The injury news was starting to look so positive from a Spurs perspective but as we head towards the weekend and that vital fixture with Manchester City, it seems that we could be without Gareth Bale after all.
For all the blood spinning that the Welshman has endured over the last week or so, the Daily Mail has reported that his recovery is now behind schedule and the more likely date for his return is the 27th of April when we travel to FA Cup finalists Wigan.
Meanwhile, the same report suggests that Aaron Lennon is ‘touch and go’ as the right sided winger also missed training following his recent knee issue.
With Younes Kaboul limping out of his most recent Under 21 comeback, it seems that at least three of the four players expected to return to the squad will be missing from the squad that faces Manchester City this week. Only Jermain Defoe is now likely to be available.
