Spurs v Latics - Early Team News & Injury Update

Wigan Athletic travel south tomorrow (Saturday) to White Hart Lane where they will face Tottenham Hotspur, Roberto Martinez has no fresh injury worries ahead of the game, but it looks like Antolin Alcaraz, Ryo Miyaichi and Albert Crusat will still be missing, James McArthur will be available for selection after serving a one game ban after picking up 5 yellow cards

Speaking about team selection Latics boss Roberto Martinez said - 'We're in a similar position to before the West Ham match just with one or two knocks from Tuesday night that won't disrupt the group too much.

'Antolin Alcaraz is recovering really well but won't be involved, Ryo Miyaichi is still 50/50 and Albert Crusat is still out with a knee problem.'

Latics probable - Al Habsi, Ramis, Caldwell, Figueroa, Boyce, Beausejour, McArthur, McCarthy, Maloney, Di Santo, Kone

Alcaraz likely to be out until the New Year!

Not sure we would play Sigurdsson in central midfield, I would expect Tom Huddlestone to partner Sandro. Most spurs fans would like to see Lloris start, but exect Friedel, whilst the same applies with wanting Adebayor, but expecting Defoe.
