United vs Spurs - team news

Posted on 31 December 2013  - 15:30

Kyle Walker returns and Paulinho is the only additional absentee ahead of our trip to Manchester United on New Year's Day.


Flying full-back Kyle served a one-match suspension against Stoke after accumulating five yellow cards – the first Premier League match he's missed this this season after starting the first 18.

Midfielder Paulinho was forced out of the action against the Potters with an ankle injury and is expected to be sidelined for four weeks.

Jermain Defoe remains a doubt with a hamstring problem while Younes Kaboul (thigh), Sandro (calf), Andros Townsend (hamstring) and Jan Vertonghen (ankle) remain sidelined.

We travel to Old Trafford for a 5.30pm kick-off on New Year’s Day.
