There is expected to be a subdued atmosphere at White Hart Lane tomorrow after Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest at the weekend.

All eyes will be on the Tottenham Hotspur squad tomorrow evening to see how they have coped after Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest playing against them on Saturday night.

Manager Harry Redknapp has insisted that his squad are fully focused on their match against Stoke City, although he has offered those that do not feel mentally right to take part the opportunity to miss out.

Winger Aaron Lennon will play no part at White Hart Lane because of a hamstring injury, while loanee striker Emmanuel Adebayor is suffering with a similar complaint.

Visiting manager Tony Pulis has no injury worries ahead of the trip to North London, although Ricardo Fuller is absent as he continues to serve a suspension for his recent red card against Chelsea.

Hosting Spurs head into the match having lost their last three Premier League fixtures.

Current form:

Spurs: WDWLLL
Stoke: LLLWWL

Possible lineups:

Spurs: Friedel; Walker, Kaboul, King, Assou-Ekotto; Bale, Parker, Van der Vaart, Modric; Defoe, Saha

Stoke: Begovic; Wilkinson, Shawcross, Huth, Wilson; Shotton, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Crouch, Walters

Sports Mole says: 3-1
