Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp fears that former Arsenal star Emmanuel Adebayor will miss Sunday's crunch north London derby clash.

The Togo international had to sit out Sunday's FA Cup fifth round clash at Stevenage, which ended goalless, after twisting a knee in training last week.

In addition, Luka Modric was absent with flu while Benoit Assou-Ekotto had a groin operation a week ago. Rafael van der Vaart and Sandro also missed the game at Stevenage and are doubts for Sunday's derby.

Redknapp explained: "Benoit had a small operation at the start of the week so he wasn't available. He should be fit but we will have to see with Adebayor. He did his knee on Friday morning. He twisted it. We thought he might have opened his ligament up but it's not too bad.

"Luka had an unbelievable temperature. He was really ill this week. That left us short. Ledley King was on the bench and he wasn't fit. Niko Kranjcar had been rough all week as well. He only came in and trained (on Saturday)."

Spurs go into the Arsenal game 10 points ahead of the Gunners with only 13 games to go. Spurs are 1/20 to finish in the top four and 12/5 to win the FA Cup while Arsene Wenger's team are currently 13/8 to claim a top-four finish.
