Tottenham are set to face Newcastle United on Sunday, October 14 once Premier League action resumes after the international break.
And ahead of the game here are the latest team news and injury updates for Spurs.
Steven Bergwijn has sustained an injury during the last round of international fixtures with the Netherlands.
The 24-year-old’s last outing for Tottenham was their European clash with French team Rennes, where he picked up a foot problem.
And this time Bergwijn was of course left out of the Netherlands squad.
Ryan Sessegnon has also been missing for a few weeks after picking up an injury while on international duty with England’s under-21 team.
Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was unable to tell the media when he would be back when speaking about him earlier in the month. He said:
“We don’t know [when he will return]. They are improving, day by day.”
Ben Davies was left out from the Wales squad due to illness earlier in the week.
“Ben Davies and David Brooks have had to withdraw from the squad due to illness. Brysiwch wella hogia! (get well soon),” read a tweet on the official Wales Twitter account.
So his return is unknown as well.
Matt Doherty had to be withdrawn at half-time during the Republic of Ireland’s 4-0 thumping of Qatar. He was replaced by Cyrus Christie.
There is currently no indication over the severity of his injury.
Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso are not injured, however they could well be huge doubts for the game against the Magpies.
Angentina is set to take on Peru less than three days before kick-off at St James’ Park and they would still be required to fly back in time for the game as it could well be too much of a squeeze to get the two prepared in time.
Emerson Royal is another of the South American contingent to have his participation thrown into doubt, as he is part of the Brazil squad set to take on Uruguay.
His return time is even smaller than that of Romero and Lo Celso so he could be left out, although with Doherty’s fitness up in the air, Emerson could potentially be rushed into the side.
Davinson Sanchez is also not expected to return under three days before kick-off against Newcastle, with Colombia scheduled to play Ecuador in Barranquilla on Thursday evening.
So the Colombian will be back late, as well leaving his participation at St James’ Park in doubt.
