Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura has suffered a setback in his bid to return to fitness, according to Football.London.

The 30-year-old has not featured for the north Londoners since appearing as a late substitute in Tottenham’s second Premier League game of the season which came in a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Reliable journalist Alasdair Gold revealed within his piece that Moura had returned to training this week following inflammation in his tendon and had participated in most of last week’s sessions in the build-up to the north London derby before suffering a setback.

Moura is said to have not been able to train since experiencing the issue which led Antonio Conte to admit after the 3-1 defeat at the Emirates that the Brazilian is some way off returning once more (SpursPlay).

Moura’s setback could not have come at a worse time for Tottenham with Dejan Kulusevski also currently on the sidelines.

Tottenham are about to embark on a hectic fixture schedule with a game almost every three days this month which will put further pressure on the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Richarlison to play more regularly, with Bryan Gil the lone attack-minded player on the bench at Arsenal.
