Juan Foyth is still sidelined with the ankle injury he picked up in the pre-season match against Bayern Munich while fellow right-back Kyle Walker-Peters is also sidelined due to the hamstring issue he sustained against Newcastle.
To add to the selection woes at right-back, Eric Dier is being assessed after complaining of irritation in his hip.
Dele Alli is back in full training following his own hamstring issues and could be in contention after it was decided he wouldn’t be risked against the Magpies.
