Tottenham Hotspur team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Arsenal

Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham Hotspur's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League North London derby against Arsenal.

Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to inflict more misery on their out-of-form neighbours Arsenal when the two sides meet in the North London derby on Sunday.

Up to 2,000 fans will be treated to what is always a notable day in the English football calendar, and the returning Spurs supporters will be confident of seeing their side secure the bragging rights.

Jose Mourinho's side are on the longest unbeaten run in the league and head into the weekend at the top of the table, whereas Arsenal have won just one of their last six top-flight outings.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the blockbuster showdown.



Harry Kane

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: December 6 (vs. Arsenal)

Tottenham's talisman Harry Kane has a question mark hanging over his head for this match after missing the midweek game against LASK Linz. However, Mourinho said after that game that he is confident Kane will be fit in time for this derby.


Toby Alderweireld

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: December 6 (vs. Arsenal)

Mourinho confirmed that "there is a chance" Alderweireld could return in time for this match after picking up a groin injury against Man City last month. The Belgian is due to return ahead of schedule, although Mourinho is unlikely to take any risks over his fitness ahead of such a busy festive period.


Sergio Reguilon

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: December 6 (vs. Arsenal)

Sergio Reguilon was absent from training earlier this week and subsequently missed the Europa League trip to Austria, but Mourinho has suggested that the Spanish full-back will be in contention for the derby.



Carlos Vinicius

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: December 6 (vs. Arsenal)

The injury doubt hanging over Kane shines more of a spotlight on Carlos Vinicius's fitness, but he too is carrying a knock and is a minor doubt ahead of this match after missing out in midweek.


Erik Lamela

Status: Out
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: Unknown

Sunday's game will come too soon for Erik Lamela, who is still suffering from a foot injury which he has struggled to shake off. It may be that the Argentine misses most of the festive period.


TOTTENHAM'S SUSPENSION LIST

Spurs have no players suspended for the North London derby.
