Tottenham's season is threatening to fall away after what has been a disappointing week where they lost 4-1 to Chelsea and conceded two goals in extra-time to lose to Wolves.
The Lilywhites went into the game against Wolves missing five players, James Maddison who has been the creative player won't kick a ball again until January.
Mickey ven de Ven also pulled his hamstring and is likely to be out for the same amount of time while Christian Romero, and Destiny Udogie were sent off in the game against Chelsea and missed the defeat.
To add insult to injury Richarlison also revealed he needed an operation and will also be out for at least a month, limiting numbers and quality heading into the game.
Postecoglou will however have young Italian defender Destiny Udogie after the international break, the defender has been one of the bright lights of the season and when he's played well Tottenham have played well.
The performance against Wolves can not be repeated if Spurs are to return to winning days something manager Ange Postecoglou admitted.
He said: "I can't fault the players' effort or commitment. It was always going to be a tough game anyway at Wolves. We just couldn't hold out.
"I thought we could have been more in the first half but I can't fault their effort and we have to go again and try to get back on track."
