Tottenham injury update

Here is the latest Tottenham team news before they face Manchester City.

Speaking before the Manchester United United game, Ange Postecoglou described James Maddison as ‘getting closer’ to a return, with an optimistic tone that he can be ready after the winter break:

“It depends when he starts training,” explained the Tottenham boss. “If he starts training early [this] week, potentially, but then again you have to see how they train with the first-team, how they feel. I think we’ve got three games in that week after the Man City game so I’d hazard to say he should be…”

Next up, Dejan Kulusevski was said to be ‘desperate to play’ vs Manchester United but went downhill having trained shortly before the trip, according to Postecoglou, which suggests he should be ready to return this weekend.

Finally, Tottenham lost Giovani Lo Celso to a fresh muscle injury in midweek. The exact diagnosis is yet to be revealed.
