Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has this afternoon provided fitness updates on all of Hugo Lloris, Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko, ahead of his side’s clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Tottenham vs Brighton
Spurs are set to welcome Chris Hughton’s relegation-threatened outfit to North London tomorrow evening, for their latest Premier League outing.
The hosts are of course currently in the midst of an incredibly tightly-contested battle for a top-4 spot, along with all of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.
Their latest outing, on Saturday afternoon, saw Tottenham put to the sword by a goal to nil by champions Manchester City at the Etihad.
Neither Arsenal or Man United, though, managed to capitalize on the defeat suffered by Spurs, with the Gunners and Red Devils having fallen to respective losses at the hands of Crystal Palace and Everton yesterday.
As such, though Chelsea have yet to take on Burnley tonight, a win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men tomorrow evening would see the capital giants take a huge step towards securing Champions League football for next season.
And, ahead of their meeting with Brighton, who currently sit precariously 3 points above the Premier League relegation zone, the Tottenham boss has this afternoon provided an injury update on his squad.
First up, Moussa Sissoko, who picked up a groin problem during Spurs’ Champions League elimination of Manchester City last week, is set to miss out:
‘No. He is not going to be fit for the next two weeks. I hope he can recover before, but I’m not optimistic.’
Harry Winks, meanwhile, remains a doubt with a groin issue of his own:
‘Harry Winks, I don’t know. It’s a problem that one day is very good and one not so good. It’s about assessing every day. We will see. Maybe he will be available Tuesday but I’m not sure.’
Pochettino was more optimistic, though, on the chances of Hugo Lloris featuring tomorrow night:
‘I hope yes. We are going to assess. We have a training session and we hope it is not a big issue. We hope he is going to be available.’
