Jose Mourinho will look to build on his side's 6-1 win over Manchester United before the international break as Spurs welcome in-form West Ham to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And there could be a boost in the shape of Gareth Bale returning to full fitness, as the Welshman has been in full training during the break. Mourinho has said that he could feature on Sunday, likely from the bench.

Eric Dier missed England’s game with Denmark on Wednesday with a hamstring injury and needs to be assessed, with Toby Alderweireld on standby to deputise. Giovanni Lo Celso will miss the game through injury, as will Japhet Tanganga.

West Ham will welcome back David Moyes to the touchline after he missed the last two games quarantining after contracting COVID-19, and he’ll be hoping to carry on the winning streak after Alan Irvine oversaw two wins against Wolves and Leicester in his absence.

Moyes has said he’s feeling fine and he’s happy with how dangerous his side look, after a poor start to the season which saw them lose to Newcastle and Arsenal before turning things around.

Arthur Masuaku, Ryan Fredericks and Issa Diop are all doubtful for the Hammers, with Vladimir Coufal likely to continue at right-back in place of Fredericks after a solid debut.

There was frustration in the transfer market as Said Benrahma’s move from Brentford collapsed after a failed medical on Friday, meaning the club will go until at least January with a winger less than they started the season with, after Felipe Anderson left for Porto earlier this month.
