Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said the midfielder was raring to go to get back into action.

“All the players want to play, no-one wants to rest”, said Pochettino at a press conference on Thursday.

“Dele yesterday was involved in the squad [against Bournemouth] but after was out of the 18.

“But this morning he said, ‘Gaffer I’m going to be ready.’ I said, ‘Relax, you need to train this morning and then we’ll see tomorrow’.”
