Tottenham Injury Boost: Key Man Set To Make Comeback Against Liverpool

By on January 17, 2018

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is set to return to full training and is in-line to make his long-awaited comeback against Liverpool next month, according to ESPN.

Alderweireld has been on the sidelines since suffering a serious hamstring injury during Tottenham’s Champions League victory over Real Madrid back in early November.

However, the centre-back is now finally on the road to recovery after beginning light outdoor training and ESPN claim he will resume full training with the rest of the squad next week.

The Belgian international will miss the upcoming Premier League games against Southampton and Manchester United as well as the FA Cup clash with Newport County this month.

But as long as there are no setbacks when he returns to full training, Tottenham expect Alderweireld to be available for the trip to Anfield at the start of February.

The news will come as a huge boost to the north Londoners as Alderweireld has been a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven so it will be a relief to have him available for the second half of the season.

Danny Rose is also currently on the sidelines with the left-back undergoing treatment after aggravating a serious knee injury that had kept him out for over six months.

The England international is also expected to miss the games against Southampton and Newport County but ESPN claim Rose should be back for the visit of Manchester United at the end of January.


However, Harry Winks is expected to spent a little longer on the sidelines as the report says he has been ruled out for at least another two weeks due to an ankle injury.

Winks initially suffered the problem back in November and after playing through the pain, the midfielder decided to rest the injury and hasn’t featured since Boxing Day.

ESPN say Winks won’t be fit to face Southampton on Sunday or for the trip to Newport next weekend but is hoping to be available again during the early stages of February.
