Rose still missing for Spurs

Tottenham defender Danny Rose will miss Sunday's clash with Sunderland but Mousa Dembele is available again.

Dembele came off the bench against Monaco in the Champions League on Wednesday but has missed the start of Spurs' domestic campaign through suspension.

Rose is unavailable for the match at White Hart Lane as he is still recovering from a hamstring strain and it is hoped he will be back next week.

Meanwhile, boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed summer signing Georges-Kevin N'Koudou is not far away from making his first appearance for the club having arrived in north London lacking fitness.

"I think maybe he will be ready to be selected next week, maybe but not sure," said Pochettino.

"It is going well. He is very young, he speaks only French, it's a big problem for him. He is learning quickly, but he is still settling into the team."

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Walker, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Davies, Dier, Wanyama, Carroll, Dembele, Sissoko, Alli, Lamela, Nkoudou, Eriksen, Son, Janssen, Kane.
