• Muamba still in critical condition

Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Bolton was called off after 41 minutes following the sudden collapse of Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba, who is now critically ill in a London hospital after undergoing a cardiac arrest during the game.

Some Spurs players were visibly upset at the 23-year-old's collapse, but the club have confirmed that they have no plans to postpone their Premier League game against Tony Pulis' men because of the incident.

A Spurs statement read: "The club can confirm that Wednesday evening's Premier League fixture against Stoke City at White Hart Lane will go ahead as scheduled, kicking off at 7.45pm.''
