It's a case of 'as you were' for Harry Redknapp as he prepares the squad for Sunday's trip to Everton.

It's a case of 'as you were' for Harry Redknapp as he prepares the squad for Sunday's trip to Everton.

The manager will again be without the services of Jonathan Woodgate (groin), Ledley King (hamstring), Luka Modric (fractured fibula) and Carlo Cudicini (pelvis, wrist).

Niko Kranjcar is available again after being cup-tied for Tuesday night's Carling Cup tie at United.

"I made five changes at Old Trafford and everyone who started last week is okay, I've the same group available for Everton," reported Harry after training on Friday.

The news remains positive on Luka, who has been training with the Academy squad at Spurs Lodge.

"Luka's getting closer," said Harry. "He's training with the youth team at the moment and hopefully he'll be back in a few weeks, ready to play. He's a top player for us and we'd love to have him back and playing again."

Giovani dos Santos is also back in full training after his recent ankle injury. "Gio's just short of match practice now," added Harry. "He's getting fitter but he needs a game.

"He's been out a long time and I'm looking forward to when he's fully fit. He's a good young player and he was in great form when he got injured. It was a big blow both for us and for him when he got injured."
