Tottenham Hotspur have had a number of injuries to contend with over the course of the season so far.
Victor Wanyama has been a long-term absentee with a knee injury, while Toby Alderweireld is not expected to return to action until February due to a hamstring problem.
With the fixtures coming thick and fast now that the Premier League has entered the festive period, having fit squad is essential in order to cope with the demand.
Today, Tottenham posted their weekly injury update on Twitter ahead of Saturday’s trip to face Burnley at Turf Moor.
As expected, Alderweireld remains on the sidelines, while Wanyama, who has been taking part in elements of training, has been ruled out of the game.
The good news is that Davinson Sanchez is back in the fray after serving a suspension.
