Ben Davies has seemingly grown a fanbase among Tottenham Hotspur’s following since becoming a regular feature in Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
The Wales international assumed the left-back role when Danny Rose suffered a knee injury in January, and he has since made it his own following a rocky start.
The North London outfit were without Davies for the visit of Swansea City at Wembley last weekend due to a knock that he picked up against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.
Despite creating a handful of chances, Spurs were unable to break the deadlock and had to settle for a goalless draw with the Swans.
On Saturday, Pochettino’s men will face rivals West Ham United at the London Stadium, and Davies is expected to return.

According to football.london, the Argentine told reporters in his pre-match press conference that the Welshman has recovered from a minor ankle injury.
“He struggled last week with his ankle. I told you about the knock against Dortmund, but I think now he is ready.”
After hearing the news, fans were delighted to welcome Davies back into the squad.
Thank god for that 😂
