Tottenham Hotspur are looking to make it three wins out of three as they travel away to Manchester United tonight, and manager Mauricio Pochettino could name an unchanged XI from the side who beat Fulham 3-1 at Wembley last Saturday.
Most of the squad is at full fitness but they are expected to be without Victor Wanyama, who is unlikely to be fit enough despite being back in training, and Son Heung-min, who is on international duty with South Korea at the Asian Games.
When asked about Danny Rose in his pre-match press conference, the Tottenham coach refused to give too much away.
“Look I don’t want to talk about individual players who still haven’t played.” The Argentine told the press on Friday.
“You need to talk about whether he play on Monday, or maybe not. You need to wait and see what is going to happen.”
The Red Devils could see Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia back in action as both have now trained for the last week. Ander Herrera was an unused substitute at the Amex Stadium and could make his first appearance since coming off injured against Bayern Munich in pre-season.
"Lingard, Matic & Valencia are training with the team since yesterday. Fully fit but not yet ready to play or be selected I think. Some of the other boys are in better condition."

Spurs have picked up six points in their first two games but United manager Jose Mourinho will be desperate to bounce back after a disappointing 3-2 loss away at Brighton last Sunday.
Tonight represents a golden opportunity as Pochettino’s men have failed to even score in a fixture at Old Trafford, never mind pick up any points, during his tenure as Spurs manager.
Tottenham were more recently knocked out the FA Cup semi-final by tonight’s hosts at Wembley and the Lilywhites have lost more matches at the Theatre of Dreams than any other team in Premier League history.
