Tottenham Hotspur fans were treated to some good news on the injury front today as Spurs announced that four players were returning to training.
The announcement claimed that Tanguy Ndombele, Eric Dier, Kyle Walker-Peters, and Ryan Sessegnon had all returned to training and would be assessed ahead of the Palace match.
However, with seven games in the next 21 days, Pochettino will have to manage and rotate his squad carefully to avoid any further injuries of fatigue.
The Argentine manager insists that he has plenty of different options for Saturday’s match and that they will assess the returning players tomorrow.
Walker-Peters started the first three games of the season at right-back, and although he struggled at times, he certainly performed better than Sanchez against Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Ryan Sessegnon has yet to appear for Spurs at all since his move from Fulham in the summer, with the teenager able to play at left-back or left-wing.
Poch was asked today whether KWP would start against Palace and if Sess would debut (Football London): “We have plenty of options for Saturday. Of course, we played Davinson Sanchez. Kyle, after his injury, is with the group and Serge Aurier and on the other side we have Ben Davies, Danny Rose and Ryan Sessegnon. We need to assess tomorrow the cases of Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan and Kyle tomorrow what condition they are in. We have seven games in 21 days. It’s going to be tough and we need all at their best.”
