Tottenham’s Vedran Corluka and Wilson Palacios were passed fit for the Barclays Premier League clash against Everton after shaking off the effects of the virus that swept through the club this week.
Corlucka came in for Benoit Assou-Ekotto from the team that defeated Bolton in the FA Cup in midweek, while Niko Kranjcar came in for David Bentley in the other change.
Everton boss David Moyes made five changes from the side that lost to Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League, and Louis Saha was not in the matchday squad.
Tottenham: Gomes, Corluka, Bassong, Dawson, Bale, Kranjcar, Huddlestone, Palacios, Modric, Pavlyuchenko, Defoe.
Subs: Alnwick, Kaboul, Crouch, Gudjohnsen, Kyle Walker, Dervite, Assou-Ekotto.
