Ahead of Tottenham Hotspur's last league game with Arsenal, the team were battling numerous injuries.

Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Dele Alli were all held out of the preceding England squad before the North London derby, while defender Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen were also struggling.

Some of them made it back in time for the game but Kane in particular looked off the pace and Spurs were beaten 2-0.

On this occasion there are no such concerns, with long term absentees Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela all fit.

Most importantly, the club announced yesterday that there have been no late setbacks.

 

Tempting fate? Perhaps. But Tottenham fans have reacted positively to the good news.

Tottenham are at home for this game and with everybody fit, there is 'no excuse' for defeat against an Arsenal side which sit four points below them in the Premier League table.
