Tottenham Hotspur

Last updated: Wed 07 November 2018 10:03
In Brief

Only win could preserve their slim Champions League hope alive. Managing very congested schedule these days – this will be fourth game in nine days. Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen and Vincent Janssen sidelined. Moussa Dembele also ruled out, but Heung-min Son shrugged off a problem on time. Hugo Lloris suspended.

Looking Back

Tottenham collected a single point after 3 Champions League games, with the Lilywhites having only themselves to blame for the 2:2 away draw vs. PSV from a fortnight ago when horrific individual errors at the back were the reason why Spurs missed on the win.

On Saturday Spurs played their third game in six days when nearly throwing away 3:0 lead on visit to Wolverhampton only to cross the line as 3:2 winners. Fatigue and heavy legs late on were factors in the display.

Looking Ahead

Coach Pochettino will have to rotate again in order to keep some freshness in his ranks, but due to the busy schedule the injuries started piling up and his options are somewhat limited.

All of Wanyama, Rose, Dier, Vertonghen and Janssen are set to miss, while both Dembele and Son picked up knocks on Saturday. Dembele won't recover on time, but at least Son is fit and available. On top of that captain Lloris will be suspended after his sending off in Eindhoven.

Sanchez, Aurier, Alli and Eriksen didn’t start on Saturday and they rightfully hope to be amongst the main line-up now.

Points of Interest

Conceded 2 goals or more in every one of their 3 Champions League matches so far and this season keep committing lots of individual errors at the back.

PSV Eindhoven

In Brief

11th win in a row in the Eredivisie: beat Vitesse 1-0 thanks to red card. A must-win against Tottenham on the road. Thomas still out. Morero working on his fitness.

Looking Back

PSV did not have the easiest of life at home against Vitesse Arnhem even though they found themselves playing with one man up almost right from the start. Having failed to take the lead in the first half, they actually risked a lot at the beginning of the second one. However, they eventually managed to pierce the opponents' defence and took 3 more precious points.

De Jong keeps scoring. This time around he was served an assist by Lozano, who is really unstoppable. In fact, the rival sides were already handed one red and 11 yellow cards due to fouls committed against him so far in the campaign.

Looking Ahead

PSV keep winning all the Eredivisie games: 11th success in a row. They are still holding a 5-point advantage over Ajax, their sole followers.

Following the home draw against Tottenham, PSV are sitting at the bottom of the Group B on a goal difference. They need to grab a positive result from their trip to England in order to keep their ambitions of a third place finish alive.

The longtime injured Thomas will still be unavailable. Morero has been recently playing with the junior team after recovering from injury and he did not make the 21-man squad. Bergwijn should be fine.

Points of Interest

PSV travelled to Tottenham only once, in March 2008 for a UEFA Cup last 16 fixture, and they won 1-0.
