Updates from Wednesday, Dec. 11

Danny Rose is back in contention for first-team football at Tottenham ahead of their Europa League clash with Anzhi Makhachkala.

Andre Villas-Boas told the club's official website:

We will look to try and give Danny Rose a couple of minutes in this game and Christian Eriksen is also selected, so there is the possibility that he could play some minutes as well.

Spurs have a shortage of left-backs after Jan Vertonghen was sidelined, so Rose's comeback could be well timed. Jack Wilson of the Daily Star was first to report the defender's return:

Danny has returned to Tottenham training and could make his long-awaited comeback in tomorrow's Europa League match against Anzhi Makhachkala ...

The left-back was training with his team-mates on a foggy Wednesday morning in Enfield and could feature against Anzhi at White Hart Lane.
