Tottenham have been handed a major team selection boost ahead of their visit to Huddersfield on Saturday with Christian Eriksen now available for the tie.
Eriksen, 25, missed the Tuesday night win over APOEL Nicosia in the Champions League through illness, but Spurs have now confirmed their official Twitter account that the midfield maestro is back to fitness and ready for this weekend’s Premier League action.

Although Mauricio Pochettino will be boosted by the return of Eriksen, he is still without a number of players for the trip to Yorkshire with Serge Aurier serving his one-match ban while Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele and Erik Lamela are still injured.
Spurs will be looked to build on their good form at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday after a tense derby win over West Ham at the London Stadium last week.
The 3-0 midweek win over APOEL will only have boosted confidence, but the long trip to Cyprus may also leave some of the squad a bit jaded for their return to league action.
As a result, that means Eriksen may come straight back into the starting line-up against the Terriers and hope to build on his impressive form.
In all competitions this season, the Denmark international has scored two goals and supplied four assists in seven appearances.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs have agreed terms for a new contract with this defender.
