Tottenham Hotspur must bring their heads down from the clouds in time for this weekend, as they put their Champions League glory night behind them in place of a tough Prem fixture.
Spurs face an in-form Everton at home on the last day on the season, with a win potentially taking them back into third if Chelsea slip up.
The Lilywhites must also watch out for a lurking Arsenal, who will be looking to pull off an eight-goal swing and three-point gap to overtake Spurs into fourth.
The team news was announced by Spurs today, with many of the first team walking wounded from their efforts on Wednesday, as well as the existing injured stars.
Tottenham revealed that Kane and Winks are undergoing on-field training, Foyth and Son are suspended, Wanyama is being assessed for a thigh injury, Danny Rose for a hamstring issue, Vertonghen for an ankle knock, and Sanchez continues rehab on his thigh.
➡️ @daosanchez26 (thigh) – continuing rehab
➡️ @JanVertonghen (ankle) – continues assessment after injury v Ajax
➡️ Danny Rose (hamstring) – being assessed ahead of the weekend

Journalist Alasdair Gold revealed Pochettino told him that he will plug the gaps with academy players if needed.
I should clarify he of course meant plugging gaps in the squad with academy players on Sunday if need be, rather than playing an academy side.

Spurs Web Opinion:
I’m not worried too much as the injuries all sound like short-term problems. It may be nice to see the likes of Skipp, Marsh, and maybe even Parrott featured on the bench against Everton. It’s about time Spurs start giving some of these lads more and more game time.
