Mousa Dembele has eased fears he was set for a spell on the sidelines after being stretchered off in Saturday's goalless draw at home to Everton.
The 28-year-old was forced off in strange circumstances early in the second half at White Hart Lane as he went down with a self-inflicted injury that saw Delle Ali replace him for the final 37 minutes of the stalemate.
But Dembele posted on Twitter that he now hopes to play a part in Tottenham's trip to Sunderland on September 13 after missing out on international duty with Belgium.
"Happy. No major injuries, hope to be back for our next Spurs game! #COYS," he wrote.
Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased with the news having opted against any additions to his squad as the transfer deadline loomed over Premier League clubs.
