Tottenham team news: Jan Vertonghen available after serving his suspension

Tottenham Hotspur will meet Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs will want to build on their midweek win against Southampton and pick up the three points to try and keep their place within the top four.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side has had to deal with a number of injuries and suspensions this season, however, according to a report by the Daily Express, he will have a key man available for the trip.


Jan Vertonghen completed his one-match suspension in midweek following the red card he picked up in the north London derby against Arsenal.

The news about the £28.8million-rated enforcer, as per Transfermarkt, will have come timely, with the likes of Davinson Sanchez still out injured.

However, Kieran Trippier could face another spell on the sidelines after just making a return as he had to limp out of the game against the Saints.

The Verdict:

Vertonghen’s return will be a huge boost for Tottenham and Pochettino as they have a number of concerns with injuries.

With the festive period getting into full swing, the Argentine could look at making changes to try and keep his squad as fresh as possible and also look to try and limit the number of knocks his players receive.

Spurs also have a crunch game against Barcelona in midweek in the Champions League, so changes will likely be made ahead of Saturday’s trip to the King Power Stadium.
