Tottenham Hotspur team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester United

Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham Hotspur's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash with Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho has the perfect chance to truly announce himself as Tottenham Hotspur manager by beating former club Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Sacked by the Red Devils in December 2018, the 55-year-old has enjoyed a perfect start at the North London club, winning three games in a row.

United, meanwhile, continue to struggle under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, managing just four wins from their opening 13 league games.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham's latest injury and suspension news ahead of this fixture.
