Injury news: Pochettino reports three returning Tottenham stars for Leicester clash

The north London side have received a boost ahead of their FA Cup tie with the Foxes.

Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed three Tottenham Hotspur stars are once again available for selection ahead of their FA Cup clash with Leicester City, according to the club's official website.

The Spurs boss has revealed that his squad is fully fit ahead of the Leicester game, meaning only Nabil Bentaleb - currently at the African Cup of Nations - is unavailable.

That means Erik Lamela, Federico Fazio and Vlad Chiriches have all recovered from their respective injury/health issues.

The news will come as a big boost to Pochettino ahead of tomorrow's FA Cup match with Leicester, especially with the second leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final against Sheffield United on the horizon in the coming week.

It will be intriguing to see whether the Tottenham boss persists with Eric Dier in central defence or restores Fazio to the starting line-up, while it will also be interesting to assess how he uses Lamela in the coming games.

Chiriches, meanwhile, is not a first-team regular but did feature in the last FA Cup round when Tottenham beat Burnley 4-2.

Their fourth-round clash with Leicester kicks off at White Hart Lane at 3pm tomorrow afternoon.
