Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has now held his pre-game press conference ahead of the London derby clash against West Ham United this weekend and there’s positive news on the injury front.

It’s certainly good news on the Christian Eriksen font and Mousa Dembele will give Poch additional options ahead of the tie, but being back out on the training pitch, the level of their inclusion will depend on how much training they have managed to get into their tanks.
It can only be a positive though as we go for our seventh win of the Premier League campaign in 2018/19 and further offset the recent record against the Hammers and it certainly pleased these fans.

The news wasn’t so great when it came to Dele Alli (hamstring), Danny Rose (groin) and Jan Vertonghen (hamstring).
They are all out of contention for the game so the returning duo certainly helps offset their losses as we go in search of another positive result. At least in the case of Alli, he’s expected to return to training next week so shouldn’t be too far off.
