Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal - Duo face derby fitness tests

Tottenham will give fitness tests to Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks ahead of Saturday’s north London derby.

Vertonghen picked up a hip injury in the build-up to Wednesday’s defeat at Chelsea, where Winks sustained a similar problem.

Dele Alli (hamstring) and Eric Dier (tonsillitis) are both out.

Captain Laurent Koscielny should be fit to lead out Arsenal.

The defender was forced off in Wednesday’s win over Bournemouth after taking a knock to his knee – but it is expected that he will be ready to face Spurs.

Stephan Lichtsteiner (back) is also available with long-term absentees Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee) still missing.
