Injury News: Tottenham midfielder Pape Matar Sarr resumes training before Fulham showdown

There were considerable doubts about Pape Matar Sarr after he was pictured with an ice pack on his foot during his national duty with Senegal during the October international break.

Sarr has been one of the revelations of the season under Ange Postecoglou, playing nine games across competitions. And he has been getting regular playing time.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg falling out of favour has done the Senegal international a lot of good. Hence, Sarr’s potential injury problem on international duty would have come as a scare for those in N17.

But according to the Evening Standard, the 21-year-old midfielder returned to training on Wednesday (18 October). And that can only be good news.

Sarr could feature vs Fulham

The Premier League game against Fulham is on Monday, which ensures more recovery time for our players coming back from international break. The game is also at home against a side we are expected to beat — at least that is what the fans will want to think.

Hence, there is no need to take needless risks here anyway. Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min are also apparently expected to feature against the Cottagers.

All in all, the international break doesn’t seem to have caused us much damage, if any. It did come at an annoying time, as James Maddison said, but at least it has ended without any major losses for us.

Once Rodrigo Bentancur returns from his long-term knee injury suffered last season, our midfield will be very, very strong. As for Sarr, it seems like his time at Tottenham will only get better.
