Tottenham have announced a timely injury boost with the news that midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies have returned to first-team training.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho has had to contend with a growing injury list since taking over in November, something which he was keen to document again after Tuesday’s defeat to RB Leipzig.
Sissoko suffered a knee injury during the New Year’s Day defeat to Southampton – the same match Harry Kane sustained a serious hamstring tear.
Last month boss Mourinho revealed his hope that the Frenchman would return for April, but he could be back even earlier.
“Moussa Sissoko and Ben Davies have commenced integration into first team training,” a statement on the club’s official website read.
Davies has also endured an injury-hit campaign, suffering an ankle problem in Mourinho‘s first game in charge, a 3-2 win at West Ham in November.
He returned for the victory at Aston Villa last month before he was ruled out with a hamstring injury, which saw him miss the club’s last three games.
The duo are not expected to feature at home to Manchester United on Sunday, but could be back in contention soon.
Davinson Sanchez, meanwhile, was back in training on Thursday after missing the Leipzig with a minor knock.
In other news, Harry Redknapp has offered his advice to Mourinho on how he can get Spurs out of their current slump.
Their defeat on Tuesday was the club’s fifth in six games, a run which has also seen them dumped out of the FA Cup and fall behind in the race for a top-four spot.
