Tottenham injury update ahead of Nottingham Forest: Brennan Johnson latest, five ruled out, four doubts

Tottenham are sweating over the fitness of Brennan Johnson ahead of their weekend game against Nottingham Forest.

Tottenham are hoping Brennan Johnson will recover in time for their game against Nottingham Forest this weekend after having left the pitch in pain against West Ham.

The Welsh forward who opened the scoring against Tottenham went down the tunnel after being replaced late on by Giovanni Lo Celso. He returned with a pack of ice on his shin to conduct interviews after the game.

He has been on form recently, setting up Son Heung-min for the winning goal against Luton Town and claiming the starting spot from Dejan Kulusevski for the game against West Ham United.

Nottingham Forest have their own injury issues with striker Taiwo Awoniyi ruled out of this game due to a knee injury he suffered. This is also the first time Nuno Espirito Santo will return to the Tottenham stadium after he was sacked two seasons ago.

Spurs are chasing Champions League football and the point against West Ham has left them four behind Aston Villa who will take on Manchester United later today.

Forest are neck deep into fighting relegation for the second time a season running and did their chances a world of good with a 3-1 win over Fulham on Tuesday night. They will hope to frustrate Spurs at the weekend.

So with both teams missing key players, below is the list of injured players and their potential return dates ahead of the Premier League game this weekend.
