Fresh Tottenham injury update with key duo returning to boost squad ahead of Arsenal match

Tottenham are hoping for the return of some of their injured stars to give manager Antonio Conte’s team a better chance of finding another win.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is likely to have Dejan Kulusevski, who hasn’t kicked a ball since boxing day, and Yves Bissouma back for the north London derby against Arsenal.

According to the latest training videos, kulusevski is working with two coaching staff.

Bissouma, who withdrew ahead of the game against Portsmouth, is back among the group.

Tottenham produced a sterling display at Crystal Palace to beat the Eagles 4-0 and breath life into their top four ambitions but they face an Arsenal side who will come at them buoyed on by their top of the table standing.

The last time the Gunners visited Tottenham it was the beginning of the end of their top four quest, but they will be hoping to upset the Lilywhites this time around and take all three points, knowing that any slip up will be gobbled up by Manchester City who are in second place and take on Manchester United.

Both Arsenal and Tottenham still have players in the treatment room, with the Gunners without striker Gabriel Jesus, following his knee operation.

Spurs will be without Richarlison due to an injury he picked while with Brazil at the World Cup.

Another Brazilian, Lucas Moura, has been out for most of the season, but the return of Kulusevki and Bissoua will be a lift for manager Antonio Conte.

Last season Arsenal looked like they would get top four with just five games to go, but Spurs found it within themselves to snatch Champions League football and they will hope they are the ones who inflict only the second league defeat to Mikel Arteta’s side so far.
