Emmanuel Adebayor is a doubt for Tottenham's trip to title-chasing Liverpool on Sunday.

The Togolese striker will have a gash on his heel assessed before the trip to Anfield, although head coach Tim Sherwood is hopeful he will be fit to be part of the squad.

Kyle Walker continues to miss out with a groin complaint, while Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue and Vlad Chiriches remain absent, although the latter is set to play for the Under-21s against Arsenal on Friday.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could stick with an unchanged side for the visit of Tottenham.

With no new injuries to contend with the Reds boss has to decide whether to again send out the team which beat Sunderland 2-1 on Wednesday.

Only defender Jose Enrique (knee) remains unavailable.

Provisional squads

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Flanagan, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez, Jones, Sakho, Cissokho, Toure, Lucas, Alberto, Coutinho, Aspas, Teixeira, Moses.

Spurs: Lloris, Friedel, Archer, Naughton, Vertonghen, Kaboul, Dawson, Fryers, Rose, Sandro, Chadli, Veljkovic, Eriksen, Sigurdsson, Bentaleb, Dembele, Lennon, Townsend, Kane, Soldado, Adebayor.
