Tottenham Hotspur make a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League clash on 11 December and the two teams have been handed a defensive injury boost for the upcoming fixture.

According to The Sun, Luke Shaw will be fit to face the north London club, while Mauricio Pochettino will welcome defender Ben Davies for the clash against the Red Devils on Sunday.

The former Southampton left-back last featured in United's 4-1 win over West Ham United in the EFL Cup quarter-final. He was replaced at the break by Daley Blind and Jose Mourinho confirmed the 21-year-old picked up an injury in his pre-match press conference before the Everton tie.

Shaw missed United's 1-1 draw against the Merseyside club and the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager started Matteo Darmian in the left-back position. However, the England international is fit to face Tottenham.

The Portuguese tactician will be delighted with Eric Bailly's return from injury. The Ivory Coast international picked up a knee ligament injury in his side's 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in October and he started for the first time in the Premier League side's 2-0 Europa League win over Zorya Luhansk on 8 December.

Shaw and Bailly's return to face Tottenham will be a much needed boost for Mourinho to welcome the side who are one spot above them in the Premier League table, with six points difference.

Meanwhile, Davies has handed Pochettino a much needed injury boost to face United. The 23-year-old last featured in his side's 1-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League and picked up an ankle injury in the same fixture.

The Welsh international's return could provide the Argentine manager more options while selecting his back four for this weekend's clash. However, Tottenham are set to be without the services of Vincent Janssen as the Dutch international is recovering from the ankle injury. Harry Kane will lead his side's attack and even if Janssen is fit, he would be forced to settle for a place on the bench.
