Spurs set to make changes for Wimbledon visit to Wembley

Posted Saturday, January 06, 2018 by PA

Mauricio Pochettino is expected to ring the changes as Tottenham host AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup third round on Sunday.

Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen are all likely to be rested at Wembley, with Fernando Llorente, Erik Lamela and Juan Foyth among those in contention to come in.

Toby Alderweireld remains out with a hamstring injury while Danny Rose is also struggling with pain in his knee.

Dons boss Neal Ardley received some welcome fitness news on the eve of the match.

Ardley confirmed captain Barry Fuller's ankle injury was not as bad as first feared and that "with a bit of luck" the veteran defender will be able to face Tottenham.

Fellow defender Jon Meades, who missed Monday's 2-0 win over Southend, and striker Cody McDonald, who has been playing with a fractured metatarsal, were also able to train on Friday and are in contention for Wembley.

However, it remains to be seen when Kwesi Appiah (hamstring) will return with Ardley confirming the Ghana striker requires surgery to get back to full fitness.
