The German star missed yesterday’s 3-3 thriller against Hoffenheim, as Dortmund chief Michael Zorc admitted he is “not expecting miracles”.

When asked about his Spurs availability, Favre revealed: “I think we will decide that nearer the time.

“But I am not expecting a miracle cure by Wednesday.”

The news is a huge boost for Tottenham, with Reus enjoying one of the best seasons of his career so far.

Playing in a No10 role, Reus has scored ten goals and dished out 11 assists in all competitions this term.

Once again, Dortmund may lean on young England star Jadon Sancho – who was in scintillating form against Hoffenheim.

The ex-Manchester City man was involved in all three of his sides goals, before Reiss Nelson came off the bench to spoil his day.

The on-loan Arsenal ace entered the action with 20 minutes to play at 3-0 down, as Hoffenheim clawed their way back to secure a thrilling draw.
