Young centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers has dealt Tottenham with a blow after suffering a knee injury in the week.
The 19-year-old defender has failed to make a single league appearance for Spurs this season, but he is often featured on the bench with 16 substitute appearances for the campaign.
However, he was not part of the match day squad for last weekend’s 4-0 demolition of Watford and he may also have to sit out of the Saturday afternoon clash against Bournemouth.
The official Tottenham Twitter account confirmed in the build-up to the Cherries encounter that the teenager was being assessed after suffering an injury to his knee during a United States Under-20 training camp this week.

Tottenham are currently blessed in the centre-back positions with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld starring in the first team, while Eric Dier can also do a job in the back line.
Carter-Vickers is considered within the next generation of the impressive Spurs team and while he has not made his Premier League debut he has played in four matches for the north London club.
Fans will now be hoping that his injury is not too serious as he could be in line to make his league bow depending on how the top of the league battle ends.
In other Tottenham news, Victor Wanyama has admitted that he’d lose a wrestling match to this Spurs player.
