Tim Sherwood hopes Emmanuel Adebayor will be fit to face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday as the forward battles to overcome a heel injury.
The Spurs striker has missed the last two games and the head coach said: “We’ve got a doubt over Adebayor still, he’s got a gash on his heel. We’re hoping he’ll be fit to be in the squad.
“He’s confident that he’ll be ok. He knows his body better than we do so let’s hope he’s right with that prediction.
“With the long-term ones, [Vlad] Chiriches will play for the Under-21s this evening, he’s on his way back.
“[Erik] Lamela and [Etienne] Capoue are still a way off. Kyle Walker won’t be fit. He’s not a long way off, he’s making progress but I’m not sure, we can’t put a time on it yet. We’re just playing it by ear and seeing when he feels a bit better.”
