Confirmed: Spurs midfielder available for Burnley despite ankle concern

Harry Winks is available to play for Tottenham against Burnley this weekend despite seemingly suffering an ankle injury at Old Trafford in midweek.

Spurs fell to a first defeat under Jose Mourinho on Wednesday, losing 2-1 to Manchester United despite a Dele Alli wonder goal. Midway through the second half, Winks went down holding his ankle and was substituted soon after.

Despite being replaced, Winks was moving well after treatment, but there were still concerns he had picked up an injury. The midfielder has spent lengthy spells on the sidelines in the past with ankle problems.

But it has now been confirmed that Winks is available to face Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Tottenham have released their weekly team news update on Twitter, and there are no new injury concerns. Ben Davies (ankle), Erik Lamela (hamstring), Hugo Lloris (elbow) and Michel Vorm (calf) all remain unavailable.

It will be interesting to see if Winks is picked in the starting line-up this weekend. His midfield partnership with Moussa Sissoko did not work against Manchester United, so Mourinho may prefer Eric Dier or Tanguy Ndombele.
