Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood expects to face a cagey Stoke City today.

Stoke arrive in north London on the back of a 5-1 defeat at Newcastle, and Sherwood reckons they will come to frustrate his team in the way West Brom did on Thursday.

"I can't see them coming here and being open to get beat like that again," Sherwood said of Stoke.

"We expect them to play pretty much the same (as West Brom) so hopefully we can show a little bit more quality in and around the final third and open them up."
