West Ham United face a shortage of options up front as they seek a first win at Tottenham since 1999, with Frederic Piquionne (foot) and Demba Ba both doubtful.
In other circumstances, manager Avram Grant would look to on-loan striker Robbie Keane, who has returned to full fitness following a calf injury. The Republic or Ireland international made a substitute appearance in last week's defeat at Stoke but is ineligible against his parent club. Jack Collison (knee) and Junior Stanislas miss out but Gary O'Neil returns.
