League Cup team news: Spurs v Hull

Tottenham are likely to be without defenders Danny Rose and Younes Kaboul as they host Hull in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

Rose has a toe injury and Kaboul an adductor problem. Midfielder Etienne Capoue is expected to miss out as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury while defender Zeki Fryers (groin) is doubtful.

Manager Andre Villas-Boas will rotate his squad, meaning the likes of Erik Lamela, Brad Friedel, Jermain Defoe and even Emmanuel Adebayor, who has not played yet this season, could get run outs.

Hull are again operating at reduced capacity for their Capital One Cup fourth-round clash meeting Tottenham, their second visit to White Hart Lane in four days.

Allan McGregor (thigh), Danny Graham (knee), James Chester (hamstring) and Sone Aluko (calf) remain out, Jake Livermore cannot play against his parent club and Robert Koren and Robbie Brady are unlikely to be risked from the start.

Curtis Davies and Tom Huddlestone may also be confined to the bench as Steve Bruce looks to preserve them for league duty.

Provisional squads

Spurs: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Walker, Fryers, Naughton, Chiriches, Dawson, Vertonghen, Paulinho, Dembele, Sandro, Holtby, Lennon, Lamela, Eriksen, Townsend, Sigurdsson, Chadli, Adebayor, Defoe, Soldado, Kane.

Hull: Harper, Jakupovic, McShane, Faye, Davies, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Bruce, Boyd, Quinn, Brady, Huddlestone, Meyler, Koren, Sagbo, Gedo, Proschwitz, McLean.
