Dejan Kulusevski a doubt for North London derby due to hamstring injury

Dejan Kulusevski has suffered a suspected hamstring injury two days before Tottenham Hotspur play Arsenal.

The Sweden winger has had a scan after returning to the club from international duty, on which he completed a total of 173 minutes. His fitness will be assessed on Friday, with the North London derby kicking off at 12.30pm on Saturday.

Kulusevski, having been dropped to the bench because of Richarlison’s recent good form, returned to the Tottenham starting line-up two weeks ago for the 6-2 win against Leicester City.

Kulusevski, Son Heung-min and Richarlison are competing for the two winger positions, with Harry Kane a guaranteed starter up front. Son scored for South Korea against both Costa Rica and Cameroon, and Richarlison hit three against Ghana and Tunisia.
