Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Glenn Hoddle reports that the squad is as healthy as it has been for some time as he prepares to take on Leeds United at the Lane on Sunday.

Christian Ziege is available again after a seven-week absence with a calf injury and Ledley King looks likely to recover from the virus that kept him out of Sven Goran Eriksson's England get-together earlier this week.

That means only Neil Sullivan (broken thumb), Anthony Gardner (knee) and Alton Thelwell (groin) are still sidelined.

"We're relatively okay on the injury front," said Glenn at this afternoon's press conference at Spurs Lodge. "We've just got Neil Sullivan and Anthony Gardner out.

"Christian has come through a couple of reserve games, so he's back in the fold.

"Ledley's had a virus all week and was out Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. He did a bit yesterday and today. We've now got to see what his energy levels are.

"We've got a healthier squad than we've had for a long time."
