Tottenham have had a good start to the season, currently leading the Premier League and with their knockout place in the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho’s men drew 3-3 with LASK during the week to conclude their knockout stage qualification, but their peak form was in the Premier League.

Spurs are currently at the top of the table, stuck on the same points as Liverpool and two points ahead of Chelsea in third after 10 games.

Mourinho’s men are in the midst of a series of tough fixtures they have handled well so far, beating Manchester City and drawing with Chelsea.

Then they will face Arsenal in the North London Derby this Sunday and ahead of that game we’ve rounded up all the latest injury news below.

Harry Kane

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has admitted he is confident Harry Kane will be fit for Sunday’s Arsenal clash.

The Spurs and England forward has been in sensational form this season, scoring 13 goals in 16 games in all competitions.

But he missed the draw against LASK and left Arsenal in slight doubt, after not being seen in training on Wednesday.

“I’m not going to talk about the nature of his [Kane’s] injury, ”Mourinho said. “I think he has a good chance of playing this weekend, I think he will play. ”

Toby Alderweireld

The Belgian defender was forced to injure his groin in the 2-0 win over Manchester City a fortnight ago and has missed the last two games.

But in a massive boost for Spurs, Alderweireld returned to training earlier than expected and Mourinho admits he has an outside chance to be fit for the North London derby.

“Yeah he has a chance [for the weekend] “Mourinho said. “Not for tomorrow. Joe (Rodon) played against Chelsea and it was not an easy first game to play.

“Davinson (Sanchez) will play tomorrow. We have our options if he can’t play and we won’t cry if he can’t love against Chelsea. ”

Erik Lamela

The 28-year-old is still on the treatment table with a foot problem.

The Argentina winger has already played 10 times this season for Spurs, appearing in all three competitions Tottenham have played in this season.

Lamela, who has scored two goals this season, is unlikely to be back in contention for any of Spurs’ upcoming games this week.

“Erik Lamela, I don’t think he has a chance for the weekend,” Mourinho said.

In addition, during Wednesday’s pre-match press conference, Mourinho confirmed that there were injury doubts Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius, but the Spurs boss was quietly convinced they could all come back.

“Harry, Vinicius and Sergio, I believe they have a chance for the weekend,” he added.
