Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has recovered fitness ahead of the home clash with Nottingham Forest in the League Cup third round.
The England international picked up a dead leg last week in the goalless draw in Serbia against Partizan Belgrade last week and will hope to return to the starting line-up.
"Andros is fully fit and maybe has an opportunity to play,” said head coach Mauricio Pochettino after training on Tuesday. “Everyone else is okay, the squad is fit.”
Townsend could inject some much needed pace and directness, and with Spurs have an indifferent start to the season first team places are still very much up for grabs.
The tie against Championship leaders presents both an opportunity and a potential banana skin for Pochettino. Under Stuart Pearce, Forest are unbeaten so far this season, while Tottenham have not won in four games, and played dreadfully on Sunday in the home defeat to West Brom.
“They are an aggressive team, a strong team, they press high and try to play,” Pochettino told the club's offical site. “There are no surprises for tomorrow. We have to be ready and to have the same level of aggression because we expect a tough game and we have to be ready.
"After the loss against West Brom we need to recover our confidence, try to win, to have a good performance and go into the next round.”
Fans looking for improved performance
