Mousa Dembele is fit to face Inter Milan - and Andre Villas-Boas hasn’t ruled out Emmanuel Adebayor’s chances of featuring in Thursday night’s Europa League Round of 16, first leg at the Lane.

Team news

Both players departed early from Sunday’s North London derby win.

‘Ade’ was actually stretchered off with a knee injury in the 67th minute while Mousa limped off after a heavy challenge two minutes from time.

Clint Dempsey (calf), Tom Huddlestone, Sandro and Younes Kaboul (all knee) remain sidelined.

“Mousa is okay,” reported Andre after training on Wednesday. “Ade still has a chance of being involved, so hopefully both will be available. Clint and Tom won’t be able to make it, Sandro and Younes are also still out.”
