The Kenya global, who joined Spurs from Southampton last summer, had started every Premier League for his new employers this season before picking up the injury during the 2-0 win over Burnley on 1st April. I'm not sure this will be the case with Tottenham.

Pochettino is well aware that Chelsea remain firm favourites in the battle to be crowned champions, but Tottenham do have the potential advantage of playing first in the next round of matches - meaning that victory at West Ham United on Friday would see them close the gap to one point before Chelsea next take to the field against Middlesbrough on Monday.

The vast majority of people had envisioned the Premier League title race as a foregone conclusion but Chelsea's recent stumble, losing two out of their last four league games has seen the gap between them and Spurs reduced to just four points.

Top four contenders City and United both dropped points to relegation-threatened sides on Sunday, results and displays which frustrated supporters of the Manchester duo... It will be a tough game and a hard game and if we are able to win we will see what happens.

PSG's decision to allow Luiz to return to Stamford Bridge was motivated by a desire to pair Marquinhos with Thiago Silva in the heart of their defence, but the 30-year-old says he was always intrigued by the possibility of a second chance at Chelsea when the transfer presented itself.
