Serge Aurier is expected to return to action for Tottenham against Wolfsberger on Wednesday, according to Football London.

The defender has missed the last four matches with a calf problem, meaning Jose Mourinho has been rotating Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga at right-back.

Tanganga started against West Ham United on Sunday but was substituted for Doherty at half-time as Spurs rallied after the break.

But Doherty didn’t do enough to suggest he should stay in the team, suggesting Mourinho will reinstate Aurier the moment he’s fit enough to play.

And Football London believes Wednesday’s second leg against Wolfsberger in the Europa League Round of 32 is likely to be the game in which Aurier returns.

On the other flank, Sergio Reguilon made a surprise return to the starting line-up at West Ham, so he is likely to be rested in midweek with Ben Davies coming back into the team.

Giovani Lo Celso remains sidelined and may not play a part for some time.

Hopefully Aurier can give Tottenham some attacking thrust down the right side, potentially combining with Gareth Bale – who appears to be rediscovering his form.
