Aaron Lennon faces fitness test

Aaron Lennon’s return in the nick of timeTottenham will give Aaron Lennon a late fitness test ahead of the clash with Chelsea to see if he has shaken off his injury.

The England winger was substituted in the win over Southampton with a tight hamstring, a problem that has plagued him all season, but he was taken off as a precaution on Saturday and should be available to play.

There will also be a late fitness test for attacking midfielder Mousa Dembele who, like Lennon, came off against Southampton with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Sandro (knee), Younes Kaboul (thigh) and William Gallas (calf) are unavailable.

Andre Villas-Boas will check on a number of his players to see if they have recovered form Saturday’s game and he will be looking for his team to show more zest in tonight’s match which is vital to their Champions League hopes.
