Tottenham Hotspur head to the Brittania to face off against Stoke City today. Spurs make one change from last week's win, sending Fryers to the bench and recalling Michael Dawson who will captain the side. For Stoke, the big news is the absence of Charlie Adam, which is very encouraging indeed for the ligaments in our players' ankles.

It's nice to see Harry Kane get the chance to keep his hot streak alive, though it is a little disappointing that we still haven't gotten a chance to see him partner Soldado up top. Sandro remains trapped in Tim Sherwood's doghouse as we persist with the Chadli-Paulinho midfield that's worked incredibly whatever over the past few weeks.
For Stoke, Muniesa and Wilson are very much second choice members of their back line, which should hopefully mean good things for the Spurs attack.
