Tottenham star Dembele back for Arsenal game

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas admitted that Moussa Dembele could be involved in the crucial Premier League clash with rivals Arsenal; amidst reports that the Belgian winger could face an operation on his hip.

The 25-year-old could well be available for the match against fierce rivals Arsenal, according to the Portuguese boss: "We could either give him surgery immediately, but there is no certainty it will cure the problem, or he could rest, have manual therapy, train in the swimming pool.

"That allows the player the possibility of return within 10-15 days, so we are taking that option at the moment, without having the surgery."
