Hugo Lloris will miss Tottenham’s trip to Swansea City through illness, according to the club.

The Spurs skipper is replaced by former Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm. He and Ben Davies will face their former club at the Liberty Stadium. Jan Vertonghen will deputise as captain.

Victor Wanyama misses out — he injured his back against Burnley at the weekend — so Moussa Sissoko starts. Heung-Min Son also comes in for Vincent Janssen.

Tottenham could either play Sissoko in central midfield with Dembele, meaning Eric Dier would drop to centre back in a 3-4-3 formation, or Sissoko could be deployed as one of the three attacking midfielders behind Son in a 4-2-3-1 system.
