Harambee Stars and Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama will miss Saturday's London Derby against Arsenal.

Arsenal will host Tottenham Hotspur in a top of the bill English Premier League clash, but without the influential Kenyan midfielder.

Wanyama is yet to recover from a knee injury sustained at the beginning of the season and he has since been ruled out of the Emirates clash alongside Toby Alderweireld.

Wanyama and Alderweireld, who is nursing hamstring injury, both missed Spurs’ training sessions on Thursday as they continue their rehabilitation. Striker Harry Kane and Dele Alli, however, will be available for selection.

Spurs are currently third on the table behind Manchester United and eight points behind leaders Manchester City. Arsenal are four points behind their neighbours after just 11 matches.
