Davies, 24, has been in inspired form for Spurs this season in the absence of Danny Rose at left wing-back, but missed the last two fixtures through illness.
The Wales international was a notable absentee in the 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Saturday, however it remains to be seen whether or not he will be fully fit to take part against Liverpool this weekend as Premier League action resumes.
The ex-Swansea full-back has made eight appearances across all competitions for Spurs this term, scoring two goals and supplying two assists in the process, proving that he is more than capable of challenging Rose for his first-team spot.

N’Koudou, 22, is yet to start a game for Tottenham this campaign, having only made three appearances off the bench across all competitions.
He was introduced late on in the 1-0 win over Bournemouth last weekend after struggling with a foot injury, but now, after a short setback, is back in the fold to get himself in the squad against Liverpool.
