Hugo Lloris is ready to start for Tottenham after head coach Mauricio Pochettino reported a fully-fit squad ahead of Saturday’s match against Stoke.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper sustained a fractured wrist in pre-season and was only fit enough to start the season-opener at Manchester United from the bench, although he played 90 minutes for Spurs’ Under-21s against Everton on Monday.

Andros Townsend (shoulder) and Danny Rose (quad) are also back in contention, while Alex Pritchard marked his return from injury with two goals for the Under-21s against the Toffees. Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor have not been given squad numbers, while Roberto Soldado has travelled to Spain to discuss an exit.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Walker, Trippier, Yedlin, Rose, Walker, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Fazio, Wimmer, Dier, Mason, Bentaleb, Alli, Carroll, Dembele, Eriksen, Townsend, Chadli, Pritchard, Lamela, Kane
