Tanguy Ndombele and Jan Vertonghen are both injury doubts for Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of Tottenham at London rivals West Ham on Saturday lunchtime.
The Belgian defender hasn’t featured for Spurs since the 5-0 Champions League victory against Red Star Belgrade due to a hamstring problem and missed Belgian’s EURO 2020 qualifiers against Russia and Cyprus last week.
Meanwhile, Ndombele is still nursing with a groin injury he suffered against Sheffield United before the international break. The midfielder was called into the France squad, but didn’t feature in either of their European Championship qualifiers.
Elsewhere, Erik Lamela (hamstring) and Hugo Lloris (elbow) both remain sidelined for Spurs, whilst goalkeeper Michel Vorm suffered a fresh calf strain in training on Monday and won’t return to training until next month, meaning either Brandon Austin or Alfie Whiteman could be named on the bench as back-up to Paulo Gazzaniga.
Mourinho has no other injury concerns as he looks to start with three points at the London Stadium.
