Tottenham v Burnley team news, including news on Dembele and Janssen

Tottenham's Vincent Janssen

All the latest injury updates ahead of Sunday's Premier League match at White Hart Lane.

Speaking to the club's official website, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that Mousa Dembele and Vincent Janssen could both be fit to feature in his side's match against Burnley this weekend.

Dembele sat out the midweek win over Hull and Janssen has not played since the defeat at Chelsea at the end of November, while Erik Lamela has also been sidelined of late.

"Vincent is improving a lot and we will see tomorrow if he's available or not," Pochettino said. "He's trained with the group for the last few days and we'll see now if he's in condition to play."

"We have another training session tomorrow and then we'll see if Dembele's available or not. Erik is improving every day - he's still out, but we're happy with how he's improving." he added.

Pochettino's side have 10 days without a fixture from Sunday before two potentially tricky trips to Southampton and Watford and the visit of Chelsea over the Christmas/New Year period.

Playing Europa League football in 2017 will also test the depth of Tottenham's squad, with summer signings such as Janssen and Moussa Sissoko needing to improve in the New Year after difficult starts to their careers in North London.

Spurs' comfortable midweek victory kept them three points clear of sixth and the same amount adrift of fourth, and they will be expecting another victory against the Clarets.

Sean Dyche's only injury concern is Icelandic winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who will be subject to a late fitness test as he aims to make his comeback from a hamstring strain.

The Clarets have the worst away record in the Premier League having picked up only one point and scored just a solitary goal from their seven trips so far, but Dyche told the club's official website that he is not overly concerned by that fact.

“It is tough away from home in the Premier League. People will forget we won early on in the last Premier League season at Stoke, where we hung on with our fingers, then we didn’t win again until later on in the season," he said.

“But it’s the season that counts and if we got three wins away from home this season we’d still be in great shape, so we have to be realistic about the challenge, but look at what we are doing in order to take that challenge on," he added.
