces a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash.
