Team news is out, and it's all good! Tottenham Hotspur have a clean bill of health leading into Saturday's home match against Stoke City, and the only thing that concerns Mauricio Pochettino is who he's going to select in the match day 18.

This means that Danny Rose and Hugo Lloris are both expected to start the match, and also midfielder Alex Pritchard, who has been recovering from an ankle injury picked up in this summer's U21 EUROs, is back in the frame for selection. It's unlikely that Pritch will be anywhere near the starting lineup, but it's possible he could get a bench nod.

As for Stoke, this was the big news to come out of the Brittania today.

It's thought oatcakes may start up top alongside Mame Diouf. Elsewhere, midfielder Marko Arnautovic and defender Marc Wilson will face late fitness tests, though Stoke boss Mark Hughes is hopeful they'll be ready for selection. New signing Xherdan Shaqiri will also be in the frame to start, though it's not clear whether Hughes will throw him into the side to face Spurs on Saturday.
