Richarlison is the only player in Spurs’ squad who is a confirmed absentee for their Boxing Day fixture. He picked up a thigh injury whilst playing for Brazil - he could remain on the sidelines for another three or four weeks, according to Spurs boss Antonio Conte.

Spurs also have a large amount of potenial injury doubts. Cristian Romero, Rodrigo Bentancur, Oliver Skipp, Djed Spence and Ivan Perisic are all touch and go at the moment. Hugo Lloris, however, is expected to be fit and ready to play.

Brentford injury news

Brentford have four players who are confirmed to be out of the Spurs game - some of which are key players. Perhaps their biggest loss will be Kristoffer Ajer, who still isn’t ready after picking up a knee injury back in November - however, he could be back soon after this.

Aside from him, Aaron Hickey, Thomas Strakosha and Shandon Baptiste will also miss out on Brentford’s Boxing Day fixture. It’s not all bad news for Bees fans, though - Pontus Jansson will be available to start, as confirmed by Brentford manager Thomas Frank.
