A look at which Tottenham players are and aren’t available to face Arsenal in the North London Derby on Sunday afternoon.
Danny Rose (knee)
Rose has been out with a knee injury since January and while he’s gradually integrating with the first team in training, Mauricio Pochettino isn’t 100% convinced that he’ll be ready to face Arsenal.
“It’s so difficult. Next Sunday will be three months since he was injured so we will see,” said Pochettino.
“Today he started to do some things with the group. We have been careful with him and he is in a good way.
“We hope he will be available soon. Will he be ready for Arsenal? It’s so difficult to say.
“We need to check him and he needs to feel the feeling of competition of being out for three months.
“But the door is not closed and we are flexible.”
Erik Lamela (hip)
Lamela has been out since November with a hip injury he picked up in training and is booked in for surgery after failing to respond to treatment.
He won’t play for Spurs again this season and therefore will not feature in the North London Derby.
Michel Vorm (knee)
The goalkeeper is set to be fit for the North London Derby after returning to full training.
Mousa Dembele (ankle)
Dembele is a doubt for the clash on Sunday after suffering an ankle injury against Crystal Palace midweek and being subbed off at half time.
Harry Winks (ankle/foot)
Winks is out for the entire season after being stretchered off during Spurs’ 2-0 win over Burnley earlier in April.
“It will be difficult for him to play again this season. He has done scans and after that we will see what the real problem is,” said Pochettino.
“We hope it is no big issue but he twisted his ankle and now we need to see what happened. We need to see the results of the scan and then to start his recovery.”
