Ade's been out for about three weeks now with a heel injury (no wrestling jokes, plz), and Spurs have certainly missed him out there. Tim Sherwood announced that our beloved Togolese striker looks likely to have a role in the match, though who knows if he'll start or not:
"We'll continue to assess him as the week progresses and hopefully he'll then be back in contention against Sunderland... He's obviously been a big miss. He's been outstanding for us."
Good thing, too, since Roberto Soldado is still out with no return date. Who knows, we might again see Nacer Chadli playing at striker this weekend if Ade can't make it.
In other injury news, Jan Vertonghen (ankle), Paulinho (conjunctivitis, aka "pink eye"), Kyle Walker (groin), Etienne Capoue (ankle), Erik Lamela (back), and Vlad Chiriches (back) are also all at various levels of 90% fitness and it's unlikely we'll see any of them in action this weekend.
