Tottenham head into Saturday's crunch derby match against Arsenal at White Hart Lane with a fully fit squad for the first time in Mauricio Pochettino's reign.

Nabil Bentaleb has returned from the African Cup of Nation after playing and scoring for Algeria, while there are no injury or suspension worries for Pochettino to worry about.

“All the players are available and this is a very good thing for us,” Pochettino told Tottenham's official website. “It’s difficult for me to now pick the 18 players, but it’s better to have that competition.

"It’s important for all the team to be fit and available for Saturday.”

The likes of Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor, Vlad Chiriches and Etienne Capoue, all whom seemed likely to leave the club in the transfer window that just passed, are also available but it is unlikely they will make the match day squad, especially the former two.

Harry Kane will hope to continue his impressive season, while Christian Eriksen will be fundamental to any Tottenham success. Nacer Chadli could return to the starting line up in place of Erik Lamela, while Mousa Dembele and Paulinho may make way for Andros Townsend and Bentaleb.
