Over the past couple of weeks, Tottenham Hotspur has had their fair share of injuries but, there could be light at the end of the tunnel, especially with the recent international break to ease the bumps and bruises. The thing is, who has benefited from missing the twice weekly rough and tumble of Premier and Champions League action and who is definitely unavailable for Saturday’s game?
Victor Wanyama – hamstring
The 27-year-old defensive midfielder tweaked his hammy before the international break. However, the good news is that the Kenya international should be in the starting line-up.
Vincent Janssen – Foot
Surgery on a nagging foot injury is believed to have been successful. However, I’ll be amazed if we see the 24-year-old striker this side of Christmas.
Danny Rose – Groin strain
Danny missed England’s games against Croatia and Spain having tweaked his groin before the international call-up.
This weekend’s game at the London Stadium has come a week too early and will not feature.
Jan Vertonghen – hamstring
The Belgian international missed the Cardiff City fixture a fortnight ago and is not expected to return to full training until the middle or end of November.
Dele Alli – Hamstring
Recent reports suggest Dele is expected to begin ball training as early as next week.
Christian Eriksen – Abdominal
The recent break will have been a blessing in disguise hence there is no reason why Christian shouldn’t be up and running.
The club confirmed earlier today that Christian has returned to full training.
Mousa Dembele – Thigh
Having been out of action for the last two matches, Mousa has recovered and will be available for selection.
