Aurier returns for Cherries clash

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs have Serge Aurier in contention to face Bournemouth following his ban as boss Mauricio Pochettino ponders rotating his squad.

Pochettino’s men have a big trip to Real Madrid on Wednesday in the Champions League so there are likely to be changes against the Cherries with that clash in mind.

Dele Alli should play against Bournemouth even though he’s still suspended in Europe’s elite club competition, while full-back Aurier is back following his recent suspension.

Christian Eriksen could be rested after struggling with illness over the international break but the game is set to come too soon for Mousa Dembele, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela, who are all back in first-team training but not yet fit.

Victor Wanyama remains sidelined as he works on his fitness.
