Stoke v Tottenham team news

Stoke: The Potters are without a range of players who would have started this evening, limiting O'Neill's options somewhat.

Former Chelsea ace John Obi Mikel heads the list that includes Angus Gunn, Sam Clucas, Tyrese Campbell and Joe Allan.

Tottenham: Japhet Tanganga and Erik Lamela are confirmed to be out with injuries, while Giovani Lo Celso left the game at the weekend with an injury problem and is unlikely to feature here.

Otherwise, Spurs have a clean bill of health. Gareth Bale has been underwhelming so far but will see this as a big chance to kick-start his comeback at long last.

Our prediction: Stoke v Tottenham

Stoke will be ruing the fact that a clean bill of health and full stadium would have massively boosted their chances. Instead, they must go toe-to-toe with an elite side with half a squad.

Spurs may rotate a few players, but Mourinho is expected to go strong at the business end of the competition.

Any fringe players who do start should be desperate to take their chance to impress, with Dele Alli and Bale high up the list.

Our prediction: Stoke 0-2 Tottenham
