New manager Tim Sherwood looks set to be without winger Aaron Lennon, who has an abdominal injury, for Tottenham's game against West Brom on Thursday.

Mousa Dembele limped off early in the second half of Sunday's 3-2 win at Southampton, but the midfielder's twisted ankle is not too serious.

Andros Townsend (hamstring), Younes Kaboul (thigh) and Jan Vertonghen (ankle) are out, while Paulinho is suspended and Harry Kane has a back complaint.

Striker Victor Anichebe is West Brom's only injury doubt ahead of their Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham.

The forward is struggling with a groin problem ahead of the Boxing Day encounter but is caretaker head coach Keith Downing's only injury doubt.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster returned from a foot injury in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Hull and reported no ill effects.

Provisional squads

Spurs: Lloris, Friedel, Archer, Gomes, Walker, Fredericks, Naughton, Rose, Fryers, Dawson, Chiriches, Capoue, Sandro, Dembele, Sigurdsson, Eriksen, Chadli, Bentaleb, Lamela, Holtby, Adebayor, Defoe, Soldado, Coulthirst.

West Brom: Foster, Myhill, Daniels, Jones, Ridgewell, Olsson, McAuley, Lugano, Brunt, Sessegnon, Amalfitano, Mulumbu, Berahino, Yacob, Anichebe, Vydra, Long, Anelka, Morrison, Popov, Dawson, Reid, Sinclair, Gera, Rosenberg.
