Jan Vertonghen could play for the first time in almost three months as Tottenham host Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

Vertonghen has been out since January with a knee injury but the defender is fit again and could start if boss Mauricio Pochettino selects the Belgian over the in-form Kevin Wimmer.

Clinton Njie has also recovered from a knee problem and has returned to full training while Erik Lamela is back after shaking off a knock. Nabil Bentaleb (knee), however, is out.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Walker, Trippier, Davies, Rose, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Winks, Dembele, Mason, Dier, Carroll, Eriksen, Onomah, Lamela, Son, Chadli, Njie, Kane.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. As good a player asvertonhen is. Wimmer has been very reliable alongside alderveraild.not sure verts should be brought back in against man.u. a big risk me thinks but in m.p.i trust.
