Victor Wanyama is likely to be fit enough to play a part for Tottenham against West Ham this weekend despite suffering a slight injury on international duty, according to the London Evening Standard.

On Sunday, Wanyama scored a penalty during Kenya’s 3-0 victory over Ethiopia, which took the Harambee Stars one step closer to 2019 AFCON qualification.

The Kenya captain eventually limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, sounding alarm bells back at Spurs who already have a number of injuries among their first-team players.

But thankfully, the Standard claims Wanyama’s problem is not major and he should be fit enough to feature in Saturday’s London derby at West Ham.

There is no news yet on Mousa Demele, who has been out since last month and has missed matches for Belgium during the current international break.

If Dembele is out for the West Ham game, Wanyama might start – although Mauricio Pochettino could opt for a central midfield partnership of Eric Dier and Harry Winks instead.

Regardless, Wanyama’s availability can only come as good news for Tottenham.
