Kyle Walker will miss the home match with Aston Villa due to a foot inury.

Walker will miss out after picking up a foot injury at Burnley; the full-back is still wearing a protective boot and swelling is delaying further tests. Vlad Chiriches is likely to retain his place but DeAndre Yedlin is an option although the January signing is yet to feature for the first team. Jan Vertonghen [illness] remains a doubt with Ben Davies or Younes Kaboul available if required.

Hugo Lloris remains out for Tottenham's home game with Aston Villa.

A knee tendon injury which required stitches has not fully healed meaning Vorm will continue to deputise for Lloris – the French goalkeeper could be back next weekend.

Tottenham could not find any goals in them against Burnley but managed to earn a road point with a 0-0 draw, thanks to a fine shift from backup keeper Michel Vorm.

On a day when Harry Kane was handed the armband for the first time with the senior team, he had a rare quiet performance. Spurs won the possession battle but the Clarets defense were able to put the pressure on in the final third and thwarted most buildups before they became legit chances. Kane did not get a shot off until the final minutes of the first half. Nacer Chadli had a couple of good looks in quick succession in the opening frame but Tom Heaton was equal to Vorm's performance and made some quality saves. Worse yet for Spurs, Kyle Walker jammed his foot on a volley near the half and had to come off early in the second. It was a chance for Spurs to leapfrog Liverpool and Southampton in the table and they failed.

Andros Townsend's spectacular strike gave an experimental England line-up a creditable draw against Italy in Turin.

Saints' striker Graziano Pelle's first-half header gave Italy a deserved first half lead, but England were lifted by the introduction of several substitutes in the second half. Andros Townsend was one of them, and the winger capped a fine display with a rising 20-yard drive 11 minutes, while Ryan Mason made is debut and Kyle Walker came on at right-back. Harry Kane got his first international start and gave an energetic display upfront alongside Wayne Rooney as Roy Hogson's men left Turin with a 1-1 draw.

Danny Rose became the latest England international to withdraw from the upcoming games with Lithuania and Italy after picking up an unspecified injury in training.

Rose was a late addition to the England squad - replacing Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw [hamstring] - but the FA confirmed on Wednesday that the defender had returned to Tottenham for treatment following a problem during todays' session. With no additional call-ups at the time of writing Leighton Baines looks certain to start in both games although Ryan Bertrand would be an obvious choice should Roy Hodgson decide to bring in a replacement. Rose is one of five withdrawals already this week joining Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Fraser Forster while Fabian Delph has been struggling with illness and Raheem Sterling is managing a toe complaint.

Christian Eriksen's fine fantasy form has shown a clear decline over the past six weeks.

It wasn't so long ago that Eriksen was THE Spurs player to have in your fantasy team - even over Harry Kane - with the midfielder consistently popping up with winning goals and racking up points from shots on target, assists and successful crosses. However, the long season appears to have taken it's toll on the Danish star as he has failed to record double digit fantasy returns since Week 23 (with the exception of the double week) and it is clear to the naked eye that he is simply not playing with quite the same energy. Considering his price is still up around the £13million mark in the Yahoo game we would suggest you avoid picking Eriksen for now, at least until there are signs of a revival of freshness and form.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris missed his first Premier League minutes of the season as the French international slid out to thwart a Leicester attack during the win at White Hart Lane.

Needing victory to realistically stand a chance of survival Leicester started Saturdays’ game with attacking intent having already won their [FA Cup] this season. Nigel Pearson opted for a change of formation with Jamie Vardy [partnering Leonardo Ulloa up front] and it was his run which caused the problem during the opening minutes. Vardy broke into the box and as Lloris closed the angle Kyle Walker came across - there was a coming together which left Lloris with a deep knee laceration. Unable to continue the goalkeeper was stretchered off and taken to hospital – Pochettino did manage to provide a brief update confirming there was tendon damage although it wasn’t thought to be serious.

Tottenham enjoyed another sizzling display by Harry Kane who scored a hat trick but were lucky to escape with the points in a wild 4-3 final at White Hart Lane.

Kane was the right place in the right time for most of the day, as he has been for most of the season. He scored in the sixth minute by putting home a rebound after Kasper Schmeichel could not collect an Eric Dier shot. He then grabbed a brace in the 13th minute, when Kyle Walker stormed into the area looking to lay off the ball. The cross took a deflection off a Fox and landed perfectly in front of Kane who converted again. Leicester responded with two unanswered goals to level things but a David Nugent foul on Danny Rose granted Spurs a penalty and Kane delivered yet again. Kane is now your Premier League leader in goals with 19, an amazing achievement in his first full season with the senior squad and even more impressive when one considers he didn't start the first 10 league games of the season. That then makes 19 goals in 20 games for Kane. It is safe to say he is the real deal.

One outside back was a bit of a disaster while the other, Danny Rose, was one of the few who came away from Spurs' Week 29 loss at Manchester United with any credit.

You have to dig deep to find encouraging storylines from Spurs' trip to Old Trafford last weekend but Danny Rose is one. Mauricio Pochettino did his best to replace Rose with Ben Davies and occasionally with Jan Vertonghen but Rose played well against Manchester United and even managed to get close to double digits in the Yahoo scoring system as he led all Spurs players with 9 points for the week. A yellow card and three fouls committed prevented him from doing even better with seven tackles won, three passes intercepted, a blocked shot and a successful cross.

Emmanuel Adebayor is hoping to get his Tottenham career back on track after the Togo international made a rare appearance during Sundays’ defeat at Old Trafford after Roberto Soldado missed out because of a training ground knee injury.

Two weeks ago Mauricio Pochettino denied Adebayor had been forced to train with the development squad as speculation mounted regarding the striker’s absence from the first team but last season’s top-scorer was able to get some minutes for only the second time this year in Soldado's absence. Although the match was over as a contest following his introduction Adebayor has vowed to return stronger having been through a "dark moment" in his career. With Harry Kane continuing to steal the limelight Adebayor has slipped down the pecking order but as Soldado struggles [plus the extent of his injury is not yet known] an opportunity for the forgotten man awaits. Pochettino also confirmed Andros Townsend was replaced against Manchester United for tactical reasons while Ryan Mason picked up a minor leg injury.

Spurs were never really in the match as Manchester United beat them comprehensively at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Neither the tactics nor the individual effort was sufficient on Sunday as Spurs were demolished by Manchester United. Spurs must have felt good about their chances after seeing Arsenal beat United on Monday but they were never in it. United's midfield, led by Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini, kept Spurs from mounting any sort of an attack.

Harry Kane was once again the hero for Tottenham, scoring twice to give them enough to hold off Queens Park Rangers in a 1-2 final at Loftus Road.

Kane saved the day for Spurs and saved the gameweek for the vast majority of managers who invested in him after the young striker came up empty in the win over Swansea City on Wednesday. He has now scored 14 goals in his last 13 appearances and has 26 goals in all competitions. His first came on a Andros Townsend free kick in the first half that was served into the box and Kane rose above all others to head home. He then sealed the points in the second by taking a Ryan Mason pass and weaving his way around the keeper to tap home. Now above Southampton in the table, SPurs still have an outside crack at a Champion's League spot.

Tottenham earned a first win in six games as they bounced back from losing the League Cup final by beating Swansea.

A thrilling game ended 3-2 to Tottenham, but that only tells half the story. Spurs took the lead through Nacer Chadli but that hardly mattered when, minutes later, Swansea's Bafetimbi Gomis collapsed on the pitch and had to be stretchered off. The game restarted and Ki Sung-Yueng equalised for the visitors within 10 minutes after Gylfi Sigurdsson's free kick had hit the post. That was how it stayed until the second half when Spurs turned the screw and scored twice through Ryan Mason and a fine individual goal from Andros Townsend to make it 3-1. The home side were in complete control until Sigurdsson hit a volley with two minutes to go to set up a grandstand finish. Swansea pressed and had one last chance but Hugo Lloris made a world class save in injury time to ensure the game ended 3-2.

Kyle Walker is a doubt for Tottenham's match with Swansea after playing on with an injury in the Capital One Cup Final on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino will check on a number of players ahead of Wednesdays’ game with Kyle Walker being the biggest concern – Eric Dier could move across onto the right with Frederico Fazio coming into the centre. Ben Davies has a chance of facing his former employers although it would mean Danny Rose dropping to the bench but Michel Vorm is unlikely to trouble Hugo Lloris in goal and will have to be satisfied with a place on the bench having failed to start a single league game since his move from Swansea. Eric Lamela and Mousa Dembele were restricted to minutes from the sideline at Wembley so the pair will be hoping for a recall - Nacer Chadli and Andros Townsend are the two players most at risk.

Tottenham and QPR both have a double gameweek in week 28.

Tottenham and QPR were both out of action in week 27 due to Tottenham's Capital One Cup final against Chelsea so they are making up their game this week. This gives both teams' players two chances to earn fantasy points and it's generally a wise idea to stack up on double gameweeks whenever possible. Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose, and Charlie Austin are some good options for the double week.
