Key First Team Midfielder Is Ready To Face Arsenal After Recovering From Injury Issues

Published

Mousa Dembele

Tottenham might be the favourites for the much anticipated Premier League clash against arch-rivals Arsenal at the weekend and our chances of winning the game might have received a timely boost as one of our players is ready to face the Gunners.

Mousa Dembele, who was one of the best midfielders last season in the Premier League, has had to deal with a number of injury problems this campaign. The 30-year-old has been provided a few minutes here and there but is now ready to face Arsenal.

“My injury is much better,” Dembele told Sky Sports. “I played 45 minutes in the last game (against Crystal Palace) so it is good.

“Of course, I want to be playing for the team and adding my value but right now I am very optimistic and feel good.”

Dembele has had a lot of problems regarding his injuries but that has not really affected our results as we also won 3-1 against Real Madrid with the Belgian only playing around 24 minutes of that game.

We all know that Mauricio Pochettino is easing the player back by giving him sporadic minutes but Dembele does provide us with a lot more in midfield than Eric Dier and the sooner he returns to full fitness, the better it would be for us.

Dembele would be needed for other games which fill our calendars, such as the FA Cup and the Champions League knockout rounds and his experience will surely come in handy. We do have to keep him fit for the remainder of the season and that could be one reason why the 30-year-old may not start the game against Arsene Wenger’s men.

The other reason could be the fact that we are doing pretty well without him starting games for us and he could come on for the last 20 minutes or so when the game is won or when we need to create something.

Hopefully, the latter scenario does not take place and we can win the game easily and keep some pressure on Manchester City, who are at the top of the table.

Games against Arsenal are never easy but we do start as favourites in this one, even if Dembele does not start for us.
