Will Hughes looks likely to miss the visit of Spurs having succumbed to a hamstring injury on Wednesday.

Miguel Britos is a major doubt due to injury.

Tottenham :

Returning to the fray for Tottenham is Harry Winks, who has overcome illness and is in line to start at Vicarage Road.

Christian Eriksen may be rested, with Pochettino claiming that the Dane is “mentally tired”.

Erik Lamela, despite impressing on his return last Tuesday, is unlikely to start from the off, given his recent 13-month layoff.
