The Wales forward who was rested over the international break would "probably" play according to Mourinho. "I am not going to tell you if he is going to play, what I can tell you is that he is working very well, he is working in the way he was not able to do for a long time," he told Sky Sports.
"The last week, especially Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, the planning of the sessions had a big focus on him and he is in pretty good condition." West Ham is placed tenth on the table with two wins and two losses in four games. Arthur Masuaku's availability will be a major boost for the Hammers as they take on fine-tuned Spurs. They havse signed Algerian winger Said Benrahma on a season-long loan from Championship (second-tier) side Brentford.
