The Kenyan captain, who last featured for the Lilywhites on November 10 against Crystal Palace, will still be out against the Clarets owing to a lingering knee injury.

Another player, who is doubtful for Spurs is Ivory Coast defender Sergio Aurier, who missed the team’s draw against Barcelona in the Champions League as a result of a groin injury. Mousa Dembele and Kieran Trippier are also a doubt for the encounter as they are suffering from ankle and groin injuries respectively.

“The latest team news sees Serge Aurier [groin] and Mousa Dembele [ankle] both commencing on-field rehabilitation.”

Spurs are third in the league standings with 36 points from 16 games and will be aiming for maximum points from the match.
