Spurs v Villa - team news
Fri 09 August 2019, 12:49|Tottenham Hotspur
Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have returned to full training with the squad ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener against Aston Villa.
The midfield pair have been sidelined during pre-season but are back in the frame as we prepare to take on newly-promoted Villa at the new stadium (5.30pm).
Heung-Min Son and Juan Foyth are both serving the second of respective three-game bans following their red cards in the penultimate Premier League match of last season. Defender Juan also has an ankle injury – he’s continuing rehab and expected to return to training in September.
New signing Ryan Sessegnon is also unavailable due to a hamstring injury sustained during the summer with the England Under-21 national team. Ryan is undergoing assessment and working through a rehabilitation programme.
Midfielder Dele Alli is progressing well with his rehabilitation from a hamstring problem but is not available this weekend.
But there is good news on left-back Ben Davies who has returned to training with the squad after groin surgery and is building up his fitness.
