Tottenham star remains a HUGE doubt for Premier League clash with Aston Villa

first_img1 Jan Vertonghen in action for Tottenham Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen remains a big doubt for the home game against Aston Villa on Saturday after missing training once again on Thursday.The Belgium international was forced to miss the 0-0 draw with Burnley last weekend through illness and has still not made a full recovery.Mauricio Pochettino was forced to partner out of favour Vlad Chiriches alongside Eric Dier at the heart of the defence for the game at Turf Moor.But with Kyle Walker injuring his foot last Sunday and undergoing scans this week, Dier will have to move back to right back leaving the Spurs head coach with a potential selection dilemma at centre-back.Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris is also a doubt for the Villa game as he continues to recover from a knee injury which has sidelined him since the end of March.The France keeper was also absent from the club’s open training session at White Hart Lane which means Michel Vorm could get another chance to make a rare appearance in the Premier League.last_img
