Former Tottenham Hotspurs player Michael Dawson, who is suffering from an injury, is expected to return against his former club after resting for a fortnight.

Hull City receive a boost as central defender and ex-Spurs player, Michael Dawson, Nikica Jelavic and Curtis Davies may all return after injury, while keeper Allan McGregor is set to play.

On the other hand, Andros Townsend and Danny Rose are both doubtful while Kyle Naughton misses out as he serves a two-match suspension after picking up a red card against Stoke for the away team.

Tottenham manager, Pochettino, confirmed that several players of his squad are struggling for fitness ahead of the KC Stadium encounter but did not specifically reveal which squad will travel to Hull.

“We have another training session tomorrow to review and test some players and then we will decide the squad that travels to Hull,” said Mauricio.

Andros Townsend, who picked up an ankle injury during the International break and was forced to withdraw from the most recent England squad, is sure to miss the trip to the KC stadium which may open the door for Erik Lamela.

Also missing from the action is Danny Rose, who suffered a rib injury in the final minutes against Stoke on November 9. Kyle Naughton is another player who will remain unavailable for selection as the defender is serving a 2-match suspension for the red card he picked up also against Stoke and Eric Dier is likely to replace him at right-back.

On the other hand, the good news for Tottenham is that Kyle Walker, who underwent an abdominal surgery and Nabil Bentaleb, who is recovering from an ankle injury are now back in training.

“Kyle is getting better and maybe if he follows in the same way it’s possible he might start to play again in the next few weeks,” said Pochettino.

“Nabil is the same as Kyle, getting better, not fully recovered yet but now looking to be involved in training.”

Hull City are sitting in the bottom half of the Premier League table at 15th will 11 points in the kitty. If they are to beat Tottenham at home on Sunday, it will take them level on points with the London club. Tottenham, on the other hand, are 12th in the league table having gained 14 points from 11 games. The London club are looking to turn around their season by doing a good job against Hull City on Sunday.
