Oussama Assaidi will hope to push for a first Stoke start in two and a half months when Tottenham visit the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

The on-loan Liverpool winger, who has scored four goals this season, returned last week from knee ligament damage as a substitute in the 1-1 draw against Cardiff.

Defender Robert Huth (knee) and winger Matthew Etherington (back) are the Potters' only absentees.

Tottenham will be able to call upon captain Michael Dawson at Stoke.

The defender has not featured since March 30 due to a hamstring complaint but is back in the squad, although Jan Vertonghen (ankle) and Etienne Capoue (foot) remain absent.

The pair are not ready despite returning to training this week, while Kyle Walker (pelvis) and Erik Lamela (back) are again absent.

Provisional squads

Stoke: Begovic, Sorensen, Wilson, Shawcross, Pieters, Cameron, Wilkinson, Muniesa, Shotton, Whelan, Ireland, Nzonzi, Palacios, Adam, Walters, Arnautovic, Odemwingie, Crouch, Guidetti, Assaidi.

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