Is Gareth Bale set to once again rip apart the Nerazzurri defence?
Tottenham look set to be without Emmanuel Adebayor, with the striker having suffered a knee injury during Sunday’s north London derby win over Arsenal.
Mousa Dembele also took a knock in that much but trained on Wednesday and is fit to face Inter.
Younes Kaboul, Sandro and Tom Huddlestone (all knee) and Clint Dempsey (calf) are unavailable.
The Serie A side have a number of injury problems to contend with as top-scorer Diego Milito (knee) is out for the season, while centre-backs Andrea Ranocchia (knee) and Walter Samuel (Achilles) are sidelined.

Tottenham have been on fine form domestically, having not lost in 12 league matches – their best unbeaten run in Premier League history.
Inter, meanwhile, have not so fared so well in their own league, having won just three of their last 12 Serie A matches as they sit in fourth, trying to remain in contention for a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Gareth Bale has also been enjoying himself in the league. The Welshman has scored seven goals in his last five league appearances for the club. He is 7/2 to score two or more goals with Coral.
Bale, even putting aside his current run of form, will bring back bad memories for the Italian side, as he memorably tormented the Nerazzurri in both of their group stage matches in the 2010-11 Champions League, particularly at San Siro as the flying winger scored a hat-trick despite Inter’s 4-3 win.
Inter do, however, have their own in-form striker as, despite often featuring off the bench, Rodrigo Palacio has been directly involved in 23 goals for his club this season, including all two of their goals scored in their comeback win over Catania on Sunday.
The Nerazzurri have been poor away from home recently, as they have only managed a paltry four points from their last eight away league games, also conceding 19 goals in the process.
