Tottenham boost: Dejan Kulusevski returns to training ahead of Arsenal clash

This Sunday it’s the north London derby and Spurs have been handed a big injury boost ahead of the match...

Sunday is the north London derby and once again the stakes are massive.

Arsenal are pushing for the title and sit five points clear at the top, meanwhile, Tottenham are looking to reduce the gap on the top four.

Ahead of the game, Antonio Conte’s team have been handed a major injury boost.

Kulusevski back, Richarlison and Bentancur still absent

Dejan Kulusevski is back in training ahead of the north London derby.

The Swede has missed Spurs’ last three matches with a minor injury.

Conte’s side often have much better fortunes when the winger is playing.

However, it is looking likely that both Richarlison and Rodrigo Bentancur will miss out.

The duo returned from the World Cup with injuries.

Richarlison picked up a thigh injury, whilst Bentancur suffered a minor groin tear.

Richarlison would have been a great option to have on the bench, but in the case of Bentancur, he is a key member of Conte’s team.

Missing the Uruguayan will make life a lot harder for Spurs, with the midfielder being vitally important for them this season.

The good news for Spurs fans though is that the pair still have five days to prepare for the north London derby.
