Tottenham Handed Major Injury Boost As Two First-Team Stars Close In On Return

Mousa Dembele (L) and Victor Wanyama (R)

As the international break finally comes to an end and World Cup qualification more or less done for most teams, we can look forward to the return of the Premier League. Tottenham will be looking for all three points against Bournemouth as Mauricio Pochettino’s men play at Wembley and there could be more good news for Spurs regarding a couple of players.

Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele have been a couple of players missing through injury but Football.London claims that the pair could return against the Cherries on Saturday.

That would be great news for us given that we would have to play a large number of games in the upcoming month or two. The Champions League fixtures would be the meat in between the Premier League sandwiches and having more options for the midfield can only be a good thing for us.

Dembele has been out since 19 September due to an ankle injury but is expected to return to the first-team by Saturday.

Wanyama hasn’t played much this season due to a knee injury and the Kenyan too is expected to be fit for the game against Bournemouth. While we may not see the pair start the game against Eddie Howe’s men, it would be great to have them back and maybe, they could play a few minutes towards the end just to ease back into the team.

We would have to be careful with their situation as the last thing needed would be to aggravate their current injuries. Dembele has been one of the players that has stated that he may not always be 100% after his latest surgery while Wanyama has been a big miss for us simply because of his immense work-rate and defensive ability.

The Manchester clubs might be running away with the Premier League title but we still could have a say given the pair has been dealt with major injury blows in recent weeks. Getting our team fit and ready to go would be ideal and with Dembele and Wanyama returning, this could be the start of a mini period of domination for us.
