Ange Postecoglou issues Pedro Porro and Richarlison Tottenham injury update for Arsenal clash

Ange Postecoglou has provided the latest on Pedro Porro and Richarlison ahead of Tottenham vs Arsenal

Ange Postecoglou has stated that Pedro Porro and Richarlison are available for Sunday's North London Derby showdown against Arsenal. It is a huge game for both sides as Spurs eye up a top-four finish and the Gunners look to win the Premier League title.

During their 4-0 defeat against Newcastle United last time out, Tottenham were dealt a blow early in the second half with Porro having to come off through injury. Having two weeks to work on his fitness to ensure he is in a position to feature against Arsenal, the Spaniard is fit enough to return to the matchday squad.

Richarlison's return to the Tottenham squad will also come as a big boost to Postecoglou after his absence in recent weeks. The Brazilian last featured for the Lilywhites as a substitute in the draw at West Ham and then missed out in the Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United games due to a knee issue.

One player who will definitely miss out on the North London Derby is Destiny Udogie. The left-back will play no part in the rest of Spurs' season as the club confirmed last Sunday that the Italian has had to undergo surgery on a quadriceps injury that he sustained in training.

Oliver Skipp will also be absent for the North London Derby due to a "minor knock".

"Yeah I guess the first one more significant there was losing Destiny in this period," said Postecoglou when speaking to SPURSPLAY. "Bit disappointing for him and for us as he has been such an important player for us. So yeah unfortunately picking up an injury means the end of his season.

"Skippy's got a minor knock as well and he'll miss the weekend, so those are the two who are kind of out from last game. Pedro and Richy trained well this week and are both available."
