'Good news at last': Some Spurs fans buzzing over report they've read

Spurs fans have welcomed the report claiming Cristian Romero, Giovani Lo Celso and Davinson Sanchez could be available against Chelsea.

Tottenham currently have some big defensive issues, with Japhet Tanganga unavailable this weekend and Eric Dier a doubt.

Tanganga, who played at centre back against Crystal Palace on Saturday, is suspended following his red card at Selhurst Park.

Meanwhile, Dier limped off with a dead leg in the 3-0 defeat, so it remains to be seen whether he’ll be fit against the Blues.

According to the Daily Mail, Romero, Lo Celso and Sanchez will be back in the UK on Saturday.

The three players went to South America over the September international break to play for Argentina and Colombia respectively.

Given mainland South America is on the UK government’s red list, the trio would’ve had to quarantine in a hotel if they flew in directly.

By spending 10 days training in Croatia, on the UK government green list, they won’t have to self-isolate upon returning to British soil.

And because Spurs sent a fitness coach out to Croatia, the trio should be match-fit and ready to feature against the Blues.

Here is what some Spurs fans have been saying on Twitter:
