Kyle Walker-Peters is a major doubt for the North London derby on Sunday.

The 22-year-old, who has started all three of Tottenham’s Premier League this season, limped out of their shock defeat to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon with a hamstring problem and is now expected to miss the possibility of facing Arsenal for the first time in his short career.

Walker-Peters has made a steady start to the campaign, but after the sale of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid, he has made that right-back spot his own, starting three consecutive games his his boyhood club for the first time ever.

But Physio Room are reporting that the England Under-21 man has just a 25 per cent chance of being fit for the game at The Emirates after suffering the injury against the Magpies.

It leaves Mauricio Pochettino with a right-back crisis ahead of the visit to their arch rivals – with Moussa Sissoko, Eric Dier and an unfit Serge Aurier – who has returned to training with the first-team recently – the options for the Argentine.
