Vlad Chiriches is the latest injury concern ahead of a game where Emmanuel Adebayor, Etienne Capoue, Danny Rose and Andros Townsend are all doubtful. The Romanian defender has made a favourable impression in the last two matches – one that has seemed unlikely in recent weeks but a back problem should mean that Kyle Naughton slots straight back in after suspension.
We have another training session this afternoon (Tuesday) and we’ll analyse everyone then,” said Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino.
“We have one day less than Chelsea to prepare, so we’ll analyse each case and then we’ll make a decision.”
