Tottenham Hotspur take on Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon looking to put the pressure on their fellow top-four rivals with a win.
Spurs head into the final two games of the season sitting fifth in the Premier League table following Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, so qualification for next seasons Champions League is now out of their hands and the north Londoners will have to rely on either Arsenal or Chelsea dropping points to secure a top-four finish this term.
Their final away game is at the Britannia this Sunday and ahead of the clash boss Andre Villas-Boas has been giving his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon and gave TottenhamHotspur.com a team news and injury update, with the latest on Mousa Dembele’s fitness.
The Belgian midfielder missed the midweek stalemate after being forced off early last Saturday against Southampton with a muscle strain. However, AVB has confirmed Dembele is due back in training on Saturday and is expected to be fit and available for selection against the Potters.
“Mousa will train tomorrow with the team and we expect him to come back fully fit and be ready for selection,” Villas-Boas told TottenhamHotspur.com
Villas-Boas also confirmed to the clubs official website that William Gallas, Younes Kaboul and Sandro remain sidelined through injury and will be unavailable for this weekends action. There had been hope that defender Kaboul may be fit to take part in the run-in after playing for the under-21’s but he’s not yet being considered for a first team recall and it looks highly unlikely we’ll see him again this season.
