Bad news for Hammers as Spurs trio set to return

West Ham have been hit with a major blow, with the news that three Spurs players are set to return for the derby after the international break.

The Hammers return to action in a highly-charged derby clash, and it will be a must-win for both teams. 

However, Spurs are set to be boosted by the returns of right-back Serge Aurier and midfielders Mousa Dembele and Christian Eriksen.

Both Aurier and Dembele have been struggling with thigh injuries, while Eriksen has been battling an abdominal issue.

The three should all be available for selection, however, according to Football London.

Elsewhere, Jan Vertonghen will be out with a hamstring injury.

Spurs have enjoyed a strong start to the season, and are currently fifth with 18 points from eight matches.
