Tottenham latest, team news ahead of Chelsea clash, latest on striker rumour

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this New Years' Eve.

Tottenham will have all their players available for tomorrow's game with Chelsea tomorrow evening at White Hart Lane.

Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that midfielder Nabil Bentaleb will return to the side after he missed the 0-0 draw with Manchester United through illness, and there are no fresh injury concerns.

Spurs know the kind of task they face when they take on Jose Mourinho's side having faced them a month earlier at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues ran out 3-0 winners.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has called for the side to be focussed against the league leaders, telling the club's website: "They want to give you confidence with the ball and then with the smallest mistake they punish you.

"We are aware of that.

"It will be a tough game and we need concentration and desire in front of our crowd to get a great performance.

"We need to keep going. Every game is different and we need a lot of energy for another big game."

Spurs have been strongly linked with West Bromwich Albion's Saido Berahino for much of the build-up to this winter's transfer window, with Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wanting to strengthen his forward line.

Some of the figures that have been quoted have been in excess of £20 million, but TalkSport have suggested he could leave the club for £14 million by forcing a move.
