Current Spurs injury list and team updates ahead of Burnley

Tottenham Hotspur take on Burnley tonight as they look to build on Thursday night’s 3-0 win over LASK in the Europa League, according to football.london.

Jose Mourinho’s side bounced back from the disappointing 3-3 draw with West Ham in style, with Gareth Bale making his first start for the club in his second spell.

Carlos Vinicius was also on the teamsheet from the start, and performed impressively as Spurs blew away their Austrian visitors.

Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso returned from injury against the Austrian outfit, but neither completed the full 90 minutes

With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest Spurs injury news ahead of the game.

Eric Dier missed the game against LASK on Thursday, having been absent for the West Ham clash after failing to recover from a hamstring problem suffered on international duty.

“It’s the same story, Dier and Tanganga out, and everybody fit,” Mourinho said after training on Wednesday.

There is no update on whether the England international could return for Monday night’s clash against Burnley.

Japhet Tanganga

The young Tottenham defender is yet to feature in the Premier League this season after picking up a thigh problem.

He missed most of the back end of last season after the restart, through a stress fracture.

And it is has been confirmed that he remains out.

“It’s the same story, Dier and Tanganga out, and everybody fit,” Mourinho said.

However, Dier posted an update on Instagram, hinting that he and Tanganga were making progress in their recoveries.

The caption said: “Great week’s work”.

Son Heung-min

The South Korean forward was left on the bench against LASK, but this was purely a tactical decision from Mourinho, who gave one of his star players a well earned rest.

Son came off the bench in the second half and duly netted to continue his explosive form.

Lo Celso and Lamela were both substituted in the second half against LASK, as were Bale, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Lucas Moura, and Vinicius.

However, it would appear those changes were for tactical reasons so all five players should be in contention to face Burnley.
