Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele wants to play both games this week

The Belgian believes he is fit and ready to take on Anderlecht and Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has enjoyed a rich vein of form recently. The Belgian has scored in his last two appearances for the club - against Bournemouth and Aston Villa. That followed a man-of-the-match performance against Liverpool in what was Jurgen Klopp's first game in charge for The Reds.

It has been a tough time for the Belgian. He has suffered injury problems this season - which has restricted him to just nine appearances this season.

That has seen Dembele often rested and the belief appears to be that this week Dembele will only play against either Anderlecht or Arsenal - to conserve his fragile fitness.

But speaking to the press in Belgium this week Dembele is adamant he is at his best fitness and that he can play in both games.

He is quoted by RTBF as stating:

"I was injured for a month and a half. The succession of matches is felt but I would like to start the games against Anderlecht and Arsenal this weekend."

Tottenham fans would definitely like to see him play both. He has been in great form and when he is at his best it is tough to find a better player in his position throughout the Premier League.

If he can help them to Europa League and North London victory this week then his star will only shine brighter.
