Tottenham have received an early boost ahead of their clash with West Ham.

Spurs ace Tanguy Ndombele has impressed since making his big money move from Lyon in the summer.

The 22-year-old limped off at half-time against Sheffield United on Saturday.

France manager Didier Deschamps confirmed that the injury is not a serious one, however, when speaking to French media outlet L’Equipe:

“It’s not very bad, he has a little worry that should be resolved within 48 hours. If I had uncertainty, I would have made the decision (to call someone else up), but that’s not the case.”

Tottenham and West Ham are currently in the midst of really poor runs.

Spurs have taken just three points from their last five Premier League games. And they currently sit in 13th spot in the table.

The Hammers, meanwhile, are winless in six league games, and they have slumped down to 16th place.

Both sides desperately need a win, and a defeat for either team could lead to Manuel Pellegrini or Mauricio Pochettino losing their job.

With both teams in such need of all three points, it should be a great game of football on display at the London Stadium.

And having Ndombele available for selection will be a massive boost for Tottenham.
