Tottenham are set to be without their entire leadership group for the next few games.
Captain Heung-min Son is set to be away for 4 to 5 weeks with his national team for the upcoming Asian Cup games.
James Maddison is out with an injury since the Chelsea game and is not expected back until mid or late January.
And Cristian Romero is also expected to be out for 4 to 5 weeks after picking up an injury against Everton.
This means Spurs will go into the next game with their captain and the two vice-captains, all unavailable, leaving Ange to make a pick for the captaincy in their absence.
Several names are being considered to don the Tottenham armband and Spurs correspondent Alasdair Gold has named Guglielmo Vicario, Rodrigo Bentancur & Ben Davies as the potential candidates.

The Italian goalkeeper, Vicario, undoubtedly exhibits the qualities of a leader, showing vocal presence in his area. His passion for the club is evident, and fans admire that.
Rodrigo Bentancur has recently returned from his injury earlier than expected, featuring in Spurs’ 3-1 victory over Brighton. The Uruguayan midfielder, known for his fearlessness on the pitch, has become a favoured choice among supporters to captain the club. His positive attitude adds to his appeal as a potential leader.
Lastly, Ben Davies is also being considered for the captaincy. The 30-year-old is the longest-serving player in the club after Hugo Lloris’ departure.
Who do you think should be wearing the armband against Burnley?
