With Spurs captain Hugo Lloris suspended on Tuesday, Vorm faces a battle with Paul Gazzaniga to start the must-win Champions League group game against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley.

The 35-year-old Dutchman came off the bench after Lloris’s red card in the 2-2 draw at the Philips Stadion 13 days ago, but Gazzaniga started against West Ham in last week’s Carabao Cup win.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Monday he gave both an equal chance of starting the game.

But Vorm is out of contract next summer and he told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf: “I think I have a few good years for myself. My contract expires after this season, then we’ll see how it goes. I feel very good. Now I have to make sure that I stay fit. It’s always boring to sit on the bench or in the stands.”

Pochettino said of Gazzaniga: “His progression is fantastic. Of course, the credit is always for the players, but [we have] to give big credit to Toni Jimenez, the goalkeeping coach, who’s helping all the keepers to improve and grow.

“We were right when we signed him one-and-a-half years ago, because we believed and we knew him from Southampton. He’s still young for a keeper and has the potential to be top.”

Pochettino was cautious about Dele Alli’s chances of playing the full game. “It’s possible,” the Argentine said. “He needs to work a lot to get in his best condition to build his fitness. We’re helping him. The most important is he builds now his fitness and starts to feel strong again like before.”
