Nkunku, who joined from RB Leipzig last year and has only been in four games, won’t be available for him.

Nkunku had a major knee injury during the preseason and then developed a hip issue while working out during the Christmas and New Year break.

According to Pochettino, Nkunku is not accessible. It’s unfortunate. He’s still getting better.

He had some hip pain, but he is now getting better.

It’s not a major problem. It just postponed the potential for availability once more.
