Team News: Two ruled out with a two further injury doubts for Arsenal clash


Tottenham Hotspur have provided a team news update ahead of tomorrow’s North London derby against Arsenal.

Both sides meet at Wembley with Mauricio Pochettino’s side looking to put to an end a two game losing run.

Tottenham haven’t lost three consecutive Premier League games since November 2012, the third defeat of which came against Arsenal. 

Victory for Arsenal could see them close the gap on their bitter rivals to just one point, while victory for Spurs would extend the advantage to seven points.

The club have confirmed that Dele Alli once again missed out as he continues his rehabilitation from the hamstring injury he suffered at Fulham in January.

Eric Dier is also recovering following his bout of tonsillitis and will miss the chance for revenge following the dramas at the Emirates earlier this season.

Late fitness tests will be held for Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks, who both have hip problems.

This will be the fifth meeting between Tottenham and Arsenal at Wembley, with Spurs winning two (D1 L1). They could become the first team to beat the Gunners on three separate occasions at the stadium.
