Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld will not be fit to feature in this weekend’s derby clash between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs will be looking to bounce back from their Champions League elimination at the hands of AS Monaco on Tuesday, but they will have to do it without their Belgian defender, and against a Chelsea side with a potent attack.

When asked by Sky Sports News HQ if there was any possibility that the Belgian central defender would be in contention for selection at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Spurs manager Pochettino replied “no chance.”

The Belgian has not featured for Tottenham since the 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on October 15 due to a knee injury.
