Adebayor missing for Swansea clash

Emmanuel Adebayor will again be absent for Tottenham when they return to Premier League action at Swansea.

The Togo striker returned to Africa before Thursday's Europa League match against Besiktas due to personal reasons and is unavailable once more this weekend.

Jan Vertonghen, Harry Kane, Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Christian Eriksen come back into contention after being rested for the trip to Turkey, while Kyle Naughton should be fit after a heel injury.

Eric Dier is also expected to be okay after a toe complaint ruled him out on Thursday, while Kyle Walker could make his Premier League comeback after coming through 75 minutes of the 1-0 defeat unscathed.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Friedel, Walker, Naughton, Dier, Rose, Davies, Fazio, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Chiriches, Stambouli, Dembele, Paulinho, Mason, Capoue, Bentaleb, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Lennon, Townsend, Soldado, Kane

Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will miss Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham after having his one-match ban confirmed by the Football Association.

The Poland international had his appeal claim of wrongful dismissal rejected following an independent regulatory commission hearing on Tuesday.

Fabianski was sent off in Swansea's 3-1 Premier League defeat to West Ham at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Swansea have announced they will be appealing the red card shown to goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski during Sunday's Barclays Premier League defeat to West Ham.

The Poland international was dismissed in the 68th minute of the match at Upton Park for impeding West Ham substitute Diafra Sakho as he burst through on goal.

However, Swansea manager Garry Monk said after the 3-1 loss that he expected the club to appeal the decision, saying there was both a handball by Sakho in the build-up and that it was not a clear goalscoring opportunity either, and on Monday the Welsh club confirmed they had been in touch with the FA.

Swansea City can confirm that the club will be appealing the red card issued to goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski against West Ham on Sunday. The club officially informed the Football Association by today's 1pm deadline.

The Polish international, who faces a one-match ban, was shown a straight red card by referee Chris Foy for impeding Diafra Sakho and denying a clear goalscoring opportunity in the 68th minute of the defeat at the Boleyn Ground. The FA will make a decision on the appeal ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League clash with Spurs at the Liberty Stadium.

Taylor sidelined for Swansea after fifth booking

Neil Taylor misses Swansea's Premier League trip to West Ham on Sunday after picking up his fifth booking of the season against QPR in midweek.

Defender Taylor has been ever-present in the league this season and, with no natural cover at left-back, Dwight Tiendalli or Jazz Richards are likely to deputise with Angel Rangel restored on the right after being rested from the Rangers victory.

Swansea manager Garry Monk will assess how Leon Britton came through his first start of the season after three months out with knee trouble before finalising his side at Upton Park, but Argentina defender Federico Fernandez is still not fit enough to make the matchday squad despite returning to training this week after a calf problem.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Rangel, Bartley, Williams, Richards, Britton, Ki, Montero, Routledge, Sigurdsson, Bony, Tremmel, Amat, Richards, Shelvey, Carroll, Dyer, Gomis, Emnes, Barrow, Tiendalli, Fulton.
