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

Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham Hotspur's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League London derby against fellow high-fliers Chelsea.

Premier League leaders Tottenham Hotspur face a stern test of their title credentials this weekend when they make the trip across London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's side have won their last five games across all competitions, including a 2-0 triumph over Manchester City last weekend which took them to the top of the table.

Mourinho's latest return to Stamford Bridge sees him come up against a Chelsea side in fine form themselves, though, with his former protege Frank Lampard having steered them up to third in the table heading into gameweek 10.

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


Toby Alderweireld

Status: Out
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: December 16 (vs. Liverpool)

The one downside to last weekend's win over Manchester City was an injury to Toby Alderweireld, although the Belgian's groin problem is not quite as serious as first feared. Alderweireld could still be out for up to four weeks, though, so will miss this match.


Matt Doherty

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Coronavirus
Possible return date: November 29 (vs. Chelsea)

Mourinho confirmed that Matt Doherty was eligible to feature against Ludogorets on Thursday, but his absence from the matchday squad suggests that fitness is now an issue following a bout of coronavirus. The right-back is expected to be in contention for this match, though.


Hugo Lloris

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: November 29 (vs. Chelsea)

Hugo Lloris missed the win over Ludogorets in midweek, which may have been planned even before the skipper picked up a knock. Mourinho admitted playing him on Thursday would have been a slight risk, but he is expected to be available for this one.


Giovani Lo Celso

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: November 29 (vs. Chelsea)

Giovani Lo Celso was grouped in the same category as Lloris by Mourinho - players who missed out on Thursday due to minor problems but should have recovered fully in time for this weekend.


Steven Bergwijn

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: November 29 (vs. Chelsea)

Steven Bergwijn was another who only narrowly missed out in midweek after Mourinho deemed that playing him would be a risk. The winger is also expected to be back in contention here.


Erik Lamela

Status: Out
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: December 3 (vs. LASK Linz)

Erik Lamela is closing in on a return from his foot injury but this match will come too soon for him, and next week's Europa League clash with LASK will be a more realistic target date.


TOTTENHAM'S SUSPENSION LIST

Spurs have no players suspended for this mouth-watering London derby.
