Tottenham playmaker is unavailable for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League game against Wigan due to a niggling hip injury.

Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is in contention after recovering from illness and a back injury, but midfielder Jake Livermore is a doubt after suffering an ankle injury in Wednesday's defeat to Norwich.

Long-term absentees Scott Parker (Achilles), Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Younes Kaboul (both knee) remain sidelined.

Provisional squad: Friedel, Lloris, Cudicini, Gomes, Naughton, Walker, Caulker, Gallas, Dawson, Vertonghen, Livermore, Parrett, Huddlestone, Mason, Carroll, Sandro, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Townsend, Bale, Falque, Dempsey, Obika, Defoe, Adebayor.
