Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas does not feel that his players will struggle for fitness against Chelsea following the international break.

Spurs host their London rivals in the day's early kick-off, meaning they trained together on Friday for the first time since several members of the squad travelled around the world to represent their national teams.

But Villas-Boas does not anticipate any international hang-over from his squad ahead of the fixture against his former club. He said: "I certainly don't expect any problems. Lots of players have recovery sessions as normal."
