Tottenham will be without Christian Eriksen for the Premier League trip to Huddersfield. 

Eriksen has an abdomen injury and will miss the visit to West Yorkshire, along with Serge Aurier and Michel Vorm.

However, speaking at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said Eriksen’s injury is not serious and that he hopes the Dane will be fit for next week’s Champions League clash with Barcelona.

Eriksen picked up the injury during Spurs’ recent win against Brighton.

Defender Aurier suffered a thigh injury during the Carabao Cup game against Watford.

Meanwhile, Pochettino did not rule out a return for keeper Hugo Lloris against Huddersfield.

In the absence of Vorm, who has a knee problem, and Lloris, third-choice keeper Paulo Gazzaniga has been called upon and impressed.

“It’s so important to have goalkeepers who can play and perform, like Paulo. It’s so tough to be a goalkeeper and have to wait for your opportunity,” Pochettino said.

“The position is so special and so different, and so it is tough waiting for your opportunity.”
