Six Tottenham players confirmed to miss finale against Hull, two others are major doubts
By Alex Stevens
Six Tottenham players will miss the team’s end-of-season finale against Hull City on Sunday, it has been confirmed.
The official Spurs website states that injured senior trio Danny Rose (knee), Erik Lamela (hip) and Harry Winks (ankle) remain sidelined for the Premier League clash on Sunday.
They are joined on the absent list by defender Cameron Carter-Vickers, attacking midfielder Josh Onomah and right-back Kyle Walker-Peters, who are competing at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup.
The youthful trio might have been expected to have made the matchday squad for the midweek demolition of Leicester as well as Sunday’s trip to Hull.
Mauricio Pochettino named young guns Filip Lesniak and Samuel Shashoua for the King Power Stadium clash, with the 21-year-old Slovakian replacing Mousa Dembele after 86 minutes.

It is likely that some Spurs young players will once again be on the substitute’s bench against Mauro Silva’s already-relegated side.
Spurs report that senior right-back Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris are also major doubts for the clash at the KCOM Stadium.
Walker is struggling with the ankle injury that forced him out of the Leicester game and Lloris has a knee problem sustained on Thursday.
