JAN Vertonghen “rolled” his ankle in Wednesday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory at Fulham and manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted the defender is a doubt for Saturday’s match at Sunderland.

Moussa Dembele’s ongoing hip complaint ruled him out of the Fulham clash at the last minute, but after resting he could come back into contention.

Full-back Danny Rose has made a tentative return to training, but is not yet ready for a playing comeback.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Archer, Walker, Naughton, Vertonghen, Chiriches, Dawson, Kaboul, Fryers, Sandro, Capoue, Dembele, Paulinho, Lamela, Lennon, Townsend, Chadli, Sigurdsson, Holtby, Adebayor, Defoe, Soldado.
