Tottenham and Antonio Conte have received a boost this evening as Lucas Moura finally returns from injury and takes part in the U21 match against Arsenal.
Moura has only appeared eight times in the Premier League so far this season, with his minutes only just amounting to one full match of 90 minutes or so (TransferMarkt).
The Brazilian was struggling with a calf injury at the start of the season and, despite returning for a series of cameos off the bench in October and November, Moura once again succumbed to the injury just before the World Cup.
The winger was out for 42 days with the initial injury and then a further month during the second phase of the problem (TransferMarkt).
However, Tottenham’s hero of Amsterdam appears close to a first-team return as he lines up for the U21s in the North London Derby this evening.

Spurs Web Opinion:
Having Kane, Son, Richarlison, Kulusevski, Danjuma, and Moura all at Conte’s disposal would be huge. That’s enough to have three or four on the pitch at the start of a game, plus another two to come on as impact subs. We haven’t had that kind of depth since Conte took charge!
