After being forced off at half-time during Monday’s 2-0 win at Fulham, Mudryk has made a full recovery from his quad issue and is now available for the upcoming trip to Turf Moor.
Caicedo also suffered a collision with Willian late in the Fulham match, but he has since regained fitness.
Pochettino stated, “Both players are in the squad, and we will decide whether they can start or not.”
Chukwuemeka has recovered from his injury and is ready to make a return.
Pochettino confirmed that captain Reece James will be available to play once he has served his one-match ban for verbally abusing referee Jarred Gillett. James is expected to return for the match against Arsenal after the international break.
Pochettino added, “Reece was training with the group. It’s unfortunate that he’s suspended for tomorrow’s match. We are pleased with his recovery progress and he will have the opportunity to be involved after his suspension ends.”
Nicolas Jackson is back from his one-match suspension. However, Armando Broja’s performance against Fulham may make a case for him to retain his place in the team.
Ben Chilwell and Romeo Lavia remain sidelined.
