ShareClose Comments
Spurs will certainly finish second in the Premier League, while the Tigers are set for relegation, leaving this match as a dead rubber on Sunday

Tottenham turned in one of their finest performances of the season on Thursday, defeating Leicester City 6-1 thanks to an inspired display from Harry Kane, who scored four goals to move top of the Premier League Golden Boot race.

That race is all that could be decided on Sunday in this game, however, with Spurs facing an already-relegated Hull safe in the knowledge that they will definitely finish second.


TOTTENHAM INJURIES


Both Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier missed the victory over Leicester, with Moussa Sissoko playing as a wing-back.

Elsewhere, Danny Rose is out for the rest of the season, along with Harry Winks and Erik Lamela.

If Kieran Trippier is fit, however, then the former Burnley defender is likely to be restored to the starting XI.

Mousa Dembele played through the pain barrier on Thursday, and Dele Alli could be restored to central midfield to allow the Belgian a rest, with Son Heung-Min deployed further forward after scoring twice against Leicester.

Maguire has impressed thus far this season, despite Hull's problems, and has been heavily linked with a summer exit to a bigger club, with Spurs reportedly interested.

Abel Hernandez and Lazar Markovic are both out with knee problems, while David Meyler, Ryan Mason and Will Keane are all on the long-term injury list, along with Moses Odubajo.
