Available for Huddersfield match

The home side's defensive resolve, however, is sure to be put to the test by a Tottenham team that is in fine form; Spurs have scored 11 goals in their four matches away from home this term, while the north Londoners have failed to find the net in just one of their last 12 competitive matches.

The England ace is still on a high after netting a flawless hat-trick against APOEL in the Champions League game midweek.

Pochettino is expecting a tough encounter against Premier League newcomers Huddersfield, who have kept four clean sheets in their opening six league games.

Marseille were briefly said to be willing to take Sissoko back to Ligue 1, while Valencia were linked with a late swoop for his services after talk of a surprise loan move to Turkish side Trabzonspor. This weekend, Kane will fancy his chances at some more goals as Spurs pay a visit to Huddersfield.

Spurs, who are unbeaten in seven games in all competitions, last played Huddersfield in the league back in 1972, when the match at the old Leeds Road ground finished 1-1.


Steve Mounie could return for the hosts on the bench, but the likes of Danny Williams, Kasey Palmer and Jon Stankovic are sidelined for the game.

"I don't see why he should leave, he'll be captain eventually, he's loved there", Redknapp, who managed the club between 2008 and 2012 said.

The visitors will incorporate the rested Delle Alli and Jan Vertongen back to the starting lineup, that Harry Kane will lead the hunt for goals.

Pochettino will welcome back Jan Vertonghen after he served a one-game suspension in the Champions League on Tuesday night so the Belgian global should make an immediate return at the back. You don't get promoted to the Premier League to run and hide from the biggest sides in the land, and Town should remember that this weekend. I expect Tottenham Hotspurs to emerge the victor, but they won't keep a clean sheet in a match that promises to produce more goals.
