Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor ruled out of Capital One Cup tie against Norwich


Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt for Tottenham's Capital One Cup game at Norwich after he missed training yesterday with a stomach bug.

Mousa Dembele could also miss out thanks to the niggling hip injury and long-term absentees Scott Parker (Achilles), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) remain sidelined.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas will rest a number of his first-team players, meaning the likes of Hugo Lloris, Andros Townsend, Yago Falque and Kyle Naughton could all start at Carrow Road.

Provisional squad: Friedel, Lloris, Cudicini, Naughton, Walker, Caulker, Gallas, Dawson, Vertonghen, Smith, Livermore, Parrett, Dembele, Huddlestone, Dembele, Mason, Sandro, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Townsend, Bale, Falque, Dempsey, Defoe, Adebayor.
