Tottenham boss Juande Ramos will field skipper Ledley King tonight at UEFA Cup opponents Udinese.
Rejecting suggestions it would be better to reserve his injury-plagued skipper for the League, Ramos said: "The problem is that it is not possible to play Vedran Corluka in the UEFA Cup.
"We need to think of both competitions. So if Corluka is cup-tied, we must use the others in this competition. The most important at the moment is the UEFA Cup. On Friday, I will say the Premier League."
