Defoe set for return


Jermain Defoe - Header

Jermain Defoe has confirmed that will be resuming training on Monday and expects to be fit for the trip to Sunderland.

Defoe has been absent for Spurs’ last three games with a hamstring injury and had initially been ruled out for a few weeks.

However, the striker is happy with his recovery from the injury and plans to restart full training this week, with one eye on being part of the squad to face Sunderland.

“It was nothing major, I just pulled up in training.

“When I first did it, I thought it was bad. When I do get little knocks I tend to recover really quickly.

“I was running the next day, which was a good sign, and it’s really good.

“I think I will train tomorrow and I’ll play next week definitely.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Arguably the second team i.e. Niko on the left, Crouch and Gud up front and Bentley on the right are playing better than samuel's team. Tough to drop players in form.

    Tough call but I think this is my team….

    best line up : gomes corluka, dawson, bassong, BAE
    lennon,,huddlestone,palacios, Bale, defoe , crouch.

    Pav on early in the second if crouch is poor. Late subs would be Mod and Niko.

  2. did you not see walker on the right on saturday! he looks quality on the ball and has pace.
    he is is arguably not as trustworthy as charlie at the back but he has been making mistakes recently.

    this would be my team, (asuming lennon wont be back for a while) :

    Walker, Dawson, Bassong, Bale
    Niko, Hudd, Palacios, Mod,
    Defoe, Pav.

    eidur could play in the centre if harry is still worried about wilson's fitness/yellow cards .. but we could do will his metal in midfeils against scum, chelski and man u.

    either way we have croouch, bentley and eidur to come on the change things if needed … not bad considering our injuries!!


  3. Best line-up at the moment I think (if Defoe and/or Pav coming back)
