Tottenham quartet Eric Dier, Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon and Kyle Walker-Peters will be assessed, having returned to training this week.
Giovani Lo Celso suffered a hip problem on international duty and is out, while Davinson Sanchez is a fitness concern.
Crystal Palace central defender Mamadou Sakho is in line for his first start since suffering a knee injury in February.
Martin Kelly, James Tomkins and Scott Dann all remain doubtful.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
@Mark_Scott_: Spurs haven’t looked quite right so far this season and Mauricio Pochettino held an hour-long meeting with his players this week to try and “refocus their minds”, while he says he’s sure Christian Eriksen’s head is in the right place despite all the summer transfer talk.
Palace’s recent league record against Tottenham doesn’t make pleasant reading, but since the start of the 2016-17 season they’ve won away at five of the established top-six sides – which is more than any other club have managed in that time.
A victory at Spurs is the one scalp they’re missing.
VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: “Palace have showed they are a strong team, a team that it’s difficult to create chances against, a team that beat Manchester United away.
“We have seven games in 21 days. I am not going to complain; we are going to find solutions and we need to be strong.”
It will be up to Spurs to break a good Palace team down. They didn’t manage that against Newcastle last month, but I think they will have more joy this time.
