Jan Vertonghen will have to be very careful when Chris Hughton’s Brighton visit Wembley on Wednesday night.
That’s because the Belgian is one booking away from a suspension, and Tottenham can’t afford to lose him for the weekend trip to Manchester City.
Spurs are already down to just two centre-backs. Davinson Sanchez is still two games away from returning following his ban, while Toby Alderweireld will be sidelined through injury until February.
Mauricio Pochettino has suggested Cameron Carter-Vickers could be recalled from his loan spell with Championship side Sheffield United in January.
