Tottenham receive injury boost as defender set to return to training

Kyle Walker-Peters is set to give Tottenham a major boost and return to training ahead of their meeting with Crystal Palace next Saturday.

The 22-year-old has not played for Spurs since suffering a hamstring problem in the first-half of Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United last month, an injury that forced him to miss the 2-2 draw in the North London derby against Arsenal last Sunday.

Walker-Peters has not trained since the problem, but according to The Sun, he should once again be available for selection to face the Eagles at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

If fit, the defender could come straight back into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI, especially given the number of problems Spurs have endured at right-back at the start of the campaign.

Davinson Sanchez started there against the Gunners, but after his poor performance is unlikely to feature there again, whilst Serge Aurier, who hasn’t featured this term, looks to be out of favour with Pochettino after he was an unused substitute at the Emirates, meaning the door could once again open for the England Under-21 international.
