Harry Redknapp could turn to his youngsters to bolster his squad for the North London Derby against Arsenal on Wednesday.
Spurs have a lengthy injury list, with Niko Kranjcar the latest to be sidelined and Wilson Palacios is suspended after picking up his tenth booking of the season on Sunday.
Aaron Lennon and Jermaine Jenas will also miss out, whilst Vedran Corluka is a doubt.
Ledley King is expected to reurn to bolster the back four, whilst Danny Rose and Jake Livermore are in contention to play as Spurs begin a tough run-in with a series of matches.
Harry Redknapp claimed; “It may be an opportunity for one or two of our younger players to show what they can do.
“That’s the way I’m thinking at the moment.”
