Three Tottenham stars have been ruled out of Sunday’s trip to Everton, while a key defender is rated doubtful for the game at Goodison Park.
Hugo Lloris is once again sidelined due to the dislocated elbow he suffered last month at Brighton, with Paulo Gazzaniga showing against Liverpool that he is a capable deputy.
Erik Lamela has been ruled out with the hamstring problem that kept him out at Anfield, while Danny Rose is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season on Merseyside last weekend.
Jan Vertonghen is a doubt with a hamstring injury, meaning that Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez are likely to continue at the heart of the defence.
Ben Davies should get the nod in Rose’s absence, although Ryan Sessegnon is pushing for a Spurs debut after ramping up his training this week, while Juan Foyth could replace Serge Aurier after the Ivory Coast star’s horrorshow at Anfield.
Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele are both being tipped to start at Goodison, with Christian Eriksen and Harry Winks stepping down to the bench.
Tottenham are in desperate need of a win after failing to claim victory any of their last three Premier League outings, dropping to 11th place in the table as a result.
