Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale a doubt for Norwich City game with ankle blow

Gareth Bale is battling to be fit for today's White Hart Lane clash with the Canaries after sustaining a knock late in the goalless draw at Sunderland.

Bale, who scored both goals when Spurs won at Carrow Road, was the subject of a solid tackle by Craig Gardner which left him nursing an ankle injury, and he could be rested with boss Harry Redknapp vowing to make changes.

Aaron Lennon is almost certain to make his first start in almost a month while Jermain Defoe could also start and Ledley King is back from a knee injury.
