Gareth Bale expected to be fit for Tottenham game against Manchester City

According to Football.london, Tottenham Hotspur have received a major injury boost ahead of the big game against Manchester City in ten days, with Gareth Bale expected to be fit and available.

Bale returned to Tottenham Hotspur this past summer, signing on a season-long loan from La Liga champions Real Madrid. However, the Welshman endured a difficult start to life back in London due to fitness problems.

But having achieved match fitness now, the 31-year-old is slowly getting back into the groove. Bale scored the first goal of his second spell at the club against Brighton & Hove Albion, which was followed by a decent display in the UEFA Europa League against Ludogorets.

On the back of it, Bale started his first Premier League game of the season against West Bromwich Albion and had another positive outing before being taken off for Lucas Moura. Post that, the Wales international was seen receiving treatment on his ankle from the medical team. (h/t Football.london)

Naturally, there were a lot of alarms raised, considering that Bale had just started to get into his stride at the club. However, those fears are allayed now, as it is now being claimed that the 31-year-old is likely to play some part for the Wales national team during the current international break.

Even though he is unlikely to play any part in the friendly against the USA, it is expected that the winger will play some part in the UEFA Nations League encounters against the Republic of Ireland and Finland. And should he come unscathed from these two games, Bale should be able to feature against Manchester City.
