Midfielder Sparks Injury Boost For Tottenham – Poised To Return On Time To Face Everton

published :

Tottenham Hotspur received a boost ahead of their next weekend trip to Everton as Victor Wanyama is poised to return from injury, according to reports from sports injury website PhysioRoom.com.

The Kenyan captain was unable to play in Spurs’ previous league game and was also unavailable for his national team due to a cartilage knee injury. However, he has recovered in time and would be available for selection when Tottenham travel to Goodison Park on Saturday.

The tough-tackling midfielder has been a constant fixture in Mauricio Pochettino’s team since his arrival. With his tough-tackling style, Wanyama has been able to let the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen enjoy the freedom in the final third.

More recently, the Lilywhites drew 1-1 against Burnley at Wembley. There is a cause of concern among the home fans that the ‘Wembley Curse’ could haunt the team this season as they play at Wembley while their new stadium gets ready.

The return of Wanyama could just be the tonic required for the side as they look forward to get back on track in the Premier League. After three games, we have just four points, with one win, one loss, and one draw. The game against Everton is very important and Pochettino will surely welcome the return of his key midfielder.

The addition of new names on the deadline day of the summer transfer window should help Spurs. Fernando Llorente has joined from Swansea and his experience would be vital. Also joining the team are defenders Serge Aurier and Davinson Sanchez, giving more teeth to the back four.

Will Wanyama’s presence inspire Spurs to a victory at the Goodison Park? It is interesting to note that when the two sides go head-to-head, it would represent sides at opposite spectrum of cash spent. The Toffees have been one of the heaviest spenders in this window while Spurs are one of the very few clubs to have made a profit on the dealings.

Critics point out that Wanyama keeps getting into troubles, often picking up unnecessary cards. However, I personally feel that his strong presence in the midfield is a great boon for Tottenham.
