Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp remains hopeful defender Sébastien Bassong will be fit for tomorrow evening's visit by Manchester United to White Hart Lane, despite the centre-back missing Cameroon's 2-1 win over Gabon on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old picked up a slight knee injury against the same opponents last weekend.

Fellow centre-back Ledley King is also confident of featuring after recovering from a groin injury he suffered against Birmingham before the international break. Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson remain sidelined.
