Ruel Fox (knee) is out of the Tottenham team and it could pave the way for a Premiership debut for at least one of manager George Graham's two new signings. Steffen Freund (pounds 750,000 from Borussia Dortmund) and Mauricio Taricco (pounds 1.7m from Ipswich) have both been named in an 18-man squad. Graham's other selection problem is whether to recall striker Chris Armstrong, who missed the 5-2 FA Cup win over Watford through suspension - just six days after scoring a hat-trick against Everton. His replacement, Steffen Iversen, scored twice in the cup tie and it could mean Les Ferdinand being left out.
