Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be without the services of Kyle Walker for the Aston Villa clash, according to the Evening Standard.

The 24-year-old collided with Burnley full-back Kieran Trippier in the first half and injured his foot in the process. He was replaced just after the start of the second half during his side's goalless draw against the Clarets at Turf Moor.

The north London club's manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that the injury is not serious. The former Southampton boss said after the match: "We expect and we hope that it's not a big issue [Walker's injury]."

However, the England international has not recovered from the foot injury and is reportedly set to miss Tottenham's league clash against Villa at White Hart Lane. The Daily Mail claims the club are confident that Walker does not have a broken foot, which could come as good news to Spurs supporters.

The right-back underwent scans earlier on Tuesday. Tottenham's medical team are waiting to take a decision on Walker's fitness, but are unable to do so because the swelling on his foot has still not reduced.

After the Villa clash, Tottenham make a trip to St James' Park to face Newcastle United. The Evening Standard report suggests that Walker could also be doubtful for the clash against the Tyneside club.

Walker now joins Hugo Lloris, who is also set to miss the Premier League clash against Villa this weekend. The French international collided with Walker during Tottenham's 4-3 victory over Leicester City in March and since then has been on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Tottenham brought in Pochettino from Southampton before the start of this season. The Argentine boss replaced Tim Sherwood, who is now in charge at Villa. The English manager returns to White Hart Lane for the first time since he was shown the exit door.

Sherwood claims he was successful during his time at Tottenham and heaped praise on the north London side's chairman Daniel Levy, despite getting the sack.

"I knew it would be a tough job at Tottenham and it proved that. But I was very successful, both as a development coach and as a manager," Sherwood said, as quoted by BBC.

"I've communicated with Levy. I've got a lot of respect for him. He makes decisions as chairman that he thinks are in the best interests of his club.

"Tottenham are in a much better position now than before Daniel Levy came in - because I was there the day he walked into the club," the Villa manager added.
