Neither player, at present, is expected to start against Spurs given their limited involvement so far in this campaign.

Fraser has played just 55 minutes of Premier League across four appearances. Krafth, meanwhile, lined up in the opening day defeat to West Ham but has made only one appearance since.

Both players were unused substitutes during the 1-1 draw at Watford.
