Andre Villas-Boas reports that Aaron Lennon is available for Saturday's North London derby at the Emirates.

Aaron, Kyle Walker and Jermain Defoe all withdrew from England duty earlier this week after picking up hamstring injuries at City last weekend.

Andre said on Thursday: "Most of the England boys who were carrying heavy legs have done one more recovery session. They were struggling. Lennon had a scan, but he’s okay. I think all three will be up for selection."

Mousa Dembele remains out with a hip injury and Andre said we're seeing 'good development' from our longer-term injuries, Scott Parker, Younes Kaboul and Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
