Tottenham Hotspur return to Premier League action on Sunday against Sheffield United.
Spurs missed the chance to climb up to third in the table on Wednesday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Fulham at home.
Jose Mourinho’s players go into the game in sixth place, knowing that a win over Scott Parker’s side would have left them just four points behind league leaders Manchester United.
A win this weekend will be crucial, with upcoming league fixtures against Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City all coming soon.
Tottenham currently boast a near-fully fit squad which should stand them in good stead for the months ahead.
With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest Spurs injury news going into the clash at Bramall Lane.
Giovani Lo Celso
The 24-year-old is currently unavailable after picking up a hamstring injury in Spurs’ 2-0 defeat to Leicester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 20.
Mourinho confirmed that the Argentinian remains sidelined and will do so for the foreseeable future: “He’s injured. For a few weeks.”

Mourinho has confirmed that Steven Bergwijn is in contention to return to action against Sheffield United.
A regular in the Spurs XI of late, the Dutchman was not even in the matchday squad on Wednesday evening for the 1-1 draw against Fulham.
But Bergwijn looks set to be an option for this weekend’s trip to Bramall Lane after recovering from illness.
“Yeah, he was ill,” said the head coach when asked if Bergwijn was OK after his Fulham absence. “He was ill the week before, the week of Marine and then he trained with the team only one day, which was the day before we played Fulham.”
Elsewhere, Welsh forward Gareth Bale was on the bench for Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw at home to Fulham.
Despite being benched, Bale has no injury concerns at present and remains in contention for this weekend.
