Tim Sherwood has revealed that Andros Townsend and Mousa Dembele are in contention to face Everton at White Hart Lane.

The England international hasn’t featured for the north London club since a 2-1 loss to West Ham United in December due to a hamstring injury.

He’s champing at the bit to return

The 22-year-old was one of Tottenham’s standout performers in the early part of the season, scoring once in 14 Premier League appearances.

And Sherwood revealed that Townsend has a chance of facing top-four rivals Everton on Sunday.

“We’re positive on Andros and he has a chance (for Everton), he’s up for selection,” said Sherwood. “He’s champing at the bit to return.”

Meanwhile, Belgium international Mousa Dembele missed Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Hull City at the KC Stadium last weekened after picking up an ankle injury.

However, Sherwood expects the former Fulham midfielder to be in contention to earn a starting spot for the clash against the Toffees.

“He’s fine. He’s back out training again and he’s in the frame to start against Everton,” Sherwood added.
