TOTTENHAM will be without defender Sebastien Bassong for the visit of Sunderland today (Saturday).

The centre-back has a hamstring injury and joins Carlo Cudicini, Giovani and Luka Modric on the injury list.

Vedran Corluka is also a doubt after missing training through illness, while winger Aaron Lennon faces a late fight to be fit after an ankle injury.

They are boosted by the news that Jermain Defoe returns from a suspension.
