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).

Teddy Sheringham and Dean Richards will sit out the first leg of our Worthington Cup semi-final against Chelsea tonight.

Skipper Teddy serves the first of his three-match ban after his red card against Ipswich Town on December 22.

He will also miss Saturday's Premiership return against Ipswich at Portman Road and our rearranged FA Cup tie at Coventry City on January 16 - but at least he will be available for the second leg against Chelsea.

Defender 'Deano' is cup-tied after playing in the competition for Southampton before his switch to Spurs.

On the injury front, Goran Bunjevcevic returned to action after a thigh strain with 45 minutes for the reserves on Monday night but Stephen Clemence is still ruled out by a groin problem.

Meanwhile, long-termers Stephen Carr (knee) and Gary Doherty (broken leg) are continuing on the road back to full fitness.

Chelsea will be without suspended Graeme Le Saux while William Gallas is a doubt after collecting a leg injury in Saturday's FA Cup tie at Norwich.

Marcel Desailly has declared himself fit to play, despite being substituted in the second-half at Carrow Road and both Emmanuel Petit and winger Boudewijn Zenden are fit to return.
