Tottenham vs Huddersfield - Defender Jan Vertonghen in contention for Huddersfield clash

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is in contention to start Saturday’s Premier League clash with Huddersfield.

The Belgium international has returned to training following an ankle injury and will strengthen the defence in the continued absence of Toby Alderweireld (hamstring).

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino must also decide whether to retain Fernando Llorente following his FA Cup hat-trick on Wednesday against Rochdale.

Huddersfield pair Philip Billing and Chris Lowe return to contention at Wembley.

Midfielder Billing missed last week’s win at West Brom through illness, while left-back Lowe has been sidelined for three games due to an ankle injury.

Aaron Mooy is expected to be back in full training next week after recovering from an infected cut on a knee and striker Elias Kachunga (knee) is closing in on his return.
