Emmanuel Adebayor could return to action against Manchester City

Having attempted to sell the striker in the summer, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas ordered the striker to train with the club's reserves and gave him time off following the death of his brother in Togo.

Adebayor has, however, travelled to Tiraspol for the Group K clash, where Aaron Lennon could make his first start after recovering from a foot injury.

Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend and Paulinho have been rested, while Etienne Capoue (ankle), Danny Rose (toe) and Younes Kaboul (adductor) remain out.
