Tottenham are hoping to continue their strong start to the season when they host Sheffield United in the Premier League this weekend.

Everything seems to be going on well at Tottenham including injuries with midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur ahead of schedule who was spotted in training ahead of their Premier League game against Sheffield United.

Manager Ange Postecogolu has maintained he will only be fully fit for football somehwere in November but he was spotted training with the first team as they prepared for their game against Sheffield United this weekend.

The Uruguay international injured his knee in a game against Leicester last February and has not been involved which took a major part of Tottenham’s game last season.

In that period they have changed managers and changed the style of play but his return will add options and raise the level of competition in the team.

Tottenham manager said when asked about the midfielder’s return date: “There’s not a defined [comeback date] but he is getting closer. I think probably around November time, we’d be looking to reintegrate him into it. He’s ticking all the boxes so far. He’s really keen.

“He came to see me yesterday wanting to train and within a minute I had one of the medical team running behind him to collar him and drag him out. He’s definitely keen and it’ll be great to get him back because his contribution when he first came to the club was outstanding.

“In many respects, he’ll be like another new signing for us, which is great but we won’t rush it. It’s obviously a significant injury so we’re probably looking around that timescale.”

Cristian Romero who travelled to South America and captain Son Heung-min are all back in training with little to no concerns ahead of the game against the Blades.
