Toby Alderweireld could be available for North London Derby claims Mourinho

As reported by the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is hopeful that key defender Toby Alderweireld will be back for the weekend clash against Arsenal.

The 31-year-old Alderweireld had been impressive form for Tottenham before succumbing to a groin injury in our 2-0 win against Manchester City on 21 November.

Mourinho had claimed earlier that the Belgian international could be ruled out for two to four weeks. However, it seems like the defender could be in for a return much sooner than expected.

Alderweireld was seen training with the rest of the squad on Wednesday ahead of our UEFA Europa League clash against LASK. And although the 31-year-old will not be involved on Thursday night in LASK, Mourinho claimed that he could be back for the first North London Derby of the season this weekend.

“Yes, he has a chance, not for tomorrow, he’s not even an option, he’s not ready, but in his process of recovery, he’s doing very well and there is a chance that he plays.”

With Alderweirled unavailable, Mourinho handed Joe Rodon his first Premier League start on Sunday against Chelsea and the youngster impressed heavily. However, with him not registered for the Europa League, Davinson Sanchez could be in line for a start against LASK. (h/t TottenhamHotspur.com)

“Joe (Rodon) played against Chelsea and that wasn’t an easy match to play. Davinson (Sanchez) could play tomorrow, too. We have our options, so if Toby can’t play, we won’t cry, like we didn’t against Chelsea.”
