Tottenham count walking wounded ahead of Arsenal clash

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he could be without several influential players for this weekend's north London derby at Arsenal. Redknapp revealed after the FA Cup match with Stevenage that he had been forced to exclude Luka Modric, Adebayor and Benoit Assou-Ekotto due to a mixture of injury and illness.

"Benoit had a small operation at the start of the week so he wasn't available," Redknapp said.

"He should be fit but we will have to see with Adebayor. He did his knee on Friday morning. He twisted it. We thought he might have opened his ligament up but it's not too bad.

"Luka had an unbelievable temperature. He was really ill this week. That left us short. Ledley King was on the bench and he wasn't fit.

"Niko Kranjcar had been rough all week as well. He only came in and trained (on Saturday)."
