Spurs without Vertonghen for Saints clash

Match Preview
Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen will miss Wednesday's visit of Southampton, with Toby Alderweireld set to come in.

Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen will miss Wednesday’s visit of Southampton, with Toby Alderweireld set to come in.

Alderweireld was surprisingly named on the bench for Sunday’s 4-2 north London derby defeat at Arsenal and is likely to partner Juan Foyth at the back after Vertonghen was sent off at The Emirates.

The defence may also be boosted by the return of Kieran Trippier following a groin injury, with Serge Aurier expected to drop out, while Erik Lamela is still sidelined with the thigh problem that ruled him out of the defeat against the Gunners.

Danny Rose, Harry Winks and Lucas Moura may also start if Mauricio Pochettino decides to rotate for the visit of his former club, while Victor Wanyama, Vincent Janssen, Mousa Dembele and Davinson Sanchez are all ruled out of the game at Wembley.
