    Could be a tough game this. Stoke are hard to beat at the Brittania and with their very vocal crowd behind them will be a stern test, but a test we should overcome . . . . .

    Stoke City host Tottenham Hotspur at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday 11th December in the 15th round of 2011-12 Premier League matches (14th game for Spurs).



    The Potters have made a solid start to the season and are currently in 8th place in the table on 18 points, while Spurs are having their best start to a season since 1960-61 and are in third place with 31 of the last 33 points on offer having been won.



    This will be the 82nd time the two teams have met and the second meeting of the season after the Football League (Carling) Cup game at Stoke in September.



    The first meeting came at the Victoria Ground when Stoke City were playing as Stoke FC in the old first round of the FA Cup in February 1896 in a match Stoke won 5-0.



    Stoke became one of the 12 founding members of the Football League in 1888 and the clubs were drawn together in the third round of the FA Cup in February 1899 at the Victoria Ground with Stoke winning 4-1.



    The first match at White Hart Lane between the clubs was a friendly played in March 1900 with Spurs, then Champions of the Southern League, beating Stoke 6-0.



    Spurs joined the Football League for the 1908-09 season, replacing Stoke who had resigned at the end of the previous season for financial reasons. The clubs didn't meet in a League match until April 1920 in the Second Division with Tottenham winning 2-0 at the Lane and 3-1 at the Victoria Ground.



    The first meeting in Division One came in March 1923 at Stoke which resulted in a 0-0 draw. Spurs won the reverse fixture at the Lane a week later 3-1.



    The clubs met for five seasons in the Second Division between 1928 to 1933 and for two seasons in Division One from 1934 to 1935.



    After the Second World War, the clubs met in the modern FA Cup third round in January 1947 at White Hart Lane which resulted in a 2-2 draw with Stoke winning the replay 1-0 thanks to a Stanley Matthews goal.



    Three years later, Spurs beat Stoke 1-0 away in the third round.



    Spurs were Football League Champions in 1950-51 and beat Stoke 6-1 at home but could only draw 0-0 away during that season.



    Every League game played between Spurs and Stoke since WW2 has taken place in the Top Flight, except for season 1977-78 when Spurs spent a single season in Division Two, beating Stoke 3-1 in both matches.



    The clubs met in the FA Cup in January 1976 with a 1-1 draw at the Lane followed by a 2-1 win for Stoke in the replay.



    Tottenham Hotspur were founder members of the Premier League in 1992-93 but Stoke City's first season in the competition came in 2008-09 with Stoke winning 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium and Spurs winning 3-1 at the Lane.



    During 2009-10, Stoke won 1-0 at White Hart Lane with Spurs winning 2-1 at the Britannia.



    Last season, Spurs did the "double" over Stoke, winning the away fixture 2-1 with a brace of goals from Gareth Bale and the home fixture 3-2 in April with a brace from Peter Crouch and a Luka Modric goal.



    The teams met for the first time in the Football League (Carling) Cup 3rd round in September 2011 at Stoke and the match finished in a goalless draw after extra time. Stoke went on to win the penalty shoot-out 7-6. Spurs youngster Massimo Luongo penalty was saved by Thomas Sorensen.



    Peter Crouch moved to Stoke City during the summer along with fellow team-mates Jonathan Woodgate and Wilson Palacios, where they joined another former Spurs player, Matthew Ethrington.



    Overall, Spurs have won 41 games, Stoke have won 22 games and the remaining 18 matches of the 81 played have been drawn.

    No Woodgate or Paul Allen either Lee. These were images I could find mate & the list of both club players is quite a long one so I stuck at these half dozen. . . .

    Quite nervous about this game, unbeaten in 11 games means were probably due to lose 1, really really hope not but i can see a little 1-0 smash and grab coming from somewhere. Hope am sooooooooo wrong but like i say am a bit nervous about this 1!!

    Stoke v Tottenham


    By Jonathan Pearce
    BBC Match of the Day commentator


    TEAM NEWS

    Stoke pair Rory Delap and Jermaine Pennant could return after missing the win over Everton with minor injuries.

    Andy Wilkinson injured his back in training and faces a fitness test, while goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen is fit after mild concussion.

    Tottenham's Gareth Bale, Jermain Defoe and Sandro are all doubts for Sunday's game, as is captain Ledley King.

    They remain without defender Michael Dawson and midfielders Tom Huddlestone and Niko Kranjcar.

    MATCH PREVIEW

    The old master visits his protégé as Harry Redknapp goes for a Bournemouth reunion. Tony Pulis took his first management steps as Harry's assistant at Dean Court in 1991 and took over when Redknapp left for West Ham a year later. They remain firm friends and will no doubt swap Europa League yarns after the game.

    But while Stoke have saved their best for Europe, Tottenham clearly can't wait to get out of the competition so they can concentrate on clinching a top-three place.
    If they avoid defeat at the Britannia they'll stretch their unbeaten league run to 12 matches - their best run since 1984/85. It is the finest Spurs side since Terry Venables' FA Cup winners and has the potential to get even better.

    They've won six successive league victories for the first time since 1990. Their attacking play is sumptuous. Scott Parker has added the missing defensive quality from the heart of midfield and Brad Friedel is their most consistent keeper in recent years.

    But there will be trepidation over this trip. Old boys Peter Crouch , Matthew Etherington, Wilson Palacios and Jon Woodgate lie in wait with points to prove. Redknapp has respect for Kenwyne Jones and Ricardo Fuller after managing them on the South Coast.

    Stoke may have suffered from hiccups this season as they've tried to juggle Thursday European football and Sunday Premier League action, but they've won their last two top-flight games and rediscovered the resilience that deserted them in the early autumn.

    They also beat Spurs in the Carling Cup this season and know they can probe away at Tottenham's Achilles heel: 36% of Stoke goals this season have come from headers. That's the highest rate in the Premier League. Tottenham have conceded 31% of their goals from headers. That's also the highest in the division.

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head
    • This is the 81st meeting between the sides. Tottenham have won 40, Stoke 22 and there have been 18 draws.
    • Tottenham have won on their last two visits to the Britannia Stadium in the league by the same scoreline, 2-1.
    • There have been three red cards and three penalties in the three Premier League meetings between Stoke and Tottenham at the Britannia.
    • They drew 0-0 after extra-time in the Carling Cup third round earlier this season with Stoke winning 7-6 on pens.

    Stoke
    • Stoke are eighth in the table despite scoring only 14 goals in their 14 matches this season - only Wigan and West Brom have scored less.
    • Only five of those 14 goals this campaign have been scored from open play.
    • Their only two shots on target at Everton last week were from their two centre-halves.

    Tottenham
    • Tottenham's record of six successive league wins is their best since 1990.
    • Their record of 11 matches unbeaten is their best since they managed it under Gerry Francis in October to December 1995.
    • Spurs have seen more opponents sent off against them (four) than any other Premier League team this season.
    • They have averaged more shots on target per game (7.4) this season than any other top-flight club, including Man City.
    • Gareth Bale has scored four and assisted four goals in his last five Premier League appearances.
    • Tottenham have won their last three Premier League away games - they have never won four in a row on the road.
