Five Tottenham players back in squad to play West Brom

Tottenham Hotspur will have Younes Kaboul, Danny Rose, Nacer Chadli, Mousa Dembele and Emmanuel Adebayor available to them when they take on West Brom on Sunday. All five players did not make the trip to Belgrade for Thursday's Europa League match, but it was just a matter of rest for them all and they will be in the squad as Spurs return to league play.

Spurs struggled without the five players on Thursday. They had all off the possession against Partizan, but created very few chances. That won;t cut it back in the league, and Mauricio Pochettino will likely put at least four of the rested players into the starting XI against West Brom, with Dembele possibly making it 5-for-5.

With so many fixtures, it will be interesting to see how Pochettino rests the squad. He gave five players a break on Thursday, but what about the first choice players who went to Serbia and played? Could Jan Vertonghen, Erik Lamela or Etienne Capoue be rested on Sunday?

It is still unclear whether Andros Townsend will be in Sunday's team as he deals with a dead leg suffered on Thursday. Kyle Walker is still out as he recovers from his abdominal surgery.
