Tottenham are likely to be without Mousa Dembele after the midfielder was replaced on Wednesday night after spraining his ankle, with doubts surrounding a few others.

In all, Tottenham have five players listed as injured, although Harry Kane is back and the media expect him to be on the bench on Sunday having not played for the Shadow dwellers since September. Spurs might need to call on him to start, however.

Kane is a huge miss for them but at the back without Toby Alderweireld, they are a completely different animal – more Bambi than beast.

He is a ‘major doubt’ for the game.

There is also a doubt over Eric Lamela who has a hip problem.

Moussa Sissoko is suspended for the game after receiving a three-match ban for a naughty elbow.

Our resident Tottenham ‘expert’ (she’s married to a Spurs fan) expects them to line up as follows:


Rose Vertonghen Dier Walker,

Wanyama Alli,

Son Eriksen lamela,


If we play to our potential, we’re gonna destroy them.
