Dembele featured for Tottenham in the Premier League game against Watford away from home at Vicarage Road.
The Belgium international midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the game ended in a 1-1 draw.
The former AZ and Fulham star has had injury issues this season, but the 30-year-old is now fully fit.
Spurs manager Pochettino has said that Dembele was fantastic against Watford and has praised his performance.
Pochettino told Football.London about Dembele: “Yes, it was very good for him, in the way he's been building his fitness in the last few weeks and how we've been handling his situation. It's important. Today was very good, a fantastic performance.”
Dembele has started six matches and made four substitute appearances in the Premier League so far this season.
The Belgian is a very good midfielder, who is only going to get better as the season progresses and as he gets more playing time.
The draw against Watford at Vicarage Road means that Tottenham are pretty much out of the running for the Premier League title this season.
