Tim Sherwood confirmed this afternoon at his pre-match press conference that Mousa Dembele was back in contention after coming through 90 minutes for the under-21’s on Monday unscathed, so the Belgian international is expected to come straight back in to face his former side.
Nacer Chadli could be the man to make way with Sherwood likely to stick with the majority of the side that came from three-goals down to salvage a 3-3 draw at West Brom last weekend.
The Spurs boss has little options to mix things up in defence as Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker and Michael Dawson remain unavailable. Striker Roberto Soldado has returned to training but isn’t likely to feature just yet.

Christian Eriksen and Aaron Lennon are almost certain to retain their places and Paulinho is favourite to start in the centre of midfield ahead of youngster Nabil Bentaleb.
