All the latest injury news from Spurs ahead of the games against Crystal Palace, with five players either out or doubts.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat against Wolves a couple of weeks ago when they come up against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. Spurs did not play last weekend due to the postponement of a clash with bitter rivals Chelsea, who were contesting the Carabao Cup final, but will be eager to return to winning ways this time around after a patchy of run of form that has led to just two victories in their last five top flight matches.

For their part, Palace looked instantly rejuvenated under new manager Oliver Glasner on Saturday afternoon, scoring three without reply against struggling Burnley to move themselves eight points clear of the relegation zone.

But how will Spurs line up against the Eagles this weekend? We've taken a closer look at their current injury list, as well as any potential return dates where available, below...

Pedro Porro

A valuable asset to Spurs this season, Pedro Porro has been a shoe-in for Ange Postecoglou's men at right-back for much of the current campaign, but is expected to be ruled out of Saturday's clash due to an unspecified strain. Speaking about the defender, Postecoglou said: 'Pedro picked up a sort of strain in training. And it's fair to say he'll miss tomorrow, maybe a couple of weeks for him.'

Destiny Udogie

On the other side of defence, however, there is better news regarding Destiny Udogie. The Italian picked up a knock during the recent win over Brighton and Hove Albion, but is expected to be in contention for a role in Saturday's match day squad. According to Postecoglou: 'Destiny, in last week's game, obviously jarred his knee. Don't think it's anything too serious, but he'll miss tomorrow [vs Wolves]. Hopefully, with no game next week, that's all he'll miss...'

Manor Solomon

The summer signing has endured a difficult first season in North London due to a knee injury sustained during the win over Liverpool at the end of September. After a lengthy stint on the treatment table, it had looked as if the winger was on the verge of a return, but it has since been revealed that he had to undergo a 'further procedure' which has set his rehabilitation back by about two to three weeks. At the present moment in time, the game against Aston Villa on March 10th looks like a viable possibility.

Ryan Sessegnon

Another wide man who has been out for a while, Ryan Sessegnon may not play again this season after undergoing an operation on his hamstring recently. An official club update read: 'Ryan has undergone surgery to his right hamstring following an injury during a U21s match. The 23-year-old will be closely monitored by Spurs' medical team to determine when he can return to training.'

Fraser Forster

And finally, deputy goalkeeper Fraser Forster is also ruled out for the foreseeable after suffering a relatively serious foot injury in training. Explaining the stopper's situation, Postecoglou said: 'The big one is Fraser Forster. He picked up a knock in training - a fracture in his foot - he's longer-term, a couple of months. Yeah, disappointing.'
