Saints v Spurs - team news
23 December 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Toby Alderweireld and Vincent Janssen are set to return to the fray for Wednesday night’s (December 28) trip to Southampton.
Centre-half Toby missed our 2-1 victory over Burnley last time out with a slight back problem but Mauricio Pochettino confirmed today (Friday, December 23) that the Belgian international will be fit to face his former loan club in our first game after Christmas.
Likewise, striker Vincent has shaken off the ankle problem that has kept him on the sidelines in recent weeks and he’ll be available for selection for the first time since the 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on November 26.
However, Erik Lamela is still out with a hip problem.
“Toby will be available, he has been training well after his problem with his back, Vincent Janssen will be available too. It’s only Erik Lamela that will still be out,” Mauricio said.
“We’ll see what happens (with Lamela). It’s a slow recovery, we are happy but we need to be patient with him.”
