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

Sports Mole rounds up Tottenham Hotspur's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's EFL Cup showdown with Colchester United.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to get their 2019-20 EFL Cup campaign off to a positive start on Tuesday evening when they travel to Essex to face Colchester United.

The North London club last won this competition in 2008 and they will be looking for a response to Saturday's defeat against Leicester City with a win over John McGreal's men.

The U's, who have already knocked Swindon Town and Crystal Palace out of this competition, are currently 10th in League Two after taking 15 points from their first 10 matches.

Mauricio Pochettino's side, meanwhile, have won just two of their seven competitive matches this season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Tottenham.
