Bale has been training with the team for the last two days and should be fit, while Jermain Defoe also looks set to return after a pelvis injury lay-off.

Aaron Lennon (knee) has not trained with the squad yet, but Villas-Boas still thinks the winger has a chance of playing. Sandro (knee) and centre-back Younes Kaboul (thigh) are unavailable.
