Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp faces an anxious wait to see if his trusted assistant will be with him on the touchline at White Hart Lane.
Bosnian Zeljko Buvac, known as 'the Brain' in Klopp's coaching team, is yet to join up with his manager as it is understood there is a delay over his work permit clearance.
Klopp has known Buvac since they played together at Mainz in the 1990s and has spent 14 years as his assistant manager at first Mainz and then Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp has been working with Liverpool players not on international duty this week along with his other assistant Peter Krawietz.
Klopp, who has signed a three-year contract worth £6million a year, described the decision to appoint him as 'the biggest honour' in his career despite admitting that the club is currently not in its best shape.
The new manager has also insisted he will give the current crop an opportunity to impress before he considers signing new players when the transfer window reopens.
'I am not interested in how much money I will be allowed to spend in January', Klopp told Bild.
'It is only October and I don't even know how many games there are left until the winter. But we clearly have plenty of games left and we will be taking a look at our own players first.'
