Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino will be without a trio of key midfielders for the Capital One Cup third-round clash with rivals Arsenal tomorrow evening.

Ryan Mason (knee), Nabil Bentaleb (ankle) and Mousa Dembele (foot) have all been ruled out by Pochettino – who is likely to alter his line-up substantially from that which won 1-0 against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Harry Kane could keep his place as the England striker goes in search of his first club goal of the campaign while the likes of Harry Winks and Clinton Njie will be hoping for their maiden starts.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Rose, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Walker, Trippier, Dier, Alli, Carroll, Winks, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela, Njie, Townsend, Son, Kane.
