Mauricio Pochettino will have the Belgium defender available despite him coming off during the 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion with an injury
Tottenham Hotspur will be able to call on the services of Jan Vertonghen for the Premier League visit of Newcastle United tonight.
The Belgium defender limped out of Saturday’s defeat at West Brom with a knock but is fit to feature against the Magpies at Wembley.
While Vertonghen is available, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is set to be without a number of other first-teamers.
Eric Dier (illness), Harry Winks and Mousa Dembele (both ankle) are all expected to miss out, which leaves Tottenham short of options in midfield.
