Tottenham Hotspur will face Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday.
Spurs will take on Arsenal at Wembley Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Midfielder Winks and central defender Vertonghen are important players for Tottenham, but manager Pochettino has suggested that the 23-year-old and the 31-year-old could sit out the game against the Gunners.
Pochettino told Football.London when asked if Winks and Vertonghen will be fit for the North London derby against Arsenal: “I don’t know because now we are going to train in the afternoon and we’ll see.
“I cannot say 50/50 or a percentage. We need to assess and see if they will be available or not.”
Bad news for Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham have not been in good form lately, and the North London outfit will have their work cut out against Arsenal if they are without Winks and Vertonghen.
The midfielder and the defender are important players in the current Spurs team, and it is going to be tough for Pochettino’s side to win against Arsenal even at home.
Tottenham are third in the Premier League table at the moment with 60 points from 28 matches, while Arsenal are currently fourth in the standings with 56 points from 28 games.
