Mauricio Pochettino has injury worries to add to his Tottenham problems as Spurs look to return to winning ways when they travel to Hull on Sunday.
Ben Davies is set for his Tottenham league debut as current incumbent Danny Rose is an injury doubt after suffering a rib injury in the final minutes of the disappointing home defeat to Stoke before the international break.
Joining Rose on the sidelines could be Andros Townsend who missed out on England's games with Slovenia and Scotland with an ankle injury.
Rose's fellow full back Kyle Naughton misses out due to the red card he picked up when he brought down Victor Moses, so Eric Dier looks to feature again despite having missed England U21 duty to work on his role at centre back.
In positive news, Kyle Walker has returned to training after abdominal surgey but the Hull game has come too soon for him to feature. Nabil Bentaleb is also making good progress from his ankle injury.

“Kyle is getting better and maybe if he follows in the same way it’s possible he might start to play again in the next few weeks,” Mauricio Pochettino told the club's official site.
“Nabil is the same as Kyle, getting better, not fully recovered yet but now looking to be involved in training.”
Predicted line- up
Lloris, Dier, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Capoue, Mason, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Kane
