Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele have been passed fit to return to action for Tottenham, who will still be without Deli Alli and Danny Rose for the derby against West Ham.

Eriksen and Dembele have returned to training following abdominal and thigh problems respectively and are available for selection this weekend.

Rose is out with a groin problem and is joined on the sidelines by defender Jan Vertonghen, who faces a lengthy spell out with a hamstring injury.

The news on Alli is more positive, though.

The England international is not available to face the Hammers but has been making good progress in his recovery from a hamstring problem and is expected to return to training next week.

Meanwhile, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Marko Arnautovic is fully fit for the Hammers.
