Perisic is in good touch for Tottenham Hotspur and will hope to continue his good spell of form.

Marcelo Brozovic is currently out due to a hamstring injury. The 29-year-old Inter midfielder is expected to return early November and jet to Qatar.
Brozovic is a work-horse in the midfield and could play a crucial role alongside Modric for Croatia.
