Tottenham Ace Could Make Injury Comeback Against Arsenal

By on March 3, 2016

Tottenham Hotspur are hoping for an injury boost with Mousa Dembele in with a chance of making his return against Arsenal this weekend.

Dembele has missed Tottenham’s last three games after suffering a groin injury during the first half of their FA Cup defeat by Crystal Palace last month.

However, the Belgian international is back in training and Mauricio Pochettino has now confirmed that the midfielder has a chance to make his comeback in the North London Derby this weekend.

Spurs welcome Arsenal to White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime and Dembele will be given a late fitness test after Friday’s training session to see if he’ll be available for the game.

Pochettino is quoted by the Express as saying:

“He [Dembele] has a chance. We will assess him tomorrow after the last training session.”

It would be a welcome boost for Tottenham if Dembele is passed fit as the 28-year-old was a huge miss as Spurs missed the chance to go top of the Premier League table with a 1-0 defeat at West Ham last night.

However, with Arsenal also slipping to a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea, Spurs remain three points clear of their rivals heading in to what could be one of the most important North London Derbies in recent memory.
