Danny Rose close to fitness ahead of Arsenal clash

Tottenham defender Danny Rose is hoping to recover from a knock in time for the north London derby at Arsenal on Sunday.

Rose came off in the second half of Monday's win over Aston Villa but is expected to be fit while Clinton Njie is close to recovering from a hamstring injury and could also feature at the Emirates.

Summer signing Son Heung-min is available again following six weeks out with a foot problem, but Nabil Bentaleb and Nacer Chadli are both out with ankle injuries.

Andros Townsend is also likely to be absent as the winger serves punishment for his altercation with a club fitness coach on Monday.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Walker, Trippier, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Fazio, Rose, Davies, Winks, Dier, Dembele, Mason, Carroll, Alli, Lamela, Eriksen, Onomah, Son Heung-min, Njie, Kane.
