Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor returns to the starting line-up for the visit of Sunderland on Monday after overcoming a gashed heel.

Vlad Chiriches and Paulinho also come back into Tim Sherwood's side, but Roberto Soldado and Jan Vertonghen miss out due to injury. Harry Kane also starts as Sherwood looks to have changed to a 4-4-2 formation.

For Sunderland, captain John O'Shea has been dropped to the bench, as has Connor Wickham, while Adam Johnson has earned a recall into Gus Poyet's line-up.
