Tottenham Hotspur will welcome Andros Townsend and Moussa Dembele back from injury for the Premier League trip to Stoke City.

Both players have not featured since the draw with Southampton in April due to foot and groin problems but, having returned to training, they are set to both return to the Spurs team.

Kyle Walker and Ben Davies are both out for Tottenham, with the latter already ruled out for the rest of the season, while Mauricio Pochettino's side must win their final three games to stand any chance of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the Champions League.

"Ben Davies and Kyle Walker are still out," the Argentine manager added. "Andros Townsend and Moussa Dembele are back. They had small injuries but they are now fit. We train again on Friday and they will be available for selection for Stoke.

"Kyle is OK, he's having a slow recovery, we need to assess and analyse him every day. We're not sure if he's out of the rest of the season, but he's not sure if he'll be back."

One win in their last five games sees Tottenham's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League hang by a thread, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United on the verge of securing the places alongside Chelsea.

A sixth-place finish will ensure Tottenham will play Europa League football next season but the fight with seventh-placed Southampton looks set to go to the final day with one point separating the two sides.

Amid an uncertain maiden season at White Hart Lane, Pochettino has marginalised a number of players including Roberto Soldado, who has started one Premier League game since December 2014.

But the Tottenham boss insists Soldado could yet sneak back into the reckoning despite a harrowing two seasons in north London.

"I believe in the players and it is all in our head," he said. "You always need to get an opportunity to come back and recover your best level, why not.

"There are many reasons [why it has not worked out for him] and not only the culture. Always you have to be lucky and to arrive at the new club and develop your game. There is no one reason."
