Team News: Ange Postecoglou provides injury update on James Maddison

Ange Postecoglou has provided a team news update ahead of tomorrow’s match against Bournemouth at this afternoon’s press conference at Hotspur Way.

Tottenham picked up their first win of the new Premier League campaign last weekend with a 2-0 victory at home to Manchester United and will be looking to build upon it with their visit to the south coast in the lunchtime kick-off.

There were concerns for James Maddison shortly after the final whistle after the summer signing was spotted wearing a protective boot and walking with the help of crutches as he left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening.

Ange Postecoglou delivers James Maddison injury update

The England international was sent for a scan on the injury on Tuesday despite telling reporters at the weekend that the crutches and boot were just a precautionary measure (The Athletic).

Postecoglou has now revealed that Maddison will be available for the match at the Vitality Stadium

He told Football.London: “Madders trained today unrestricted. We’ll see how he holds up but at the moment he will be available.

“I think it was the incident when Romero got brought down, he had a shot and it was a block tackle. His ankle was a bit sore after that but medical team looked after him. There was no real push to have him available. It was down to him. People would have seen him in a moon boot but it was more precautionary. He has felt good and probably could have trained yesterday.”
