Tottenham vs West Ham confirmed teams: Gareth Bale starts on bench, Dele Alli axed, Hammers unchanged from Leicester win
Gareth Bale has been named on the bench for Tottenham's Premier League clash with West Ham.

The 31-year-old rejoined Spurs on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last month.

And this is the first time he has made a Tottenham matchday squad in his second spell after recovering from a knee injury.

Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid in a then world record £85million deal in 2013.

With Harry Kane and Heung-min Son in fine goalscoring form, the Wales star will be itching to link up with them on the pitch.

Elsewhere, Dele Alli, who was heavily linked with a summer move to Paris Saint-Germain, has been dropped from the squad.
