Spurs are first up for the new year at Fratton Park, with Pompey hoping to avenge their defeat at the lane.
Pompey will be looking to avenge their first away defeat of the season back in October, somewhat unjustly after Zokora's theatrical dive earned a dodgy penalty at White Hart lane for the second year in a row. Martin Jol conveniently added that Zokora 'interpreted Mendes' tackle' and therefore it was a correct decision, no Stuart Pearce home truths from this Dutchman.
Kanu will be looking for a recall against Spurs after a well earned rest at Bolton, however after being the only fit striker for some time, he now has Andy Cole back in contention and scoring goals, and fans favourite Todorov has returned from his ill-fated loan spell at Wigan.
In defence it should be a case of more of the same, Primus and Pamarot both left the field early at Bolton, but this was tactical rather than for injury.
Always takes abuse against his old side after defecting to the enemy at Arsenal, he will be out to shut the away contingent up with another assured display at the back, which if rumour is to believed, has caught the eye of a certain Jose Mourinho.
Berbatov should be over the virus which confined him to the bench against Spurs, Defoe will be looking to score against Pompey yet again, he always seems to!
The man from the Ivory Coast will get a welome usually saved for ex-scummers after his dive in October, and how copes with it could affect his teams drive in midfield
2-0 to the yids last season at Fratton in the first game of the season, 2-1 at the lane in October
Current form favours Pompey, Spurs haven't travelled well so far this season, and Pompey have been more than solid at Fratton
