Tottenham are without a win in six matches as Mourinho struggles with a myriad of injury problems to his best players. Apart from Sissoko, the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son, Steven Bergwijn and Ben Davies are all sidelined.

With the football season currently in a hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak, Spurs could expect to see the Frenchman work his way up to full fitness before the season reconvenes.

Moussa Sissoko has been out for more than two months

Sissoko has not played since injuring himself against Southampton in January. He was expected to be out till April and his earlier than expected return will be seen as a sign of good fortune.

The club posted a video of the player in training on Twitter. You can view the video below.

Tottenham currently lack a powerful presence in midfield following the lack of impact Tanguy Ndombele had had. Mourinho was openly critical of the 23-year-old following his performance against Burnley.

Given the scenario, Sissoko’s return will add much-needed power and muscle in the midfield, leaving Spurs one less position to worry about.

Sissoko joined Tottenham from Newcastle United in 2017 in a deal worth £30 million. he has gone on to make 151 appearances for the club. He has scored four goals and 15 assists in that time. The midfielder has enjoyed a new lease of life under Mourinho and has turned into a crucial member of the squad after the manager’s arrival.
