Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon ahead of the game and he’s given reporters a team news and injury update.

The Spurs boss has confirmed that Victor Wanyama and Juan Foyth are the only significant fitness absentees as the duo continue to recover from long-term injury problems.

Wanyama was hampered by a knee injury during the second half of last season and is yet to feature this campaign but the Kenyan international is close to returning to action after resuming first team training this week.

The trip to Old Trafford will come too soon for Wanyama but the midfielder will be hoping to hoping to work on his fitness next week with the aim of playing some part in the game with Watford before the international break.

Foyth has also failed to make an appearance yet this season due to an on-going thigh injury and the young centre-back is still working through his rehabilitation programme with a view to returning over the coming weeks.

In addition to Wanyama and Foyth, Tottenham will also be without Heung-min Son for the Man Utd game as the attacker continues to represent South Korea at the Asian Games.

Out-of-favour striker Vincent Janssen is also out after undergoing foot surgery while youngster Cameron Cater-Vickers is nursing a groin injury but neither player would have made the squad even if fully fit.
