Spurs assistant manager Kevin Bond revealed that Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe remain as major doubts for Monday night’s clash with Liverpool. Both players have been struggling with hamstring injuries and while the timing of the game gives them an extra chance to recover, it looks as if both will miss out.
“Aaron and Jermain are being treated, both are extremely doubtful for Monday but obviously we’ll give them every chance,” Bond said.
“The medical staff are working hard to see if they can get them there.”
Kevin also revealed that Kyle Walker should be fine for the match and although Sky Sports intimated that Rafael van der Vaart would be OK for Monday, Bond wasn’t so sure.
“Rafa went off with a calf strain and it’s a bit early to say what his prospects are for Monday. Kyle Walker should be fine,” he added.
With Sandro back on Monday night, the Brazilian should step into to Lennon’s boots but if both VDV and Defoe fail to make it then it should mean a Spurs debut for Louis Saha.
