Aaron Lennon may give Tottenham boss Martin Jol a boost by making a surprise return against Arsenal on Saturday.
Lennon has yet to play this season following knee surgery
Lennon, 20, is back in full training following minor knee surgery in May and was close to making a comeback in the 3-3 draw at Fulham on 1 September.
The England winger could be plunged into action in the north London derby and Jol told Spurs' website: "That's a decision we have to make.
"He trained last week and looks good, although he lacks match practice."
Spurs could also have striker Darren Bent back in the frame, while Anthony Gardner and Benoit Assou-Ekotto have also returned to training.
Bent missed Tottenham's games against Manchester United and Fulham because of a thigh injury and was also forced to pull out of international duty with England.
Jol said: "It's very positive news for us. Darren Bent is back and looked in good form, he did everything in training with us.
"Benoit Ekotto and Anthony Gardner are also back and that gives us more options."
