An explanation for the absence of Serge Aurier from Tottenham’s squad to face Wolverhampton Wanderers has been forthcoming this afternoon.

PL showdown

Ryan Mason’s men are of course locked in action with Wolves at present.

The clash marks a pivotal one for the Lilywhites, who remain in the thick of the Premier League’s battle for European football.

Ahead of kick-off, Spurs sat in 7th, aware that a victory would draw them level with West Ham, after David Moyes’ men dropped further points at Brighton on Saturday night.

As things stand early in the action in north London, the scoreline remains goalless.

Aurier latest

With the stakes of course so high for his side this afternoon, it came as little surprise when Ryan Mason opted to field as close to a full-strength starting XI as possible to take on Wolves.

The likes of Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg were all included from the off, behind a lethal front-4 of Gareth Bale, Dele Alli, Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

One surprise omission from not only the capital outfit’s line-up, but matchday squad altogether on Saturday, though, was Serge Aurier:

The Ivorian has proven a regular contributor since Mason’s installation on the Tottenham bench, making his complete omission on Sunday a major surprise.

As outlined above, though, an explanation for Aurier’s absence has since been forthcoming.

As per the reliable Dan Kilpatrick, the African misses out this afternoon due to a groin issue:

Could Aurier have now lined out in Spurs’ colours for the final time, though?

The full-back has been hotly tipped for a summer exit of late, with the likes of Real Madrid and even ex-club PSG tipped as potential landing spots ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
