Sebastien Bassong is a doubt for Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Manchester United on Saturday evening.

The central defender was forced off injured while making his international debut for Cameroon.

With Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson still sidelined, Harry Redknapp is expected to move Vedran Corluka into the heart of the defence, if Bassong does not recover in time for the encounter at White Hart Lane.
