Tottenham have enjoyed a fine start to the season, currently sitting top of the Premier League and with their Europa League knockout stage spot sealed.
Jose Mourinho‘s men drew 3-3 with LASK during the week to wrap up their qualification for the knockout stage, but the height of their form has been in the Premier League.
Mourinho’s men are in the midst of a tough run of fixtures which they coped well with so far, beating Manchester City and drawing with Chelsea.
Next up, they face Arsenal in the North London derby this Sunday and ahead of that game, we have rounded up all the latest injury news below.
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has admitted he is confident that Harry Kane will be fit for Sunday’s clash against Arsenal.
The Spurs and England striker has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals in 16 games in all competitions.
But he missed the draw against LASK and is a slight doubt for Arsenal, after not being seen in training on Wednesday.
“I’m not going to say about the nature of his [Kane’s] injury,” Mourinho said. “I think he has a good chance of playing at the weekend, I believe he will play.”
The Belgian defender was forced off with a groin injury in the 2-0 win over Manchester City a fortnight ago, and missed out on the last two games.
But in a massive boost for Spurs, Alderweireld has returned to training ahead of schedule and Mourinho admits he has an outside chance of being fit for the North London Derby
“Yeah he has a chance [for the weekend],” Mourinho said. “Not for tomorrow. Joe (Rodon) played against Chelsea and it wasn’t an easy first match to play.
“Davinson (Sanchez) will play tomorrow. We have our options if he cannot play and we will not cry if he can’t like against Chelsea.”

The 28-year-old is still on the treatment table due to a foot problem.
The Argentine winger has played 10 times already this season for Spurs, featuring in all three of the competitions that Tottenham have competed in this term.
Lamela, who has scored two goals this term, is not expected to be back in contention for any of Spurs’ upcoming games this week.
“Erik Lamela I don’t believe has a chance for the weekend,” Mourinho said.
Furthermore, at Wednesday’s pre-match press conference, Mourinho confirmed that there were injury doubts over Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius, but the Spurs boss was quietly confident they could all return.
“Harry, Vinicius and Sergio I believe they have a chance for the weekend,” he added.
